The Samson option will ensure that if Israel falls there will be a ring of states surrounding Israel that are radioactive cinders. I think they have mastered thermonuclear designs and have a small supply of very powerful weapons and lots of smaller ones.
Israel has several excellent targets that do not even need nukes. Consider the results of the collapse of the Aswan dam. Most everything in Egypt is located very close to the Nile river.
And, of course, the Kaaba in Mecca won't move at all. Easy target for a high yield weapon. the possibilities are almost endless.
Once Arabs don't have Israel to blame for their problems, they'll have to reconsider some of their weirder creepier ways... or not.
They probably have small nukes already located in strategic locations, just waiting for the right signal...
They could annihilate Israel with the help of Pakistan, which has nukes.
“The Samson option will ensure that if Israel falls there will be a ring of states surrounding Israel that are radioactive cinders.”
I would like to believe you’re right, but I sense that if that moment comes — when the Jews finally face their own end — that their inner “Jewish guilt” will prevent them from pulling the trigger en masse on their enemies. As Jews, it’s simply “not in them” to do so.
This is an angst that seems to thrive within Jews (particulary American Jews, but not limited to them), creating an almost palpable “ethnic guilt” that compels Jews to support liberalism and policies which seem destined to denigrate and marginalize themselves. It’s as if their success as a people is a weight upon their shoulders for which they must atone to others less fortunate and savvy.
After the Holocaust, the Jewish refrain became “never again!”
But when that moment comes, I predict that they will lose their nerve.
That’s only my opinion, and I would like to be proven wrong.
We shall see.
