A Pastoral Perspective

It was the most alarming and depressing article I have read in years. A professor of Middle Eastern Studies at Ben Gurion University, Dr. Benny Morris, authored a piece entitled This Holocaust Will Be Different. This Jerusalem Post article was not written to warn Israel and the West of a possible scenario, rather it was presented as something that will happen; as inevitable.

The center of Dr. Morris' concern is Iran. He is quite certain that no one will act to stop Iran from getting the bomb. As appeasement is part of the human condition, it seems that the West has this disease in its last stages. He believes that the present economic sanctions on Iran from the U.N. are limited. The U.N. Security Council will not approve serious economic sanctions - China, Russia and possibly France would veto any truly onerous measures. Further, Dr. Morris anticipates military action is a non starter; the U.N. or N.A.T.O would never approve this option. Only the United States seems to have some resistance to appeasement but after the Iraq debacle, the U.S. will not stop Iran through military action. So, Iran will get the bomb.
