Netanyahu was right about Iran.

JUST four days before the historic nuclear weapons deal was signed with Iran, hundreds of thousands of Iranians, including the so-called moderate President Hassan Rouhani celebrated "Al-Quds Day" by chanting "Death to Israel" and burning Israeli flags.

On the same day, Ali Khamenei, the Supreme leader of Iran posted a photo of himself trampling the Israeli flag.

In response to the Iran deal, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said its a "bad mistake of historic proportions." Why would any rational person disagree with the view of Mr Netanyahu? The leader of Israel knows that Shi'ite eschatology teaches that the Jews must be eradicated before Allah introduces the Day of Judgement.

In our dialogue with the Iranians, we were confronted by people who hold religious beliefs for which there is no rational justification, and yet these are the very beliefs that underlie many of the reasons why they want to acquire nuclear weaponry.

What will Israel do if an Iranian theocracy gets close to building a nuclear bomb? In such a situation, the only thing likely to ensure their survival may be a nuclear first strike of their own.
