Double Nuclear standards once again by Israel

The US has claimed that the 'Arab states' pressing for a resolution to call on Israel to sign up to a Non-Proliferation treaty, are 'hampering the Middle East peace talks'. Totally amazing how the US can make such a statement and then go on about its fears of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. Meanwhile, Israel continues to claim the position of 'nuclear ambiguity', neither confirming or denying the widely acknowledged fact that it has nuclear weapons.

If its acceptable for Israel to have these weapons, or to claim 'nuclear ambiguity' then surely Iran is entitled to do the same. You cannot condemn one nation for having nuclear weapons and then enable another to flout these rules and do as they wish without criticism.

And lets be clear, out of Iran and Israel, the latter is the country that has occupied Palestinian territory since 1967, that subjects Palestinians to checkpoints and movement restrictions that means they require Israeli issued permits to go about their daily lives, clearly a nuclear armed Israel is equally a treat to middle east peace, but once again we see the US-Israeli double standards at play.

ibrows says:-
"clearly a nuclear armed Israel is equally a treat to middle east peace?"

What does this mean, he probably meant "threat" .

In reality, I am sure he knows that the only "threat" to Middle East peace is a Nuclear Armed Iran.

IF Israel has Nuclear weapons they are for DEFENSIVE purposes only.

When the Arabs obtain Nuclear weapons they will be for OFFENSIVE purposes.

What part of that phrase is hard to understand?

There is a big difference between the meaning of OFFENSIVE and DEFENSIVE.

Well I don't know about ibrows but I don't lose any sleep about Israel (maybe) having nukes, any more than I do about France or Britain for that matter having nukes.

Iran on the other hand worries me a lot.

Apparently for ibrows it's the other way round. Strange world he lives in...

These are totally subjective terms used by you to mean, its allowed for Israel, but no-one else in the middle east as Israel considers them all a threat.

your use 'offence' for the 'dangerous Iran' and 'defensive' for little old innocent Israel is nonsense. How can nuclear weapons be defensive. Unless you also consider the attack on Gaza in January 2009 where many innocent civilians were killed as 'defensive', or the forced expulsion of Palestinians from their homes in East Jerusalem as 'defensive', perhaps you also believe British troops involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan can be justified as 'defensive war'.

Israel does not threaten to destroy its neighbours like Iran. Iran is a menace to the world stability as they fuel and arm terrorist and make war to Israel by proxy in Lebanon and Gaza.
Iran must be stopped from making atomic bomb as they are likely to use it against Saudi Arabia, destroying USA access to oil and triggering an automatic World War III. Iran killed hundred of thousands of Iraqis and caused the death of one million Iranians. Iran is one of the worse human rights' violators on Earth.
All what ibrows likes!

ibrows bashes the Jews yet again. How dare they defend themselves - how much easier if they would just lay down and die, so ibrows can be satisfied.

Scum.

ibrows, perhaps you should look at the expulsion of Jews from East Jerusalem in 1948 (a real expulsion of thousands, as opposed to the eviction of a couple dozen squatters to which you refer).

Like i said, why is it that its considered 'defensive' for Israel to have nuclear weapons, but 'offensive, dangerous and wrong' for anyone else to have them. Because of these double standards.

I have still yet to see 'defensive nuclear weapons', the term is a complete joke. They are nuclear, they are dangerous and threatening, like everyone else's nuclear weapons

Let's assume that Israel does have nuclear weapons and has approx 200 deployable warheads. Where do you think these warheads are targeted. Let's assume that 20 of them are targeted towards its 'enemies'. Where are the rest pointing?

For the West (yes, that includes Israel you numpties) nuclear weapons are insurance against blackmail from the bad guys that have them.

We have them. France has them. The US has them. Israel has them.

As long as Russia, China, North Korea, etc has them we should keep them, and even when they don't we should still keep some to prevent them re-arming.

It's a shame they were ever invented, but that's life, and we did get nuclear power as a side-effect. I can't see them being "de-invented" any time soon either, so looks like they're here to stay. Just count ourselves lucky we're "in the club" and that we're on the side of the good guys who won't use them aggressively, and pray for world peace.

Incidentally the OP will probably be disappointed to hear that the IAEA has voted against an Arab initiative to subject Israel to inspections:

Which was probably the reason his was posting his propaganda here. How'd that work out?

zair - what the hell is that meant to mean? Yes, they're all pointing at London, because the Jews hate the West and are our true enemies.

How do you know where they're pointing? Pure conjecture - based on precisely no evidence. (I don't think nukes actually "point" anywhere).

But don't let that stop you in your Jew hatred. Enjoy, you sick tw@t.

It is possible that Israel doesn't actually have any nuclear weapons and this ambiguity is all a bluff. It would be a master stroke if true.

amber your accusations of 'jew hater' are becoming tiresome, please don't force me to flag your comments as offensive.

Whereas your obsessive lies about and demonisation of the Jewish state aren't offensive?

Your last post tried to allege that Israel is a threat to the UK and has nuclear weapons trained on us.

What a piece of garbage you are.

Derr amber, you are having delusions, I did not mention the UK specifically, although we may well have a few pointing this way as well as many other countries.

Sure zair, that's not what you mean t at all - except you haven't said what you did mean, and you haven't denied it either. In fact you post entertains the very thought - again, on no evidence whatsoever. You need to learn that your hatreds and prejudices do not constitute evidence.

What else are the Jews guilty of in your mind?

Sheer antisemitism - blame the Jews witout any evidence.
