A continuing refrain that we hear, most recently from Senator Joe Biden, is that Israel cannot respond to any attacks that Iraq aims at it as this will unravel any Arab support for a war against Iraq. I'm astonished each time I hear this that, whether or not true, anyone would actually speak such an offensive statement. It basically means that the arab nations are so immoral and hate-filled that if Iraq immorally involves Israel in any war, that the arab nations will abandon the attack on Iraq no matter how well justified. Any sane nation would deny that they were so immoral as to so act. But not only do the arab nations not deny it, they reinforce this perception.
