(RNS) Why should the Jews, of all minority groups in our culture, be begrudged the emotional space in the public arena to speak of their legitimate fears?

    Iran is making out like bandits. They got to rattle their sabres impotently, create an international incident, and make threats despite lacking the ability to make good on them.

    In exchange for a deal, they got to unload tons sub-par grade uranium for exorbitant prices (which would have required billions more dollars and a ton of time to turn into weapons grade material) and essentially sold off most of their already marginally effective subterfuges. Their ability to make an atomic bomb after this deal is practically nil. Its a fairly good agreement if the goal is preventing Iranian nuclear weapon development.

    Make no mistake, Iran’s ability to produce atomic weapons was way overblown from the outset. Now we compensated them on making empty threats because of remote fears.

    Iran’s presidents were good salesmen for inferior atomic fuels and equipment. Using empty rhetoric about wiping Israel off the map in order to add urgency to what amounts to a swindle.

    As a Catholic Christian, I absolutely agree with you.
