  1. Of course. The other Arab Nations will do nothing to Israel. They are incapable of serioius warfare. All their threats are empty. Don’t worry. Israel go ahead & attack Irans nuclear power plants.

  2. Puzzeled…like it or not they are the first target… their opinion counts. if you dont stop Iran now, those crazy persians will strike where you live. there is a little Haman in all of them. someone sent this to me a few weeks ago.

    In the Book of Esther, towards the end of the story, King Ahasuerus allows the Jews to avenge themselves of their enemies on the 13th day of Adar. In Shushan, the capital, the Jews kill 75000 men and hung Haman’s ten sons on a gallows.

    Queen Esther then approaches the King with an additional request: “…allow the Jews who are in Shushan to do tomorrow as they did today, and let the ten sons of Haman be hanged on the gallows” (Esther 9:13). It’s curious that she would request the hanging of Haman’s already slain sons. Nevertheless, the King complies.

    Now, the Hebrew word for “tomorrow” (“machar”) often refers to the distant future. Further, the Midrash states that whenever the word “king” appears in the Megillah it alludes to the King of kings as well. Thus, the verse could be understand as a request by Esther to G-d to again hang the ten sons of Haman at some point in the distant future.

    Now, when the Megillah lists the ten sons Haman during their hanging (9:7-9) there are a number of unusually-sized letters. (We have a tradition to write certain letters in the Torah larger or smaller than the standard size.) According to the most accepted tradition, there is a large ‘vuv’ (numerical value = 6) and a small ‘tuv’ (400), ‘shin’ (300) and ‘zayin’ (7). The following suggestion has been made: The large vuv refers to the sixth millennium (of the Hebrew calendar); the small letters refer to year 707 of that millennium. The meaning, then, is that G-d agreed to hang Haman’s ten sons again in the year 5707 = 1946-7.

    On October 1, 1946, a few days before Yom Kippur, the first of the major Nuremberg trials was concluded. Ten of the chief Nazi masterminds and instigators were sentenced to hanging. (The actual number was twelve; one was sentenced in absentia and another committed suicide before his execution.) The last of them, Julius Streicher, on his way to the gallows and after his face was covered, cried out, for no apparent reason, “Purim Fest 1946!” And again, Esther’s request was fulfilled.

    And when will her request be fulfilled again?

  3. Yes. Interesting points of course.

    Nevertheless, most Israelis do not really know what to expect and are not more expert than anyone else, or at least anyone who pays attention to what is going on in the world. No one know what to expect, and because someone living there believes that something will or will not happen does not change anything.

    The media will ask a person whom is quite old what their “secret to long life” is. They usually will say something, but actually have no idea. The media will ask the inhabitants of a particular country what to expect for that country, but that does not change anything at all. Decisions have to be made using other information.

    Of course, I hope the Israelis are correct, and I am not getting into whether they are or not.
