    Israel isn't threating anyone. Iran is.

    OH damn those little facts just bursting the Moral Equivalence angle.

    Israel has nukes because it's neighbors keep trying to destroy the country.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    We can evaluate other nations' policies and work to get an agreement through diplomacy. No one says we are forcing them to do anything.

    Say it isn't so!!!!!!!!

    I thought Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria were just coming to a neighborhood party in June of 67.... you know, just neighbors stopping by to say hi.

    Same for 1973..... just buddies goofing around.

    So I'm out numbered 7 to 1 (world Arab population 2010 58 million..... Israel 8 million) and someone wants me to give up my weapons. This is a hard decision..... I'll get back to you in a century or so.

    Iran won't give up their efforts, but Arab states might. The real danger is that when Iran DOES get the bomb, many of the Arab states may be tempted to follow suit to protect themselves. If we can get them on board with this now, they may be less likely to do so. And they are unlikely to acquiesce to a nuke-free Middle East if we carve out an exception for Israel.

    Almost every other country in the world, including most US allies, has supported a nuke-free Middle East in previous UN resolutions. This isn't exactly a huge radical step.

    Has Morocco and Tunisia ever gone to war with Israel? How about the rest of the Arab countries? Does 1967 ring a bell?....... you can bet Israel still remembers.
