Lateline: Iran’s pursuit of nuclear arms and its desire to drive Israel into the sea make for gloomy but salient interview


The elegance of Ms Sales’ appearance belied the seriousness of the subject matter she discussed with Mark Fitzpatrick of the International Institute for Strategic Studies tonight on Lateline, or did it? for perhaps the gravity of the topic called for a degree of formality nothing less: the pursuit of a nuclear weapons capacity by Iran.

With gravitas throughout the almost ten minute interview, these impressive interlocutors covered the dispiriting developments, and the possible consequences, of nuclear arming a regime publicly committed to the annihilation of the state of Israel.

Truly awful aftermaths hang on but threads as Israel witnesses the clear pursuit by a sworn lethal enemy of nuclear arms. Hatred and stupidity, mixed with the hallucinogen of divine sanction, are deeply embedded on both sides of this sorry state of affairs in the Middle East.

Wisdom, maturity, forbearance, and love are needed to effect the sharing of the Levant between Jew and Palestinian; generations on both sides have been born there now; they are essentially identical racially; must they shed oceans of blood again?
