Scoundrels Attack Gunter Grass Truths

Grass deserves praise, not condemnation.

by Stephen Lendman

Touching the most sensitive nerves has risks. Nearly always hostile responses follow. 

Criticizing Israel is the third rail of US politics. It's also largely off limits in scoundrel media managed news, op-eds, and editorials. 

Gunter Grass took the risks. He acted forthrightly. His new poem "What Must Be Said" explained that he'll no longer be silent on what's long been known but virtually never discussed publicly. 

Israel's nuclear armed and dangerous. A previous article discussed it. Portions are repeated below to explain what's vital to know.

In his 1991 book, "The Samson Option: Israel's Nuclear Arsenal and America Foreign Policy," Seymour Hersh discussed its strategy to launch a massive nuclear counterattack if it felt its existence threatened.

In his 1997 book, "Open Secrets: Israeli Nuclear and Foreign Policies," Israel Shahak said that, helped by the Israeli Lobby (and Christian Zionists), "Israel (is) clearly prepar(ing) itself to seek overtly a hegemony over the entire Middle East (with no) hesitati(on) to use for the purpose all means available, including nuclear ones."

According to Hebrew University's Professor of Military History Martin Van Creveld, "We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you (it) will happen before Israel goes under."

Israel hypocritically maintains double standard duplicity. It wants other regional states denied what it reserves the right to have and use preemptively.

In 1948, David Ben-Gurion began Israeli efforts to develop nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons technology.

Ernst David Bergmann, became the father of Israel's bomb. He ran the Israeli Atomic Energy Commission.(IAEC).

In his farewell address, Ben-Gurion told the Israeli Armaments Development Authority (RAFAEL):

"I am confident, based not only on what I heard today, that our science can provide us with the weapons that are needed to deter our enemies from waging war against us."
