I found this in the Age but it's on the SMH site:-
IRAN'S Ayatollah Ali Khamenei pledges to confront and defeat the ''cancerous tumour'' of Israel (World, 5/2) and international concern grows of a pre-emptive Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear installations. While the US and other countries urge Israel to wait for the effects of tough sanctions on Iran to be felt, it must be realised that we're discussing the survival of a people and a country.
It seems nobody but the Jews learn from history. Do the leaders of the international coalition forget the killing of 6 million Jews in Europe during World War II came about due to ''waiting'' and because the Allied leaders of the time took too long to confront Hitler and the Nazi Party?
Iran plans to wipe Israel off the map when equipped to do so. Which country in the world would countenance the prospect of obliteration by waiting until it happened? Even pacifists would fight for their lives if their backs were to the wall.
