(Community Matters) In the New Yorker
the political philosopher Avishai Margalit told me that Netanyahu was a kind of “mythomaniac,” a politician utterly absorbed and guided by his sense of heroic mission, and dismissive of the opinions and analyses of even his closest advisers.
I don’t one iota believe Netanyahu has better intelligence than the US. The US wouldn’t let Iran develop a weapon. Nevertheless, if Netanyahu believes the threat is imminent, then he/they should strike – even as Pres Obama was signing the US-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act in July he and others reaffirmed Israel’s right (its responsibility) to make its own decisions and take its own actions.
