ElBaradei’s talking about Israeli nukes

on 110 Comments

One of the talking points for the lobby is that Arab nations are fearful of Iranian nukes. And they would be. Who wants an arms race in your neighborhood? Mohamed ElBaradei of the IAEA is an Egyptian, and one theory of the ’67 War is that it began because Nasser was enraged that Israel was getting nukes, and took action, with disastrous consequences. From Xinhua:

Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohamed ElBaradei said Sunday that "Israel is number one threat to Middle East" with its nuclear arms, the official IRNA news agency reported.

At a joint press conference with Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization chief Ali Akbar Salehi in Tehran, ElBaradei brought Israel under spotlight and said that the Tel Aviv regime has refused to allow inspections into its nuclear installations for 30years, the report said.

"Israel is the number one threat to the Middle East given the nuclear arms it possesses," ElBaradei was quoted as saying
