Who is Afraid of the Iranian Bomb? – By Uri Avnery

Who is Afraid of the Iranian Bomb? – By Uri Avnery

I HATE self-evident truths.

Ideals may be self-evident. Political statements are not. When I hear about a self-evident political truth, I immediately doubt it. The most self-evident political truth at this moment concerns Iran. Iran is our deadly enemy. Iran wants to destroy us. We must destroy its capabilities first.

We should have ordered the Americans long ago to bomb Iran to smithereens. In the unlikely event that they would have disobeyed us, we should have nuclear-bombed Iran ourselves, before their crazy fanatical leaders have the opportunity to annihilate us first.

All these are self-evident truths. To my mind, all of them are utter nonsense.    Continue reading

Why 1968?

1968 was a truly momentous year in the history of global social movements, a year of global revolution.

It comprised the primary year of the shift from the Civil Rights to Black Power movements and Black Consciousness; the emergence of Black and Ethnic Studies programs; the “Rodney Riots” in Jamaica; innumerable assassinations, uprisings and student movements globally; open social conflicts as seen in the Democratic National Convention in Chicago that year; the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.; the Poor People’s Campaign, and the Olympics Black Power salute which followed thereafter.      Continue reading
