A sea of black glass

It may come down to one of two regrettable decisions; use a nuclear weapon to assure total destruction, or try non-nuclear weapons and hope for enough destruction to set back by at least a few years Iran's nuclear program. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (UAE) believes Iran will not build or use a nuke, saying Israel would reduce Iranian cities to nothing if Ahmadinejad decided to launch an attack. He is right, but more importantly one must ask; with Shia apocalypse theology driving Ahmadinejad, how sure is it that Iran will not build or use a weapon they believe will usher in the next caliphate? They keep uttering, over and over again that the destruction of Israel is of paramount importance, what indication is there they will back off from the precipice and suddenly live in peace with the "people of the book?"

The Sheikh does not want us to think about the chance Iran will launch a nuclear weapon against Israel.

Sorry, al-Maktoum, thinking is what we do here.

Dubai Sheikh: If Iran Attacks, Israel Will Wipe It Off the Map

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has threatened to wipe Israel off the map but will discover his own cities may disappear if he attacks Israel, the United Arab Emirate’s prime minister told CNN.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum also said he doubts that Iran would use a nuclear bomb or even build one.

"What can Iran do with a nuclear weapon?" he asked rhetorically. "For example, will they hit Israel? How many Palestinians will die? And you think if Iran hits Israel, their cities will be safe? They will be gone the next day."

The UAE, like Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states, are dead-set against Shi’ite Muslim Iran’s bold desire to head an Islamic empire, based on Sharia law, in every Muslim country.

Yet when I say the same thing, I am called a Isamophobe.

Iran would have absolutely no trouble wiping Israel off the face of the earth, and they wouldn't give a 2nd thought to taking a million or so Gazan's (or Iranians) with them.
In Islam, it is the Ummah (Islamic civilization) that is of supreme importance, not the individual Muslim.
That's what makes Iran (and all Muslim countries) so very dangerous. They are willing to annihilate their own citizens in order to achieve their ultimate goal: the destruction of Israel (and the United States).
