The talk on the airways has been the opening session of the United Nations. Who rankles me most is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He is so arrogant. He uses every opportunity to insult President Obama. His favorite topic is Iran, which he insists has a plan to make a nuclear bomb.
I heard an expert describing in detail the exact stage of development that the Iranians are in for enriching uranium-235. According to him, and assuming that it is Irans intention, Iran might be ready for one crude nuclear bomb at the end of the next year.
To my simple mind, it would be insane for Iran to try to attack Israel. Frankly speaking, it would be suicidal. After all, Israel is in the possession of 100 of the most sophisticated nuclear bombs, which it would immediately mobilize. This would result in total annihilation of Iran, as we know it, from this earth, with its 7,000-year-old Persian culture all gone to smithereens.
