cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

"threatened" ultra-orthodox jews spat at abc journo

I guess they like to make a spectacle of themselves. But it's RUDE TO NOTICE. - ed.

A few weeks ago the ABC's Middle East correspondent Anne Barker was caught up in a violent protest involving ultra-Orthodox Jewish men in Jerusalem.

As Anne tried to record the protest, against the opening of a municipal carpark on the Jewish Sabbath, the mob spat on her repeatedly.

She says if she had been a man it might have been less traumatic, but being a woman and being spat on by so many men was a very distressing experience.

The ultra-Orthodox Jews' protests, staged every weekend, have become a tourist attraction of sorts, and a form of entertainment for the rest of Jerusalem's population.

Their issue: the secular mayor's determination to open extra parking to cater for the increasing numbers of tourists and locals visiting the old city on weekends.

...

Yoel Weber, a rabbinical student, told her the ultra-Orthodox community feels a deep animosity towards any media it perceives does not understand it.

"The minute people feel that the media comes in and tries to cover our gatherings and they don't know who we are and basically they cover us as some kind of interesting species, we feel very annoyed," he said.

"We feel very endangered, very, very, very, very uncomfortable, with that situation."
