Norman Podhoretz Urges Israel to Bomb Iran

Conservative commentator Norman Podhoretz wrote in The Wall Street Journal late last week that Israel should attack Iran now to prevent it from gaining access to a nuclear weapon.

Israel can “put at least a temporary halt, and conceivably even a permanent one, to the relentless Iranian quest for the bomb” he wrote.

“The Obama administration tells us that the interim agreement puts Iran on a track that will lead to the abandonment of its quest for a nuclear arsenal. But the Iranians are jubilant because they know that the only abandonment going on is of our own effort to keep them from getting the bomb,” Podhoretz added.

“Adherents of the new consensus would have us believe that only two choices remain: a war to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons or containment of a nuclear Iran — with containment the only responsible option. I remain convinced that containment is impossible, from which it follows that the two choices before us are not war vs. containment but a conventional war now or a nuclear war later.”

He declared that “the only hope rests with Israel. If, then, Israel fails to strike now, Iran will get the bomb.”

  1. the writer is mad, and madness is not something strange among pro israelies

  2. Irrefutable logic and moral clarity. Thank you Mr Podhoretz. Iran is the #1 rogue terrorist state in the world. The West has tried diplomacy, appeasement and "containment" with Iran, and all have failed to stop Iran's murderous behavior. Only a fool would argue that a nuclear Iran with ballistic missiles would not be an imminent threat to world peace and that it could be "contained". Containment of Iran will be as successful as containment of Hitler.

  3. We will survive inspite of those that opose

  4. Yes, we will survive. We survived Hitler. Lost only six million. God truly loves us.

  5. Chamberlin was mad for peace and ignored reality. Podhoretz sees terrorism as it is. What do you not know about supplying Syria with weapons to kill 160000of its own people?

  6. Yes, let get one chance to Iran increasing the sanctions by the US congress, in case that fails Israel should bomb the Iran's nuclear and ballistic sites and much better to topple the Ayatollahs regime, the Iranians will be gratefull.

  7. there are 30000 Jews in Iran. They all are alive. Iranian regime have not obliterated the Jewish community in its territory. How would you accuse it intending to be the second Hitler for Israelis and the Jews how live abroad?

  8. The NCRI is comprised of 25 committees that act as shadow ministries. The committees are responsible for expert research and planning for future Iran. For more information visit http://www.ncr-iran.org/en
