President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Times of Israel – Iran could have the capability to build a nuclear bomb by July, unnamed security sources said in a report published Friday.

The sources added that Israel’s leadership had been mollified by US President Barack Obama’s visit earlier this month, which saw Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seemingly cotton to Washington’s later timeline on when Iran could have a nuclear bomb.

    This apparent decision to postpone the military option for as long as a year has taken my breath away. Am I hearing just noise? Just last September to the United Nations General assembly on September 11 Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke very convincingly about the red line that Iran could not surpass in the enrichment of nuclear materials before the final steps leading to the final solution part two would deal Israel the final blow. Now after President Obama’s visit last week, somehow the pressure is off of Israel for another year until the military option may be exercised maybe. Does anyone really think that Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, will not listen to the inner voice that seems to be obsessively-compulsively running those thousands of centrifuges toward a second Holocaust with now more than six million Jews inhabiting Israel? We are still in the midst of the Passover holiday. It is erev Shabbat. One is supposed to be happy at this time during Moadim L’simchah, the days in the middle of the Passover week. I am not. I am worried, very worried. With sabre-rattling in North Korea to the West and sabre-rattling in Iran to the East one would need to be daft not to be apprehensive. Today I received a reminder from the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia of just how well the United States of America has treated its Jewish citizens in the warm, hospitable, congenial letter President George Washington wrote to the Newport Jewish Community in 1790. In part he stated that the United States government would afford to “the stock of Abraham” the a special guardianship as expressed in the following words: “. . . to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.” Somehow I feel persecuted and discriminated here in my safe, cozy home in Skokie, Illinois, when my brothers and sisters in Israel are on a quotidian basis threatened with their annihilation. It is their security on the line that makes me feel queasy. It is their future–more than one-half of world Jewry–at stake. And yet, it is my inner core, my identity, the identity of my children and the identity of my ancestors that cannot, should not, must not be taken for granted. We Jews are obliged to speak up in our own defense. We Jews must never forget our past. We hold the memories of such ineffable suffering from just seventy years ago in our hearts: such suffering must never again occur, not even with a scintilla of a chance, not one scintilla, not one!
