Landmark Deal Reached to Curb Iran's Nuclear Program

I believe it is a great step forward to make Middle East somewhat safe. Only Israel is opposed to this deal which is baffling. Israel, a very small country, has over 200 nuclear war heads according to the former President of the U.S Jimmy Carter. Why Israel can have those horribly deadly weapons and not other countries in the Middle East? I believe none should have nuclear weapons.

I also believe that no one in the world should have nuclear weapons. Countries like Russia and U.S. have so many nuclear weapons that each of these two countries can destroy life on the planet earth many times over.

  1. One of the great hypocrisies of our time, LD, is the special blindness accorded Israel when it comes to their nuclear weapons and their gross violation of Palestinian rights that constitute war crimes. I have always contended, despite the push from the right to suggest otherwise, that one can rightfully hold Israel to the same standards as other countries without being anti-Semitic.

  2. Lorne, you're quite right that Israel should be held to the same standards as other countries. Anti-Semitic is indeed wrong. But the problem is that if you disagree with Israel's policies and butchering of its neighbours especially Gaza, West Bank and Lebanon then you're invariably labelled as Anti-Semitic.
