Attack Iran's Moral Foundations, Peres Tells CNN
Arutz Sheva ^ | 15/11/11 | Tzvi ben Gedalyahu

Posted on 11/15/2011 3:57:38 AM PST by Eleutheria5

Iran is morally corrupt and spoiled, President Shimon Peres told CNN's Piers Morgan Monday night. “An attack on its moral foundations is needed.”

"They are the only country that threatens to destroy another country openly,” and an attack on the Islamic Republic’s foundations is needed "because Iran is a spoiled country. It is morally corrupt."

Concerning sanctions and promises to stop Iran from becoming a nuclear power, he said, "We expect that the leaders that make a promise will fulfill it."

If military action is needed, President Peres said that he hopes Israel will not be alone in attacking Iran’s nuclear sites, but added, "I would rather see tighter economic sanctions [and] closer political pressure. Israel will first of all see what the world is doing.”

Ah, Shimon. The world looks so much better from orbit. I'm reminded of Santa Claus on Mars, when the children and Santa fight off the evil villains with an army of toys. Iran believes that it is morally perfect BECAUSE they want to destroy our little country and everyone in it. Attacking its moral foundation would require discrediting either the Koran or their view of it, and since they can't tell the difference between the two, and won't consider the notion that Muhammed was a nut job and a fraud, you're wasting your time. Economic sanction? Political pressure? Hah. The only things Iran doesn't make itself are cars and computers. It has its own political circle among nations, among them OPEC, the Council of Islamic States, and couldn't care less about the UN. A pity Israel doesn't follow its example on that score.

Attacking their moral foundation might have been effective if it had started a decade or so ago but now its too late. We should have exploited the westernized youth instead of keeping silent when they rose against their leadership.

But, wait! The thought just occurred to Shimon Perez! His grandchildren came storming into his study and woke him, and then—he thought of this! Then he started making phone calls and bothering people. Somebody ought to lay the little brats across their knee and give them a good hiding.

Peres has been stuck on stupid since he entrenched himself with the Israeli left. Like Olmert he believes a divided Israel will bring “peace”. It will ... for 1,260 days.

Attackc Iran's Moral Foundation

Yeah, sure. Remember how well that worked against the Nazis. There they were all set to bust out of the bunkers, retake Berlin and reconquer Europe, when we undermined their moral foundations. Hitler, seeing the errors of his ways, killed himself and the other Nazis decided that they really didn't want to conquer the world after all.

Simple minded me, I thought we would have to clean out the Persian blight, root and branch.

So that’s how the allies beat them. And Romel’s defeat at Allemain? His failure to invade Palestine, due to sabotage of the gasoline supply? Or was it moral foundation again? Japan? Nuclear bombs, shmooklear bombs, Nagasasaki, shmagasaki. Moral fiber!

Maybe Babe Ruth isn’t so bad after all.

“Spoiled?” “Morally corrupt?”

Maybe so but those things are the SYMPTONS, not the DISEASE.

The disease is ISLAM, which Iran’s leadership takes more seriously than the other Muslim countries, thus Iran presents greater dangers than the other Muslim and Arab countries.
