The Israeli right-wing is getting more and more nervous and crazy. This from one of them, Barry Chamish, writing from Jerusalem:
"The Israelis could launch a pre-emptory nuclear strike
against Mecca and Medina. The primary symbols of Islam would be reduced to
radioactive dust. If the Israelis used a cobalt-tipped bomb, Muslims could
not visit Mecca for millennia. Yet Muslims are told to do so at least once
in a lifetime.
"This tactic is Israel's trump card strategically. Everyone in power in the
Middle East knows it, but no one ever mentions it publicly. Muslims venerate
Mecca and Medina and their monuments. When veneration becomes superstition,
monuments become primary military targets for the enemy. If the Jews blast
Mecca's rock into radioactive dust, the fallout will be more than
radioactive dust. It could be the end of Islam.
"Do I think this attack will ever happen? Yes. The Israelis know they are in
a fight to the death. They know they will never be accepted by Arabs as
lawful residents in the region. Over time, they will be overcome
demographically. They know it. Their enemies know it. So, when push comes to
shove, Mecca and Medina will disappear."
**And that is a very likely motive for the worldwide pushing of Israel against the wall, double-entendre intended. We could demoralize Islam, maybe permanently, for the New World Order to come.
