Political correctness works only while everyone accepts its rules.

The people will accept the King’s fictions only while the King governs well.
For more than ten years the West has worried what might happen in Muslim scientists privately decided to built a WMD to attack the Jews. What they really should get worked up about is what happens if Jewish scientists decide to do the same thing. Civilization depends on the King to provide justice in lieu of mob action. When the King goofs off or neglects to secure the realm, then at some point it’s every man for himself. And then there’ll be nothing to laugh at any more.

Your Say

My great hope is that if it comes to that kind of thing, the Jews will do it first, once and for all. Given a small amount of time the world would recover from the absence of any and all muslims but it will never recover from the absence of Israel.

I've reached the sad conclusion Israel will never solve it's Muslim problem. They will fight delaying actions until the Muslims defeat them.

Israel OUGHT to turn as much of the Middle East to rubble as necessary to end attacks by the Jihadis. To this day they try mightily to find exactly the responsible person and take him out. Restraint brings about future Jihadi attacks and the Muslim population is emboldened to support the jihadis up to the point they risk a reaction by the IDF. The Jihadis are fighting without rules and the locals know it's more dangerous to disappoint the jihadis than the Israelis.

Israel has a few hundred nuclear missiles. It was trying to convince the US to stop Iran. It's likely planning to take out the key assets in the Iran nuke program. The problem isn't the nukes in Iran, but the people and govt in Iran that would rather start a nuke war with Israel than stop its nuke program. That's not just the view of the Mullahs, but the majority of the Iranian. If 70 million Iranians really opposed the Mullahs the mullahs would be gone. The 70 million Iranians are hoping the Mullahs will leave them alone. Like people the world over they decide to be bystanders in their own country and hope the consequences only harm others.

Fernandez gets to the nub of it with this one:

what happens if people make the context shift from focusing on the stage to realizing they’re in the theater(?)

Put another way, imagine fifteen minutes of a world without television. Imagine the great cracking groan of millions of minds coming awake all at once. Picture if you can the entire Baby Boom Bunch suddenly confronted with the image of its lockstep idiocy in the world's greatest mirror.

Jeez Rob. That's cold. We shall see.
