Pakistan has nuclear weapons and Iran is close so Israel like the USA needs to keep ahead.Catastrophe over the next decades are certain so defensive and offensive second strike capacity is a must.
2. The presumed existence of Israel's
nuclear arms is the only reason Israel still exists. Especially against the background of the current US president's personal animosity against Israel and the general collapse of the US diplomatic leverage. No wonder the prospect of Israeli nukes it's the thorn in the side of all "peace-loving" arab entities in the middle east.
3. Sad world of the 21st Century
The Arabs, having embarked many a time on a war to destroy Israel now want to strip Israel of the right to defend itself
Iran, racing to a Nuke, and professes it wants to wipe Israel off the map
The UN is now a Joke.
Obama a Jester
4. Be constructive: Lay down your arms
"The world has to know that Israel is not playing a constructive role, that Israel has a (nuclear) capability," Ramzy told Reuters.
5. Arabs, why don't you accept Israel's RIGHT to be, to exist
as the sovereign nation-state of the Jewish people on ANY parcel of land that is the Jewish people's ancestral homeland?
Ask yourself this question in a form of introspection, and add to it the question: why have we been acting since 1920 through the all means at our disposal to see to it that Israel doesn't come about, and when it did, to bring about its demise?
Honest answers to these questions ought to give you an idea of why we, Jews, try to defend ourselves through all means that we can, but DEFEND, not ATTACK!!!!!

6. All nukes & WMD must be surrendered to Israel before Peace!
Son of Cyrus ,
7. We should've been used to this, also should've internalized
the fact that the "World" will keep on singling us out, mainly for slaughter, so I would think, that the People of The Book, in our Eternal Wisdom had produced a fitting response by now. Whom am I kidding?!
8. Israel will never bee the one to introduce nuclear weapons
to the region, and it hasn't done so for more than six decades!
The Jews, Sirs, are not the problem. You have problems and you try, as has been done throughout history, to shift the blame over to the Jews.
Solve your internal predicaments peacefully, and let the Jews be. This, and only this will bring a state of peaceful coexistence.
It is up to you, Muslim-Arabs!!

9. The current genocide in Syria the ongoing massacres ....
... in the rest of the Arab world and the countinuous threat of Iran and other muslim dictatorships is more than enough reason for Israel to never accept any critic on the part of any Arab country concerning it's arsenal of weapons, be it nuclear or other. Let alone from the totally biased and sterile UN.
'World has to know that Israel is not playing a constructive role, that it has nuclear capability,'
Translation: World has to know that Israel is not playing by our rules and that if we try to wipe Israel off the map, they will burn our eyeballs out of our heads.
11. Nuclear arms
is the only reason Israel still exists. The same can de said about North Korea. What a paradox.
12. Hegemony of Peace or Force
The fact still remains that at some point in the future nuclear weapons will not exist in the Holy Land, Middle East or Planet Earth. Such shiny, big toys for the boys will be seen as useless by generations in decades to come. Will the children of 2025 grow up in a world free of the most destructive of all weapons ever created ?
The Holy Land as a true platform of peace, stability, order and benevolence or something else ?
Hegemony by peace or force ?
As all good Jews and readers of the Bible know, many moons ago Isaiah made a prophecy about nations, swords and plowshares. In a modern sense this means that a literal Ganeden down here on terra firma will not witness the presence of nuclear, chemical or biological weapons on the landscape. i.e. The world will be totally, 100%, no exceptions for any nation, no further correspondence will be entered into, free of these weapons of mass destruction. Now looking back from 2050 what moves were made to make this divinely mandated scenario possible ? It really is all in the sequencing.
There is a realistic way for all weapons of mass destruction to be eliminated from the realm of human affairs by 2025. (The current Iran-West imbroglio and Syrian situation is connected to this dynamic.) This process would not endanger the State of Israel's security. According to FAS there are approx. 19,000 nukes worldwide. The nuclear question is a two faced genie. Nuclear power is a boon for humankind. Nuclear weapons need to be phased out over the next thirteen years. They are a by-product of certain past geo-political moves. Like nine poker players all with various stacks returning dangerous chips to the house one by one, the risk needs to be reduced over time and in a way that builds trust. Some people should also not see this vote at the IAEA as some sort of "anti-Jewish" conspiracy by other nations. Another prophecy is relevant. It's about "A marriage of the nations".
Fascinating times we live in, nu...

14. What Nuclear Weapons?
Nukes is insurance to Israel.
The arab nations surrounding Israel are intelligently retarded. So if they manage to get nukes they will explode in their hands.
16. why not come out with it
the US, Russia, China, France, and Britain have nukes, declared and legal. Israel should say: "The State of Israel has nuclear weapons. As Jews have been one of the few peoples subjected to genocide, and to the greatest genocide in modern history, we reserve the right to keep nuclear weapons for self defense." The end.
17. CAN I HEAR A
Thank you OBAMA from Israel. Can I get a thank you? Will there be a thank you? Most likely not from the most anti-American Israeli administration ever and it's obvious because Obama is a black man. The US goes out of it's way to protect Israel and we never get a thank you. All we get is we want and have to have more.
you're so stupid. this person WAS SARCASTIC!!!!! note the "peace loving arabs" quote.
god, you are such am moron, lacking in reading between the lines. you must be an arab, for sure!
because, you never tell your enemy what you have or don't have.
you keep them guessing just in case they decide to misbehave!
bs and you know it.
IF IN CASE ISRAEL OPENED ITS NUCLEAR ARSENAL FOR THE WORLD TO SEE AND INSPECT,
RUSSIA, THE USA, ETC... ETC... WILL HAVE TO PEN THEIR NUCLEAR SITES TO SCRUTINY AND MONITORING.
none of these nations are signatory to the npt for very very good reasons.
why should israel be?
no wonder the europeans and americans went against the arab nations in this resolution...they did it for themselves, not for israel because if israel will be required to open up its arsenal, so will the usa, russia, etc... to world monitoring and supervision and this is what both the usa and russia refuse to do.
believe me, the usa doesn't do anything for anyone if their interests are not there.
so, thank yours are not in order here at all.
israelis are not ass lickers, sir. we are a sovereign nation, a strong one economically, scientifically and miitarily and there is no need for thanks because if it wasn't for israel and its superb intelligence in the middle east, american could never have a foothold there and thev russians will dominate it all, not in america's global influence interests, you see now why you do not need a thank you from us?
Wow are you naive. Its time for you to grow up. Read # 19 over & over again, until you know it by heart.
# 19 is 100% correct except for 1 point.
Israel did sign the NPT treaty, however it has not been ratified.
