1. Europe hasn't ;earned the lesson.....
Avraham ,   Netivot   (05.25.06)
The Europeans, Russia & China will do everything they can to block UN santions & thus curry favor in the arab world. The world has not learned the lessons of the Shoah. The only difference is that today we have a country & the best army in the world & will defend ourselves. G-D is on our side. Am Yiroel Chai V'Kayiam!
2. Nuclear Iran
Dennis Cast ,   Kinta,Oklahoma ,USA   (05.25.06)
The fact that Iran was aquiring nuclear tech. was known 10 years ago. Why weren't they confronted then?Is anyone confronting Russia about training Iranians in building the short and medium range missles that could deliver them? Dennis Cast
3. olmert visit a great success
debra ,   usa   (05.25.06)
olmert got what he came here for. bush told him america will not tolerate a nuclear iran. israel and the u.s. are on the same page. within a year, but in reality much sooner, iran's nuke factories are toast. good going prime minister olmert.
4. Why is Israel allowed to have 200+ nukes
Ellen Prescott ,   Southsea, Hampshire   (05.25.06)
yet Iran is banned from exploring nuclear power? Such hypocrisy! Iranians are human beings, and they are also inclined to self-determination. (It isn't only limited to Jews.) And if they want nuclear energy, who on earth is any foreigner to tell them that they can't? If anybody should be criticised it ought to be the Israelis who have hundreds of nuclear weapons, who defy international obligations to allow weapons inspections! Such a double-standard!
5. Am I anti-semitic?
Ellen Prescott ,   Southsea, Hampshire   (05.25.06)
Just because I critisize Israel that doesn't make me an anti-semite. The fact that I don't like Jews, well that is different isn't it? I admit that I am confused on this issue.
6. #2 What about the Germans?
Logic ,   Israel   (05.25.06)
What about the Germans, Swiss, French, and Russians, who supplied components over these years to Iran? And what about them and all the others who ignored Washington's containment policy and continued to trade with Iran?
7. To #4
Avraham ,   Netivot   (05.25.06)
In case you haven't figured it out, we are not threatening to wipe any other nation or people off the map, like your friends the fanatic Iranians. The fact that you don't like Jews & bash Israel does make you an anti-semite, something you shouldn't be proud of.
8. to psycho #4
Gil ,   Tel Aviv   (05.25.06)
Slight teeny weeny difference between Israel and Iran... Israel doesn't announce to the world that it wants to wipte another country from the map. Iran brutally enforces an unwanted regime on its people (most of whom hate it and actually want peace with Israel and the US). Iran sponsors terrorism throughout the middle east. I fail to understand how they can ever be trusted. It seems that the one with the double standards around here is the multiple pyscho poster, the one and only ellen prescott.

Roni   (05.25.06)
I do not want to waste my valuable time on "differently able" people like you but I'll spell it out for you: Iran can pursue nuclear technology for ENERGY/PEACEFUL purposes all it wants - but islamo-fascists in Iran want NUCLEAR WEAPONS to DESTROY ISRAEL! Iran's nuclear program is NOT FOR PEACEFUL purposes, get it thruogh your thick, slow Hampshire head! Your opinion is irrelevant - you and your leftist friends can bark all you want - Israel and US (along with our buddy Blair by the way) WILL NOT allow Iran to get nuclear weapons. Kapish?

I do not care a hoot if you are anti semitic or not. If you are I will not succeed in changing you by talkbacks. I regard anti semitism as a disease for which there is no cure. To the subject in hand. Anyone who uses the argument of one sidedness, of hypocrasy or of double standards is guilty of one thing only, of having a brain capable of extremely shallow thought and absolutely no analytical capabilities whatsoever. I would like to explain to you, but as I have said,I believe you are simply incapable of comprehending.

gm ,   south africa   (05.25.06)
last i checked, Israel has no desire for world domination and forcing people to convert to Judaism, through conquering or suicide bombings. Israel's arms are for her defense. I see a lot of surrounding arab countries that fight for her destruction. I have not seen Israel call for Iran's destruction, yet Israel and the West have been threatened by Iran. Now you tell me in whose hands you prefer weapons to be in.
16. to gm south africa
aa ,   london   (05.25.06)
i dont know where you are living but incase you live on mars i must correct the information that you have my mars freind , israel clearly has all the desire in the world to dominate earth and all the people on it and that is exactly what they are doing . israels arms are for occupieng other peoples land and in the end the whole planet . and who ever wants to destroy israel it is because of the major land theft and killing of the people who live on this land , so do you blame those who want to distroy israel ? and finaly israel has been calling for the destruction of the muslim people for centuries , and you should also know that it is the whole world who is threatened by israel and it is not iran who is threatining the world .. now my mars freind , you tell me in whose hands do you prefer weapons to be in ......
17. Enjoy being an idiot? Believe Bush and/or Olmert.

18. #11 'palestinian'
gm ,   south africa   (05.25.06)
I don't think you were paying attention ... she was supporting Iran in this instance. If Iran has nukes, they are not going to worry about your safety if they want to go after Israel.
19. gm, you crazy
redcurrent ,   squeege   (05.25.06)
are you serious? what do you think this media hype is impressing? BOMB IRAN. nuclear weapons, for defense? so, by your argument, Iran is entitled.. funny that, as all they want is energy. israel, as you witness it, is calling for iran's destruction through this very article. or can you not read? let's put this simply.. if israel were to ignore iran, what do you think would happen? i think nothing.
20. gm ,
aa ,   london   (05.25.06)
at this point my freind if i where living in palestine i would not two craps if i get bombed by the iranians , because my freind iam now being bombed everyday by the zionists and being killed everyday by the zionist nazi occupation , so i with no doubt would rather die one time than getting killed and humiliated everyday by the zionists...
21. thank you aa , you took the words rite out of my mouth......

wipe the corners of your mouth your frothing with verbal diarrhoea, someone hand him some laxative so he can pass what counts for a brain in the toilet bowl and not here in talkback. man your so full of shyte. you even make Ellen prescott look ultra intelligent.

Caligula's Horse ,   Solomon's stables   (05.25.06)
Ya akbar ahabal, do you want Iran to have nukes? Is that what you care about, "Iran's right for nuclear technology"? cant you understand that if Iran has nukes not only will Israel be deleted but so will Ramallah, Gaza, Nablus, Jenin, Hevron, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudia, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Algeir and pretty much all of the middle east? Are you willing to sacrifize hundreds of millions of Muslims only to destroy our state? Are you stupid?
25. For aa, london and idiot Muslims like him
Caligula's Horse ,   Solomon's Stables   (05.25.06)
You Muslims are crazy, how can 1.5 billion people feel threatened by 6 million Israelis? You must have a serious case of mental disorder. Do you realise how stupid you sound claiming that Israel wants to conquer the world while it sits on 0.025% of the middle east's landmass? Do you really think people are dumb enough to believe the moronic brainwash you spew here?

In answer to the last question you posed. Yes
joe   (05.25.06)
“Our armed forces are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. Israel has the capability of hitting most European capitals with nuclear weapons. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that this will happen before Israel goes under.” "We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets of our air force." **Martin Van Creveld, a professor of military history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem** The problem is Israel, not Iran. I fear Israel and its 46 percent of ethnic cleansing and Islam hating fanatics—who are essentially racists, no different than troglodytic members of the KKK or the millions of deluded Germans who believed the racial theories of the Nazi Alfred Rosenberg. One has to be more worried about the bought and sold Congress- almost all prostituted down to the man and woman—on the AIPAC food chain and the neocon leash. I fear the rabid Van Crevel and his fellow citizens more than I fear Ahmadinejad and the Iranian mullahs.
28. read this
We believe strongly that if Americans knew the truth about Israel and Palestine -- about the massive amount of our tax money that is being given away to Israel, and about the human costs of Israel's American-financed militarism -- they would demand an immediate re-thinking of our policies in this region. It is the goal of If Americans Knew to inform the American public accurately about this area. Most of all, it is to inform Americans about our enormous, and too often invisible, personal connection to it. Americans, through our blank check to Israel, are empowering the worst elements of Israeli society, and undermining those working for a just, peaceful, and nondiscriminatory nation. We are driving the violence in this region. We can stop it.

DR ,   Florida, USA   (05.25.06)
You are all worthless terror loving idiots. You say Israel wants to rule the world? How many Jews are there and how many muslims are ther...go look it up and get back to me with the figures. Morons!!! Israel can wipe out the whole middle east with it's airforce alone, but do they ever instigate war??? No! Iran wants to wipe Israel off the map, right? You would all be happy with that b/c you are brainwashed retards who don't care about human life. You would send your children to blow themselves up just to kill a few jews wouldn't you??? You are all Pathetic and your day will come. The world is changing and people are taking their are all on the wrong one...the evil one.
30. Double standard
Jeremiah ,   USA   (05.25.06)
Israel can have nuclear weapons. It's neighbors can't. Israel can violate UN resolutions with impunity. It's neighbors can't. Israel can illegally colonize occupied territory. It's neighbors can't. How about a single standard?
