Israel preparing for nuclear Iran

For the first time, an Israeli government body is preparing for the possibility of a nuclear Iran.
Revelations on Sunday of a Foreign Ministry team working on these contingency plans was the first admission that the government is giving serious thought to adjusting to a reality where Israel is no longer, according to foreign sources, the sole nuclear power in the region.

That the government is preparing various contingency plans for if it “wakes up one morning and there is a nuclear Iran” does not mean that Jerusalem has come to terms with this eventuality, but rather that it is preparing for it if it transpires, one government official explained.

“You prepare for a natural disaster even though you do everything in your power to make sure that it doesn’t happen,” the official said. “You have fire drills, even if you do everything you can to ensure that a fire never breaks out.”

The Foreign Ministry is not the only body drawing up “day after” options for Iran; the National Security Council is believed to be preparing similar papers as well.
I find this report deeply disturbing.

The article goes on to say that these sorts of preparations go on in the US all the time. That is true. But thus far, Iran does not have an ICBM to reach the United States, it has not declared its intentions to destroy the United States, and it is more than a few hundred miles away from the United States.

Is it going to be 'last one out, please turn out the lights' again (as was the case before the 1967 War)?

What could go wrong?

Stupid Jews resigned to being pushed into a nuclear oven.

Then again, those are the same Jews who couldn't seize Ahmedinejad in Lebanon because they were more concerned about world opinion than with bringing a mass murderer to justice.

What could go wrong indeed
