But the Western countries' outrage was so tepid in expressing consternation that countries don't publicly desire to see another wiped out from the map. In any case, despite the weak-knee response, far from scaring the Western countries, the outburst has galvanized them somewhat. A good illustration of sin making you stupid as Mark Shea reminds us.
I was particularly impressed by the million man rent a demonstration® Nothing like fake public support. The BBC correctly points out that most Iranians don't care about Israel as they have more immediate concerns like feeding their families. It's too bad that the the Euro-3, Britian, France and Germany, don't summon the courage to suspend the negotiations over its nuclear program, denounce the Iranian regime as a low-life and then confiscate the country's oil revenues. The last action would certainly focus the mullahs' attention to what really matters. No money, the nuclear program, no wiping out of Israel. Would be great to impose some diktat that the mullahs have to comply with.
