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?

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu directed the defense, justice and foreign ministers at Thursday's cabinet meeting to present him with proposals, by next week, on how to fight what he called the delegitimization of Israel that goes beyond the Goldstone Commission Report.

"We have to now deal with this trend of demonizing Israel," Netanyahu said. "It is bigger than Goldstone."
...

Netanyahu again warned that moving the report out of Geneva would strike a major blow on three fronts:

• It would impair the international community's war against terrorism, "since it will afford total legitimization to terrorists who fire upon civilians and who hide behind civilians."

• It would significantly damage the stature of the UN, and "return it to its darkest days, in which it could make the most absurd decisions, which would empty it of all substance and significance."

• It would "strike a fatal blow to the peace process, because Israel will no longer be able to take additional steps and take risks for peace if its right to self-defense is denied."
