In 2003, we were a lonely voice among Jewish conservatives against the American adventure in Iraq. Anyone could see that the invasion was bound to produce criminal anarchy, foment Shia-Sunni-Kurdish unrest, and create terrorist nests in that Frankenstein of a state.
US senators authorized the war without even bothering to read the CIA brief; only seven out of the 100 authorized officials read the report which, we now know, confirmed our views.
In six years, the death toll exceeded a million Iraqis. As terrorist operations gain momentum, the toll will exceed the 1.5 million deaths the United States caused in Afghanistan when it sponsored the mujahedeen in the 1980s.
Nevertheless, the US Administration presumes to lecture Israel on our morality toward our Arab enemies.
