“Iran Might Attack Us? Yiyeh B’sedeeeeer!”

According to everyone who knows anything, Israel either will or won’t attack Iran in 2012 (are there more options I’m overlooking?)  It has the potential to be the key international event this year and even though people aren’t necessarily talking about it around the Shabbat table, everyone knows it’s ON the table.  This issue has been increasingly in the news as of late and it’s probably only going to increase.  Do you know the basics?

Check out the satiric “The Idiot’s Guide to Bombing Iran” featured in Israel’s and the Jewish world’s newest news source, the Times of Israel which just launched this week.

An excerpt:

Since the early 2000s, Israel has been trying to direct the world’s attention away from Facebook and towards the looming threat of Iran. With China and Russia slow to agree to economic sanctions, the most notable responses to Iran’s nuclear ambitions have been covert operations, believed to have been carried out by Israel. In 2010, the computer worm Stuxnet knocked out roughly 20% of Iranian centrifuges, delaying their enrichment activities. The Iranian gay community was eliminated as a possible suspect when Ahmadinejad remembered that his country had none. The Iranians refused to give the Israelis credit for penetrating their security system, instead acknowledging that their network would have been secure had they simply upgraded from Windows 95.

You can read the full article here.  Just remember:  here in Israel, whatever happens, it will be ok (yiyeh b’seder).  If I have to go to a bomb shelter however, I’m going to CK’s.  Why do I know that guy will turn it into a party?
