A Haaretz poll days earlier revealed that half the Israeli public "greatly fear(s)" for Israel's survival in case of war against Iran. Most respondents think the chance it may happen "medium" or "high."
Tel Aviv University statistician Camil Fuchs conducted the poll. Only one-fourth of those interviewed aren't afraid for Israel's future. Less than one-fifth favor war without US support.
Nearly five in six Palestinians and 77% of Israelis believe attacking Iran will launch a regional conflict.
As long as Netanyahu remains prime minister, war remains prioritized. He compared Israeli "civilization" to Iranian "barbarism." Doing so inverts truth. Iran promotes peace, diplomacy, and cooperation. Israel can't wait to start another war.
Like Obama, Netanyahu is a serial liar. They're both world class thugs. They claim aggressive wars are liberating ones or waged in self-defense. They call mass slaughter and destruction humanitarian intervention.
They think inviolable rule of law principles are quaint and out of date. They believe "do unto others" no longer matters. They champion might over right.
They dismissively ignore human need. They believe their way alone is the right way. They target non-believers with death and destruction.
"The hour is getting late, very late," Netanyahu raged. Iran represents "a fanatic ideology bent on world domination."
