Israeli Animation Lobbies Against Iran

Who says animation is just for kids? Recently the Israeli Ministry of Diaspora Affairs has released a disturbingly cutesy looking animated video campaigning against any coming agreement with Iran from Western powers, arguing the country is the chief exporter of international terrorism and unreliable when it comes to international commitments.

The 2:10 short was sent out to hundreds of Jewish leaders and organizations in an effort to raise awareness of the danger Iran will continue to pose, even with an agreement in place. According to The Arab Daily News, an accompanying letter from Minister of Jerusalem & Diaspora Affairs Naftalie Bennett says:

“Now is the time to speak up and take action to stop a bad deal from being signed that will allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon.” The video is hosted on the Ministry’s dedicated YouTube channel.

Inside Iran's Nuclear Weapons Plan

“Inside Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Plan”

    The film understates the full danger of Iran going nuclear. Iran’s bomb would not turn only the Middle East into a nuclear nightmare but the whole world.

    Bernard Lewis:

    There is one other point, which I think I will mention if you would allow me, and that is what I would call the apocalyptic aspect. In Islam, as in Judaism , as in Christianity, there is a scenario for the End of Time. When the final battle takes place between the forces of good and the forces of evil, of which for Christians, Jews and Muslims alike means between us and them, the us being differently defined and them being more or less the same. In the Muslim view, no, let me correct that, in the view of a certain section within the Iranian leadership, it is not by any means unanimous, that time is NOW. For a group called the Hujtieh whose main leader is Ahmadinejad, the apocalyptic time has come. The Mahdi, the Muslim Messiah is already here. The final battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil has already begun.

    That is extremely important for another, not immediately related reason. That is the question of Iran’s nuclear weapon. The Soviet Union had nuclear weapons right through the Cold War, but neither side used them because both sides were aware that if either one did the other would do the same and this would lead to mutual destruction – MAD as it was known at the time. Mutual assured destruction was the main deterrent preventing the use of nuclear weapons by the Soviets For most of the Iranian leadership MAD would work as a deterrent, but for Ahmadinejad and his group with their apocalyptic mindset mutually assured destruction is not a deterrent, it’s an inducement and they believe that the End of Time has come, the final battles are already beginning and the sooner the better, so that the good can go and enjoy the delights of paradise and the divine brothel in the sky and the wicked, that means all of us here, will go to eternal damnation.

    Why are Bernard Lewis’s views on MAD ignored?
