I get the feeling…

…reading stories like this one and this one, that sooner or later the Israelis are going to have to say “the hell with this” and do whatever whatever they have to do to assure their security. It’s a laudable goal, to be sure, but “nuclear nonproliferation” is still just as big of a joke as is “gun control.” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said more than once that he would like to see Israel wiped off the map, and I don’t see how this sort of security theater writ large is going to change that.
Of course, I have no doubt that the Israelis are keeping a sharp eye on this whole thing and making contingency plans behind the scenes. I’d be surprised if they had not been doing such long before the last elections here in the United States. And it’s not as if they haven’t taken certain unpopular measures to assure their security before…
