Israel may need to take out Iranian nukes

In today's FrontPageMagazine.com, Edward Bernard Glick makes a strong argument for Israel striking Iran first if negotiations over Iran's nuclear capability fail (as is appearing increasingly likely). The main reasons for this are Israel's small size and Iran's bellicosity:
Geography is the greatest reason Israel cannot tolerate an Iranian bomb. Israel is so tiny — smaller than New Jersey — that any nuclear exchange between the two countries may well extinguish the Jewish state.

Since world public opinion will blame the Israelis for whatever they do preemptively to save themselves, they might as well do what’s needed and what works, as soon as it is clear that further nonmilitary pressure upon Iran is useless. Israel must, with or without American help, strike first and strike successfully. It must take out not only Iran’s nuclear weaponry, but its delivery systems and command and control centers as well, because it is always better for Jews to be alive and condemned, than dead and eulogized.

An Israeli attack upon Iran will be condemned by the Arabs, the Muslims, the anti-Semites, the anti-Zionists, the anti-Americans and the appeasers. The United States, the European Union, the United Nations, the Pope, the Quakers, and the “war-can-never-be-an-option-in-the-twenty-first-century” postmodernists in academia and elsewhere may very well condemn Israel’s actions as well.
