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?

nobody should be surprised at this "development" in the Middle East "peace" "process"

1. Obama team loses face on Israeli settlements

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration must devise a fresh plan to restart Arab-Israeli peace talks after losing face with a backtracking on its demands for a full Jewish settlement freeze, analysts said Monday.

President Barack Obama's team has disappointed many Palestinians and other Arabs who long for it to fulfill both its initial tough stance on settlements and a broader pledge to improve ties with the Muslim world, they said.
...
Obama, in failing to deliver on settlements, seems to have reinforced the Arab narrative that the "Americans are all in the pockets of the Zionists," according to Patrick Clawson of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

"It's not going to be easy, but we need to find some way to change topic," Clawson said when asked about how the US can revive talks.



OH YES! Changing the topic always does the trick, doesn't it? That's what THIS is for: http://www.newsweek.com/media/70/tip_report.pdf - ed.

2. US about faces on Israeli-Palestinian "peace" approach

JERUSALEM, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- The Israeli and Palestinian publics are now well aware that there is a new reality on the ground: the Americans believe it is time for the Palestinians to show good faith and come to the negotiating table. This became unmistakably clear during the latest visit by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the region over the weekend.

Washington is placing less pressure on the Israelis over the much-hyped settlements issue, while expecting the Palestinians to make the next move. For the best part of the year, the U.S. government under President Barack Obama had sided with the Palestinians in calling for a total freeze of Israel's settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Analysts are now trying to understand what brought about the Obama administration's U-turn, and also being examined is the role the media is playing in the labyrinthine peace process.

3. Israel's unspoken nuclear leverage - analysis

excerpt:

Would Israel actually go so far as to nuke Iran? Izziehuggers say no. Lovers of Israel cherish their blinders and work hard to keep them functioning. Here are some facts about Zionism and Israel stripped of the inspiring Exodus soundtrack.

Israel is based on ideological and religious fanaticism which is backed by radical Judaism. Islamic radicals have nothing on Jewish radicals. The Jews were the first to bring modern terror tactics to the Mideast. They started in Palestine in the 1920s with terrorist bombings and assassinations and graduated to kidnapping people and publicly executing them to the cheers of their fellow Zionists.

...

I observe and report. I do not explain. Many true things cannot be explained logically. Facts remain facts explained or not.

If you believe the ideological, religious fanatics in Iran would nuke Israel then you must also believe the ideological religious fanatics in Israel would do the same.
