A just released survey by the American Jewish Committee reports that for the first time ever, a majority of American Jews support using military force to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Are you part of that 56% and if so, why. Are you part of the 36% opposed to such an operation? How come?
Rather than take a stand on this one just yet, I am curious to hear what you have to say about this hot topic, whether you are Jewish or not. In light of President Obama’s United Nations speech last week and the unanimous resolution of the Security Council about ending all nuclear proliferation, this topic is going to shape American and global military policy in powerful ways. So what do you think we should do?
I will post a Newsweek/Washington Post On Faith article I wrote yesterday, a little later. It deals with the fact that the entire issue of nuclear arms is more complicated than simply getting rid of all nuclear weapons, or simply identifying “good guys” and “bad guys”. But until then, I want to know who thinks that this is something over which we should go to war.
