Abraham Foxman: The Professor Who Wants To Give Iran The Bomb

Abe Foxman

Abe Foxman

In fact, the example of Israel proves the opposite point. In the case of Israel, the Arabs did not see a need to build their own bombs because they knew, despite their rhetoric, that Israel was no threat to them.

In the case of Iran there is true anxiety in the Arab world and the likelihood of proliferation is very high indeed.

In sum, Iran is and should be seen as a threat by Israel, by the Arabs, by the Western world.

Waltz’s piece is a last-ditch and fairly pathetic effort to argue against international moves to stop an Iranian bomb. It is absurd on its face.

But because of where it was published and by whom, and because there are many in the elites who share at least some of his thinking, we probably haven’t heard the last of this.

Abraham H. Foxman is national director of the Anti-Defamation League.

    Abe Foxman is a self hating, God hating profoundly mentally ill Marxist dog–he is hell bent on destroying the USA and Israel!

    Abe Foxman promotes all manner of sexual perversions–even to small children–he promotes hatred of those who stand for good moral values and against homosexual perversions.

    Abe Foxman is no friend of Israel or of the Jewish people–no one could be and promote the anti God and anti human things this man promotes–this man is a criminal!

  2. Gil Gilman says:

    This is an excellent analysis, whatever his views on any other issue.

Worried about a nuclear Iran? Do you think such a development would not only threaten Israel’s existence but would intimidate the Arab countries of the Gulf, put the radical Islamist regime in position to threaten the West, and lead to unmanageable nuclear proliferation? Have no fear! Kenneth N. Waltz, the highly respected professor of international relations at Columbia University, argues in a recent article of Foreign Affairs magazine that “Iran Should Get the Bomb.”

There was a time when no one living in Israel needed a reminder of what was at stake when the Jewish state was created in 1948 in the aftermath of World War II and the Nazi Holocaust.

The threat of the infiltration of Sharia, or Islamic law, into the American court system is one of the more pernicious conspiracy theories to gain traction in our country in recent years.
