(Jerusalem Post )

Defense minister comments after Home Front Command general warns of looming Mideast war, says Israel’s enemies wouldn’t dare use chemical weapons on Israelis, Assad’s days are numbered.

“We do not see a reason for any of our adversaries to initiate a large scale conflict with Israel.” (quote from Barak)

Firstly – since when did reason enter the equation ?

Some people would consider that the actions of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbullah – and, even, our “partner in peace ” , the indefatigable Mr Abbas, would indicate that reason is not their prime motivating factor!

Secondly – if memory serves – I seem to remember similar wording – if not the IDENTICAL wording – sometime prior to Yom Kippur 1973!

If this is the mindset of our Minister of DEFENCE – then I, for one, am very nervous!
