On 22nd December 2013. John Jay of summer patriot, winter soldier wrote; “When the west walked away from Israel at the recent & latest Geneva confab, leaving Iran an open door to nuclear weapons without intervention, the matter for Israel was reduced to a very simple existential question”.
Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 1.
to be, or not to be? that is the question— whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles,and, by opposing, end them?
to die, to sleep—no more—and by a sleep to say we end the heartache and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to—’tis a consummation devoutly to be wished! to die, to sleep.
to sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub, for in that sleep of death what dreams may come when we have shuffled off this mortal coil, must give us pause.
“In my view Israel must strike iran to preserve herself, and to preserve all that is good and noble in our tradition, our Judeo-Christian heritage. it is calumny of that tradition for the west to turn its collective back on Israel …. a true measure of the depths to which the west has sunk, a true measure of the repudiation by our politicians of what we hold dear. may god damn them. I don’t have much truck for Islam. it seems to me the embodiment of hate and envy. I would prefer any end to matters as would preserve Israel as opposed to elevating Islam’s hate and rapacious appetite for the good and plenty of others. It is a simple choice between good and evil, and I hope Israel does what it must to preserve all that is good in Israel. And, to destroy evil.”
