"(W)e could get nastier about it," he stressed. "So, if in fact the Iranians aren't going to compromise, it would be best if somebody else started the war."
 

By that, he means America. He's mindless about potential catastrophic consequences. Numerous past articles discussed it. No sane leader would chance it. 

No legitimate analyst would urge it. No military commander worth his salt would risk it. Odds favor it happening anyway. Belligerent Zionists make it more likely. Netanyahu may be worst of all.

On September 25, Haaretz headlined "The Israeli prime minister is unfit to serve," saying:

Three decades ago, Menachem Begin was unfit. For weeks, it was acknowledged but kept hidden. Netanyahu exceeds his worst extremism.

"Many government ministers know this to be true." He's pressuring Washington to launch a war of choice. Israeli military commanders deplore his "messianic madness."

He's brazen, undisciplined, and defiant. He's got a knack for turning allies into enemies. He's interfering in America's election. He favors Romney over Obama and shows it. He's looking a gift horse in the mouth.

He's compromising a longstanding alliance. He opposes most Israeli officials and commanders. In 1983, Begin said "I cannot go on" and resigned. He fell on his sword. Netanyahu is too arrogant to replicate him.

"On the contrary. The more he realizes the distance between the picture in his head and reality".the more likely he is to step up his inflammatory rhetoric and rash actions to the point of jeopardizing Israel's very existence."

He wasn't elected by popular vote. Likud finished second. The Knesset approved a governing coalition. It's obligated to replace an unfit prime minister. It's urgent, given his rage to wage war when cooler heads around him deplore it for good reason.

War on Iran would be "an existential blunder." It's much more than that. Israel's existence would be threatened. Its cities, military and nuclear facilities would be bombed for the first time. Casualties would be enormous. So would world enmity.

What kind of leader discounts madness and urges do what I say anyway? Cabinet members must replace him before it's too late. Ordinary Israeli must speak out. 

War isn't a left, right or religious issue. International law aside, avoiding it must be prioritized. Failure will fall on the heads of "all those who fail to rise above themselves and take action."

It's their responsibility. It's urgent they prevent a potential regional holocaust. Failure may not get a second chance.
