“London editor prays for nuclear attack on Israel,” by Jonny Paul for the Jerusalem Post (thanks to Jcom):
The editor of an Arabic daily newspaper published in London said in an interview on Lebanese television that he would dance in Trafalgar Square if Iranian missiles hit Israel.
Talking about Iran’s nuclear capability on ANB Lebanese television on June 27, Abd Al-Bari Atwan, editor-in-chief of Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper, said, “If the Iranian missiles strike Israel, by Allah, I will go to Trafalgar Square and dance with delight.”
In the interview, Bari Atwan was asked if he thought there is a process of dÃ©tente [vis-Ã -vis Iran] and an American-Iranian inclination to reach a deal on Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
“If there is a deal, it will be at the expense of the Arabs and if there is a war, it will also be at the expense of the Arabs,” he responded. “I’m sad to say that we have no backbone now. If Iran reaches a deal with the Americans, what will be the bottom line? That Iran will have a nuclear program, and even if it does not manufacture nuclear weapons in the next 5-10 years, it will do so later.”
