Israel: Iran an Existential Threat

By on 8.1.08 | 1:56PM

From Bloomberg:

Iran is on a path toward a "major breakthrough" in its nuclear program that is "unacceptable," Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Shaul Mofaz told a Washington audience today.

"It is an existential threat," Mofaz said at a forum on Iran at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. "We have to make sure we are prepared for every option."

In preparation to deal with the existential threat, Israel should sponsor a series of literary workshops focusing on existentialist themes in Kafka, Hesse, and Dostoevsky. Then we can turn to the nihilist threat from North Korea, the platonic realist threat of China, and the unspoken but all-too-familiar pythagoreanist threat from Moscow.
