    a suicide pact.  Iran is developing nuclear weapons and has repeatedly threatened Israel--and given radical islamist ideology--wherein no non muslim state can exist in  a formerly muslim land--it's foolish for Israel to consider giving up it's nuclear weapons.

      Israel from joining the international protocols for tracking and accounting for fissile material?

      The NNPT doesn't require you to not have nuclear weapons. We signed and we have them. The Russians signed it and they have them. In fact, the only countries that have not signed it are North Korea, Pakistan, and Isreal. Good company, right?

      Israeal can submit to normal monitoring by the IAEA just like every other nuclear power that isn't a rogue state. Just like we do and we have far more enemies than Israel. In fact, if Iran gets a nuclear weapon America is much more likely to get hit before Israel is.

      Totally with you on the Iran thing. But that's not an excuse not to comply with international law.

      But Israel has refused to declare how many weapons it has or join a treaty. That's bullshit

      The civil rights, gay rights and women's movements, designed to allow others to reach for power previously grasped only by white men, have made a real difference, and the outlines of 21st century America have emerged. -- Paul West of LA Times
