New Book Says
Zionists Ready
to Start WWIII

By Michael Collins Piper


.A disturbing new book, How the End Begins: The Road to a Nuclear World War III, makes it clear that a third world war, involving the likely use of nuclear weapons, may be instigated by Israel. Although the author, Jewish-American writer Ron Rosenbaum, believes there are a number of possible flashpoints for nuclear war, he places Israel among the foremost sources for such a conflagration.
He foresees a “preemptive” strike by Israel, using either nuclear or conventional weapons, against some other nation, probably Iran, in order to prevent that nation from acquiring nuclear arms. This could set off a chain reaction resulting in the further use of nuclear weapons in the ensuing crisis, potentially involving the United States, Russia, Pakistan, India — the list goes on.
In fact, Rosenbaum notes that in 2007 when Israel launched a military strike on a presumed Syrian nuclear installation, the London-based Spectator published a little-noticed article on Oct. 6 quoting a senior British official: “If people had known how close we came to World War III that day there’d have been mass panic . . . [and we] really would have been dealing with the bloody Book of Revelation and Armageddon.”
Rosenbaum writes:

. . . The fact that the hand of man finds itself recurrently, obsessively scripting fiery, self-immolating cataclysmic conclusions to the human saga may well be, at the very least, self-fulfilling prophecy. It may also say that deep down, we really are a species obsessed with its own self- destruction . . .

This idea of “self-destruction” being deeply rooted is particularly chilling since Israel’s nuclear policy — from the beginning — has been based on the Samson Option, immortalized by Jewish-American Pulitzer Prize winner and critic of Israel Seymour Hersh in his book by that title.
Like Samson of the Bible who brought the temple down upon himself and his enemies, the “Samson Option” is the concept that Israel would commit nuclear suicide and bring the rest of the world down with it if Israel’s leaders believed Israel was about to be conquered. This theme goes back to the much-heralded ancient Jewish legend of Masada — the purported “last stand” of Jewish warriors, who committed suicide in the face of a Roman onslaught.
Although Israeli scholars have proven the Masada story to be largely a myth, the importance of the legend to modern Israel is such that newly anointed Israeli military officers are sworn into their posts proclaiming: “Masada shall never fall again.”
According to Rosenbaum, the modern Israeli mindset is deeply rooted in the fear of a “second Holocaust.” This concept, writes Rosenbaum, “is a phrase that has become a potential motive, if not a trigger, for the outbreak of WorldWar III in the Middle East.” Rosenbaum says: “Israelis tell me that the use of the phrase ‘second Holocaust’ has become normalized there.”
Rosenbaum suggests the Israelis believe the international conference on the Holocaust,* held in Tehran in 2006 by the Iranian government which this writer attended, was an incitement to genocide, a deliberate call, in effect, for a “second Holocaust,” and therefore provides some rationale for Israel to launch a “preemptive” strike against Iran to prevent a “second Holocaust.” No such topic was discussed at the conference.
As for the morality of such an action, Rosenbaum cites Moshe Halbertal, a professor of ethics and the international law of war at both New York University Law School and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, describing Halbertal as “one of the most widely respected thinkers on the moral and ethical dilemmas of modern warfare,” who has authored a code of ethics for the Israeli Defense Forces.
Halbertal says that, in some cases, a preemptive nuclear strike can be “moral” although, in Rosenbaum’s assessment of his views, “retaliation after being struck by nuclear weapons cannot be.”
Yet, while Halbertal believes Israel could have the right to launch a preemptive strike against Iran, Halbertal, according to the author, seems to be saying, “It’s going to happen whether I like it or not.”
Rosenbaum concludes: “It’s almost a fatalistic admission that it will.”
Rosenbaum concludes:

All this will make it more likely that — sooner or later — Israel will unleash nuclear weapons [and] risk inaugurating World War III — to prevent what they perceive as an impending nuclear strike. Israel will not wait for the world to step in. They may not even wait to be sure their intelligence . . . is rock-solid certain. They can’t afford to take that chance. It is not something I advocate; it is something I foresee.

Rosenbaum — who calls himself a “secular, liberal, nonobservant, non-Zionist,American-born Jew with no immediate family members murdered in the Holocaust” — rightly fears nuclear war, whether instigated by Israel or otherwise. He closes his book with this plea:

. . . If you’re in a position to launch, whoever you are, now or in the future, if you’re in a position to send the targeting codes, if it’s up to you, whoever you are, my plea is “Nothing justifies following orders for genocide. Don’t send those codes, don’t twist those keys.”

Open Threats of Nuclear Apocalypse by Israel

Demonstrating the mindset of those who endorse Israel’s use of nuclear weapons, author Ron
Rosenbaum cites well-known American Jewish academic, Dr. David Perlmutter, who wrote a
shocking piece in the Los Angeles Times on April 7, 2002. In his essay, “Dark Thoughts and Quiet Desperation,” Perlmutter issued a threat in no uncertain terms:

What [is Israel] to do? I have other dreams as well — apocalyptic ones. I think: Israel has been building nuclear weapons for 30 years. The Jews understand what passive and powerless acceptance of doom has meant for them in the past and they have ensured against it. Masada was not an example to follow— it hurt the Romans not a whit, but Samson in Gaza? With an H-bomb?
What would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands of years of massacres but a nuclear winter? Or invite all those tut-tutting European statesmen and peace activists to join us in the ovens? For the first time in history, a people facing extermination while the world either cackles or looks away . . . have the power to destroy the world. The ultimate justice?

Perlmutter is not the only distinguished Jewish voice making such threats. Dr. Martin van Crevald of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel’s preeminent geopolitical and military thinker, made his own threat against the non-Jewish world in the January 2003 edition of the Dutch magazine Elsevier:

We [Israelis] possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets of our air force. Our armed forces are not the 30th strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capacity to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that this will happen before Israel goes under.
