The Shakes Of Araby

The London Times Online is reporting the Saudis have gotten the shakes about the Iranian bomb, and have given permission to the Israelis to use Saudi Arabian airspace to fly to Iran whenever the Israelis think it appropriate to teach the uppity Persians a lesson. This means the Israelis will not have to ask Obama’s permission to fly over Iraq, a sovereign country, for they know Obama will order the US Air Force to shoot down any dirty Jew who dares to bomb his friends the Iranian terrorists. For the Saudis, this is a no-brainer. It is difficult for us, living in what we think of as a secular age, to believe people of differing religions cannot all get along, but such is the case. The Saudis are Sunni Muslim, and the Iranians are Shi’ite Muslims, and they do not particularly like each other. The Saudis, and all the Sunni Arab states, know that if the Shi’ite Persians get the bomb, the Persian Shi’ites rule the Middle East, which up to now has been a Sunni province. And since the Israelis are the only ones capable of stopping the Persians from getting nuclear weapons, the Saudis are perfectly willing to let the Israelis take care of it for them. Obama or no, Israel will strike when the Mossad says it’s time to go.



The Saudis say

That on the day

Israelis strike Iran

They might say hey

Or by the way

But never warn Teheran

The Saudis know

That when winds blow

From Persia to the west

It’s time to show

The Persian foe

Israeli planes are best

The Saudis think

That if they blink

A Persian nuke will land

And thereby sink

The Saudi kink

And all his merry band

So they’re content

To sit their tent

And watch Israelis fly

With their consent

To kill the gent

Who said the Jews must die



The 20% Solution

Iran announced that they were now a nuclear state, having successfully enriched uranium to 20%, the hardest part of the uranium enrichment process, with the enrichment to weapons grade 80% a walk in the park. You will recall that in 1945 the United States exploded two uranium bombs over Japan, one of which, Little Boy, was an 80% enriched uranium bomb (U-235, the other, Fat Man, being a plutonium U-239 bomb). The Middle East game is now afoot, and the question is whether Israel will strike before or after being hit.



The game’s afoot, cried Sherlock Holmes

Percentage they’re at twenty

Dear Watson now you will recall

When seven percent was plenty

I wager Moriarty is

Behind this foul adventure

What once was thought a toothless land

Has now a nuclear denture

Calm down old fellow, Watson sighed

LeStrade is on the caper

According to this morning’s Times

And every other paper

Ah, Mrs. Hudson, come right in

Our lunch, we thank you madam

Now Holmes we mustn’t rush right in

And think they have the atom

Quite right, old fellow, this I know

They haven’t reached conduction

Whereby the atoms transfer heat

A crude but sage deduction

But one day Holmes, they’ll have the bomb

And then what will we do

First lunch, old boy, is that the door

Ah, Bibi, right on cue




Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has just announced he will accept a Palestinian state so long as that state accepts the existence of Israel as the Jewish homeland. I believe this to be the last act of the drama. Bibi is playing the last peace card. If the Palestinians reject the offer, then Bibi has tried. And we all know the Palestinians have consistently chosen to do the wrong thing. The Middle East is about to go up. Newly re-elected Iranian President Ahmadinejad has repeatedly stated nothing could stop Iran from acquiring the bomb, and has scornfully rejected direct talks with the United States, challenging President Obama to debate him in the United Nations. Bibi Netanyahu has told President Obama he will defend his country by direct and unilateral action, despite the firm request by the President that he do nothing of the sort. The nuclear test just recently conducted by North Korea is suspected to be an Iranian bomb. Israel cannot wait much longer. Israeli military power is to the Middle East as American power is to the world at large. President Roosevelt once said the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. The only thing the Iranians, the Palestinians and the Middle East in general have to fear is Bibi.



Bibi is a Philly guy and so, my friends, am I

So I know how us Philly guys react to threats and such

When mullahs promise death to Jews will come from out the sky

A guy like Bibi smiles but man can only take so much

We know cannon fire grapeshot but they seldom fire BBs

Bibi fires cannon though, ‘cause that’s what Bibi does

If smoothbore 18 pounders give the mullahs heebie jeebies

Then you just wait till Bibi’s F-15s give them a buzz

Bibi isn’t waiting for the US or the UN

To give him full permission to defend his home and hearth

He’ll hit the mullahs first before they put his land in ruin

He’ll show them what it means to have your land become scorched earth

The calendar is winding down relentlessly toward summer

And while the Phils and Cards and Yanks are playing out the game

The Mossad guys and IAF are planning on a bummer

That after which downtown Teheran will never be the same

The guys in beards and turbans think they’ve got us by the shorties

They don’t see Armageddon though you’d really think they should

The IAF is coming and they’re not in old P-40s

The mullahs better get out while the Arma gettin’s good
