Bernard Lewis On The Mideast, Nukes & The End of Days

A recent Glenn Beck program, about which I wrote here, was brought to mind as I read the last paragraphs of this past weekend's Wall Street Journal interview with Bernard Lewis. Lewis is described as among the most authoritative Western scholars on the Arab world.

Writing about nuclear weapons in Islamist hands, the article stated,

"But the mullahs "are religious fanatics with an apocalyptic mindset. In Islam, as in Christianity and Judaism, there is an end-of-times scenario- and they think it's beginning or has already begun." So "mutually assured destruction is not a deterrent- it's an inducement." "

Scary stuff, isn't it? It completely reinforces Beck's contentions regarding what the Iranians see in the current turbulence in the Mideast.
