[is Israel] to do? I have other dreams as well— apocalyptic
ones. I think: Israel has been building nuclear weapons for thirty
years. The Jews understand what passive and powerless acceptance
of doom has meant for them in the past and they have ensured against
it. Masada was not an example to follow—it hurt the Romans
not a whit, but Samson in Gaza? With an H-bomb?
would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands
of years of massacres but a Nuclear Winter? Or invite all those
tut-tutting European statesmen and peace activists to join us in
the first time in history, a people facing extermination while the
world either cackles or looks away . . . have the power to destroy
the world. The ultimate justice?

[Israelis] possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and
can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome.
Most European capitals are targets of our air force. Our armed forces
are not the 30th strongest in the world, but rather the second or
third. We have the capacity to take the world down with us. And
I can assure you that this will happen before Israel goes under.

telling the story of “The Golem.” Here Rabbi Loew (right)
and a henchman cling to the monster the rabbi created. The tale
of The Golem—memorialized in print, on the stage and in film
over the centuries— is (perhaps unwittingly) a warning to
our world of the dangers of religious fanaticism. The modern-day
nuclear Golem in Israel stands at the center of world unrest today.
