I really don’t like what is going on in the Middle East.  It seems that Israel feels threatened by Iran’s possible ability to produce an atomic weapon. Israel feels threatened that she will somehow lose control of its future because Iran is so close to Israel.

How would you feel if you lived in Israel?  Would you feel threatened?  I think the answer depends on your level of knowledge about Iran.  The real problem, it seems to me, is trying to figure out the “intentions” of the other side.  What is in the heart of Iran’s government?  What do they intend to do?

The U.S. Government, it seems, takes nuclear capabilities seriously.  But so does Israel.  Threat can provoke anger and lead one nation to become violent with another nation.

So what is the solution to this crisis?  There is now talk of a preemptive strike against Iran.  There are concerns that Iran could cripple movement of ships in the Strait of Hormuz.

I hope there is a diplomatic and non-violent solution to this issue.
