The Islamist Bomb

Arnaud de Borchgrave contends that for almost the last 20 years Iran telegraphed its nuclear ambitions with all the subtlety of a whack upside the head with a silk pillowcase---filled with hammers. He sees little hope in dissuading the mullahs from going nuclear and pointing the missles westward toward the Mediterranean Coast. Prime cut:

Having a nuclear weapon is fundamental to Islamist belief. No odes to world peace if they do this, or dirges to world catastrophe if they do that, will deflect the mullahs' core belief as dictated by Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

It's worth the read.
