The nuclear threat has terrified me since, at the age of 11, I watched the horrific BBC film Threads, which depicts a nuclear attack on Sheffield of all places. It was so grim. But if the ‘cold war’ was scary, then the nuclear scene of the 21st century is potentially terrifying.

Here is a reflection on the nuclear threat that offers a positive perspective. It was written by my hero, the Chabad Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson:

Even from the most horrible things we can learn great lessons. From the threat of nuclear destruction we can learn several things about how to rearrange the world for the good:

You don’t need great armies – it can take a single act.

You don’t have to understand how it works – just what button to press.

It doesn’t matter who does it – as long as he presses the right button.

From the smallest things come the biggest changes.

Tremendous power has always been there – it needs only be revealed.

…and since all this has been discovered in our generation, it must be of particular relevance to us.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend. I’ll be giving another speech at Eton College on Sunday. I’m looking forward to that.

Update: here’s a photo of me at Eton this morning.

    PS: I heartily recommend the book I found that quote in. It’s called Bringing Heaven Down To Earth: Meditations from the Wisdom of the Rebbe Menachem M. Schneerson. The book was lovingly compiled by Tzvi Freeman.

    Speaking of the Rebbe, I loved this recent perspective on him from the Pop Chasid blog: http://popchassid.com/advantage-knowing-rebbe/

    Another interesting thought from the rebbe

    Good luck at Eton, Chas.

    Duvidl’s perspective is that of two OEs currently in power, the Prime Minister has incorrectly described Gaza as “a prison camp” to please Erdogan of Turkey. In contrast, the Mayor of London has been the only politician of any party to attend and participate in an independent memorial eceremony prior to the Olympics for the fallen Israelis of the Munich Olympics massacre, which was ignored by the head of the IOC.

    That is why Boris is so popular with Duvidl, who sincerely hopes your talks will move more Etonians in his direction regarding attitudes to Israel. But then it looks like the country is rooting for Boris to become the next PM anyway.
