Why Iran Matters?
I intend to write more in the coming days on the issue of Iran, but since I have not written in about a year due to health issues, I feel like the need to make a basic point here.
We are facing the very real possibility that Iran is going to have nuclear weapons within in a few years, maybe even as soon as 2010. This is a state led by a man who has spoken openly of removing the nation of Israel off the map. Whatever your feeling about the need for a Palestinian state, and I am in favour of it if they can prove they can govern without corruption, without violence an dmost importanly, without devoting themselves to killing their neighbours in Israel, the fact is that the current regime in Iran has stated its desire to end Israel. This is deeply troubling.
