Ehud Ya’ari, top Israeli expert on the Arab world, just said something interesting on Israel TV’s Channel Two news. He pointed out that Saddam has not made one attempt to threaten Israel.
Of course! Why didn’t I notice this before? In 1990 and 1991 right up to the end of the ultimatum and the beginning of the offensive, Iraq threatened Israel over and over again. This time - not a peep.
While we're on the subject, here's an update on Saddam's dear son Uday.
