    This is ridiculous; it was 43 years ago. The only Arab factions that pose even a SLIGHT threat to Israel are Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and Hamas in Gaza. And none of them are anywhere close to having nukes...yet. Israel is under no threat whatsoever from the larger Arab states like Egypt or Saudi Arabia, and certainly not from countries located over a thousand miles away in North Africa.

    The threat to Israel (and everyone else in the region) will increase if Arab states feel that they need to get nukes to defend themselves. That might be less likely to occur if we can get them on board with the idea of a nuke-free Middle East now. Most of them like the idea, but they understandably don't want an exception for Israel.

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

    Israel has nukes because it's neighbors keep trying to destroy the country.
    someone doesn't keep up with the news, or simply chooses to ignore the repeated acts of aggression initiated by israel ... these "pre-emptive" attacks


    in contrast, for almost 200 years, iran has NOT perpetrated an act of aggression on any other country

    Got it, you're one of those, no need to pursue this any further. Israel is a the aggressor in your eyes.
    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.
