Brinkmanship: Netanyahu and Iran

Sir, - Susan Hattis Rolef sounds a dire warning about Netanyahu's 'brinkmanship' by stating "In the case of Israel the danger is that Iran will react irrationally, and then God save us all".

I think it is vital to point out the difference between Ms. Rolef who lectures on the Knesset, and the Prime Minister who bears the awesome responsibility for our security and welfare. Netanyahu unlike Ms. Rolef, must consider Iran's irrationality, and what then will be the dangers to Israel and to the entire western world when Iran possesses nuclear weapons.

We must indeed pray that God save us all!
