You think the neturei karta are the only ones who want to be Ahmadnejad's friend?
According to today's Jerusalem Post, Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb is going to co-lead a delegation of 21 peace activists to Iran.
I feel so much better now. Peace with Iran is almost at hand. What a relief.
The good rabbi wants "to humanize the face of Iran, lest we end up with a disaster of global proportions we cannot imagine".
She believes that we should negotiate and talk with Iran not threaten to obliterate them, which apparently Hillary Clinton did while stumping for votes. The article goes on to say:
What about the threat to Israel? "I don't think Iran is going to attack Israel; I think it's a chimera. Iran has never initiated a war. And the fact that Israel has never signed the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and that it has nuclear weapons, is one of the reasons Iran wants nuclear weapons. Israel has already bombed Iraq and Syria. It is not [unreasonable] for Iran to think it will also be a target. Maybe we should be pressuring everybody to sign the NPT. We should be [backing] the forces of peace, not the forces advocating war."
Iran thinks it will also be a target? Are they afraid? Yes, Israel has bombed Iraq and Syria, but she's omitting the little fact that it was their NUCLEAR REACTORS that were bombed. Now these countries are less of a threat, at least until they get another reactor up and running. Less of a threat to us and to the entire region, maybe even the world. A strong Israel benefits everyone.
Rabbi Gottlieb joins the ranks of Jimmy Carter, and that rabbi-guy from Neturei Karta. Appeasers. The people they visit probably laugh their heads off as the door closes behind them.
Gottlieb insist she's not naive. After all she is a student of history. And she's doing this for her children and grandchildren.
What about MY children and grandchildren???
I don't think she's helping them.
