Israel: podemos destruir todas as capitais europeias
We have the capability to take the world down with us
Iran can never be threatened in its very existence. Israel can. Indeed, such a threat could even grow out of the current intifada. That, at least, is the pessimistic opinion of Martin Van Crevel, professor of military history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. ‘If it went on much longer,’ he said, ‘the Israeli government [would] lose control of the people. In campaigns like this, the anti-terror forces lose, because they don’t win, and the rebels win by not losing. I regard a total Israeli defeat as unavoidable. That will mean the collapse of the Israeli state and society. We’ll destroy ourselves.’
In this situation, he went on, more and more Israelis were coming to regard the ‘transfer’ of the Palestinians as the only salvation; resort to it was growing ‘more probable’ with each passing day. Sharon ‘wants to escalate the conflict and knows that nothing else will succeed’.
But would the world permit such ethnic cleansing? ‘That depends on who does it and how quickly it happens. We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: “Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.” I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.’ — in The war game-The Gun and the Oliver Branch by David Hirst, guardian.co.uk, Sunday 21 September 2003 00.51 BST.
COMENTÁRIO: ora aqui está um recado que a pró-Sionista imprensa portuguesa, e boa parte dos nossos invertebrados comentadores de política internacional, vão gostar de saborear. O incidente entre Erdogan (Turquia) e Shimon Perez (Israel), que marcou a conferência de Davos deste Inverno, testemunha bem a gravidade das feridas deixadas pela recente invasão criminosa da faixa da Gaza pelas forças armadas israelitas.
