Michael Coren repents

A little over a year ago I wrote a column in this newspaper that caused a major controversy. I advocated a tactical nuclear strike on Iran's nuclear facilities. I did not, of course, call for all-out nuclear war, but I did support what would be a massively destructive campaign against the Tehran regime's military ambitions.

Thirteen months later I feel obliged to say that I wish I had never written such an article. I was wrong. And I have waited this long because I did not want the bullies, the thugs, the racists and the hypocrites to think that they had forced my hand.

I changed my mind after a great deal of thought and prayer. I realized that I had lashed out because of the obscene words and actions of Iran's leaders and apologists - against the Holocaust denial, the calls for the destruction of another country, the sponsoring of terrorism and lust for power and dominance at any cost.

I really appreciate the fact that he's admitted his mistake. Not everyone would have the guts to do that.I really appreciate the fact that he's a pro-lifer, and he's drawn on his culture of life views to make him see the error of his ways.

God Bless You, Michael Coren.
