Adelson: Nuke Iran to Get It to Talk Business (Video)

Sheldon Adelson, a top backer of Republican and right-wing pro-Israel causes, advocated bombing Iran with a nuclear device as a means of negotiation.

“You pick up your cell phone and you call somewhere in Nebraska and you say ‘OK, let it go,’ and so there’s an atomic weapon goes over, ballistic missiles in the middle of the desert that doesn’t hurt a soul, maybe a couple of rattlesnakes and scorpions or whatever,” Adelson said in a rare public appearance on Oct. 22 at Yeshiva University in New York. “And then you say, ‘See? The next one is in the middle of Tehran.’”

Adelson criticized the Obama administration’s readiness to negotiate with Iran’s leaders toward undoing the country’s suspected nuclear weapons program.

“So, we mean business, you want to be wiped out? Go ahead, take a tough position and continue with nuclear development,” said Adelson, who owns a major Israeli newspaper which is supportive of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Adelson said that President F.D. Roosevelt could convince the British that it was “more important to them and to their future” not to sign the White Paper on Palestine in 1939 that limited Jewish immigration to Palestine. FDR had “unlimited leverage” because he could promise the British that the U.S. would enter World War II once the country ceased to be isolationist.

“He really had the leverage, he really had the upper hand,” Adelson said.

“Given your strong feelings about what the U.S. did not do to prevent the Holocaust,” Boteach asked, what are your feelings about “Obama speaking to Iran right now” and having diplomatic relations with Iran, given its threats against Israel? Not as a political person, but as a prominent American?

“You want to be peaceful, just reverse it all and we will guarantee that you can have a nuclear power plant for electricity purposes, energy purposes,” he said.

Adelson and his wife, Miriam, are major contributors to the Birthright Israel program.

  1. Openco says:

    Adelson should stick to gambling with money and not the future of planet earth. Disturbing stuff.

  2. Kirill Tuchin says:

    A tactical nuclear strike on their nuclear plant would solve the problem.

  3. Dan Silagi says:

    Mexico has a lot of drug dealers, who terrorize parts of the country. Maybe we ought to send a nuke to a relatively uninhabited part of Mexico, with the warning that the next one will wipe out Mexico City unless the Mexicans go along with our demands.

    Let's see how well that plays in the international community. I am rethinking my support of Birthright Israel.

  4. Sam Gilon says:

    Your comparison is totally perverted. Mexico doesn't threaten to wipe the US off the face of the earth. Their drug dealers just want to make money, and poisoning the willing is their way…
    The term "international Community" is crap (pardon for the expression). This is the same "International Community" that let 1 million people get massacred in Biafra, close to 1 million get massacred in Rwanda, let China rape Tibet, let North korea starve millions of its citizens to death, and recently let over 100 thousand people get killed in Syria. But if you just as much as scratch the butt of a Pale****nian you see the "International Community" rise in sanctimoneous indignation against Israel. "International community" my arse….

  5. Michael Dar says:

    OK you dismiss Adelson's viewpoint…what is your proposition for solution?

  6. Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build a nuclear bomb in as little as a month, according to a new estimate by one of the USA's top nuclear experts.

    The new assessment comes as the White House invited Senate staffers to a briefing on negotiations with Iran as it is trying to persuade Congress not to go ahead with a bill to stiffen sanctions against Iran.
    RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

  7. The US has the right to strike Iran witha nuke or without it, becouse the Iranian invaded US territory, the US Embassy in Teheran in1979 and this was an act of war.

  8. Dan Silagi says:

    Yes they did, and should have: In 1979.

  9. Dan Silagi says:

    When was the last time Iran threatened to wipe the USA off the face of the earth? Educate me on that one, you Obama-hating idiot. As for arses, you can kiss mine, Sammy.

  10. See if this feels familiar, as spoken by the Grand Ayatollah in Amazon Kindle's new thriller The Bahrain Protocol, "Continue to ask for negotiations; invite the U.S. and European nations to the talks; sow dissention and split them from each other." "The bomb is almost ready; lengthy negotiations will give us time to complete and test it."

    Iran's nuclear plans are about to come to fruition, and Israel's Jews will not live under the threat of being 15 minutes away from a Nuclear Holocaust. They will do something about it-in partnership with its former nemesis Saudi Arabia. And by the way, the U.S. will be dragged into it, kicking and screaming.

    Wish for the best, but prepare for the worst-read about the coming war in Amazon Kindle's prescient new thriller – The Bahrain Protocol.

  11. I believe this to be true. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    Israel urged the United States to pass a new round of sanctions against Tehran, and warned that Iran could potentially have enough fissile material for a bomb within weeks.

    An Israeli official issued comments on Iran’s nuclear program in response to reports from Washington that the White House wanted Congress to hold off on passing a new round of sanctions against Iran as a gesture in the midst of the ongoing six-party talks to diplomatically disarm Iran’s nuclear program
