In his latest New York Times op-ed entitled "To Have Paris, Defeat ISIS," Roger ("Iran is not totalitarian") Cohen would have us know:
"The only adequate measure, after the killing of at least 129 people in Paris, is military, and the only objective commensurate with the ongoing threat is the crushing of ISIS and the elimination of its stronghold in Syria and Iraq. The barbaric terrorists exalting on social media at the blood they have spilled cannot be allowed any longer to control territory on which they are able to organize, finance, direct and plan their savagery."
A question for Cohen, who has long advocated détente with Iran: You call for the destruction of the Islamic State, yet what is so different between the horrifying acts of terrorism experienced in Paris yesterday and Iran's bombing of the Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires on July 18, 1994, which killed 87 people and wounded over 100 people?
Why shouldn't the bombing of the Jewish Community Center by Iran have evoked similar outrage? Oh, that's right, it was the bombing of a Jewish Community Center, and Jews apparently don't matter.
The Islamic State versus Iran? In fact, one is Sunni and the other is Shiite, but they are equally barbaric.
