The recent WSJ article by Elliot Abrams about “The enemy of my enemy” was excellent but self-defeating.

The Arab states want Israel to bomb Iran’s nuclear program into dust. But once the dust settles after Israel does the dirty and dangerous work for the Arabs they will revert to their old ways of hating Israel and supporting the terrorist organizations.

The Arab nations are terrorized by a nuclear Iran but not the least bit frightened by a nuclear Israel. They’re not afraid of Israel and they should be if Israel can ever make peace with them. Would Israel be the first to use the N bomb? No. Will Israel ever be destroyed because she didn’t use the N bomb? Yes and that is her weakness.

Stop playing nice.
