The harsh language coming out of Israel the last few days sure makes war with Iran/Syria/Lebanon look imminent.

David Rothkopf
The Iranian nuclear program continues moving closer to weapons capability. Diplomacy doesn't seem to be working. And the Iranians themselves have matched their rhetoric about the annihilation of Israel with direct support for attacks on its people, like the suicide-bomb murder of five Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, which U.S. officials have linked to Iran.
It is often hard for Americans to grasp the idea of an existential threat to a nation. Since the end of the Cold War, the notion that any single actor with any single act could effectively obliterate Americans or their lifestyle is very hard for many people to get their brains around. But that is exactly the threat that Israelis face from even a "limited" Iranian nuclear attack.
And though it is reasonable to debate whether the Iranians would actually use such a weapon against Israel given the likely consequences for them, from the Israeli perspective, given Iranian threats and actions, the risks of guessing wrong about the intent of the leaders in Tehran are so high that inaction could easily be seen to be the imprudent path.

Actually, there are a lot of Christians who are Arabs, so your statement shows a lack of even basic understanding.

And do you know the word Christian Arabs use for God? Allah, as it simply means God... The SAME God in all 3 major Abrahamic Religions (I.e., Judaism, Christianity, Islam), despite what the willfully ignorant wish to believe. In fact, Jesus, who spoke Aramaic (and Koine Greek) also called God, "Allah", as that is the Aramaic word for God... Jesus was not fluent in Hebrew, at all. He prayed, as per the Torah, by falling prostrate to (getting on his hands and knees and bowing his head) and prayed to "Allah"... What other religion does that?


Lastly... While there are people in Iran who are of Arabic decent, native Iranians are NOT Arabs, but Persians... They also do NOT even speak the same language, but speak Farci.


And, while there aren't many, there are also Christians who are Israelis.



A little research may give you a clearer picture of reality... Remember, the more informed one is, the more of an "informed" opinion they can have.

rrAdam,

I'm well aware of all of the information you have provided, thank you.

But, when I use those terms on climbing forums, they are only referencing the political/religious leaders of current Arab states and Iran.

Your trolling has lost that interesting subtle nuances that make the reader wonder if you're serious, crazy, or just goofin'.
