    if US attacks iran, it’l will use nukes, i predict. ordinary invasion wld not do against iran since thousands upun thousands of amers may die there.
    in add’n, US troops r dispersed all over the globe.
    using nukes wld, of course, alarm much of the world. to what point?
    well, most likely, russia, china,india, and pakistan wld be on high alert; probably send nuclearly-armed subs to US shores.
    if this scenario wld be even partially correct, US may see it that way and desist from nuking iran. thnx

    Joshua, you handled yourself admirably well under barrage of Katzbara. Will there be a YouTube version?

    Even tho the program has ended, I reckon that Mr Katz is still talking………There were four people involved in that discussion, and I don’t think he convinced any of them, including himself!

    These Zionist fanatics would be ridiculous if they didn’t have the power to hurt so many people and often do. Recently I’ve watched many Al Jazeera English programs and the Israeli/Zionist representative always comes across as irrational mostly because Zionism requires only a belief that it is okay and from there they’ve built a whole system of denouncing people and playing the victim. It’s actually sometimes very fascinating to try to follow. They don’t come across as authoritative because on these kinds of shows, the networks AREN’T already on Israel’s side and the hosts often demand that they actually back up their absurd claims with something other than reflexively calling everyone else an anti-Semite and reversing the time line so that either God promised them the land or else Palestinians started it all. One about the “Peace House” featured an American who moved to Israel some 5 years ago telling a native-born Palestinian that Muslims can live in any of the 33 Muslim countries. It’s the same logic that allows Americans of European decent (whites) to call everybody else foreigners when white people colonized the U.S. and just rewrote the narrative.

    I feel that if US or Israel attack on Iran is the start of III world war, I do not say who wins. If any one to see the survival it would be 25% of the worlds’ population. As well due the the nuclear war most living things die,
    few survive. Dropping a nuke on Iran will not Iran suffers’ even UAE Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, and Yemen would get immediate effect. Also Pakistan and Russia too. Therefore eventually Russia will retaliate to US and Israel.
    I feel that now it time to accept Nuclear Iran. It is also US problem to make countries stand for their protection. I feel that 9/11 was and artificial event brought by US CIA and Pentagon. It is not terror attack by any other country. Since US & Israel want to expand the empire they did it and today we all are in economic recession and crises.
    In spite of all event the Muslim are targeted and today the world face trouble ad Muslim stand for the right and fight. Muslims are not scared to death. It is of course a challenge for Muslims to defeat US and Israel.
    UN cannot resolve any issue now like permanent 5 + Germany cannot stand on one course. So I feel it is going to end with war soon.

    Mohamad, you claim Muslims don’t fear death but do they respect life?

    Naah, only americans respect life that’s why it’s important for them to go around bombing countless millions of people everywhere because they respect life..
