1. Seeing Netanyahu criticize someone else..
Gunnar ,   Gothenburg   (10.10.13)
...for "violating every UN Security Council resolution" is a little bit like having Charles Manson go after his prison guards for "not respecting human life and dignity".
2. Iran is a signatory of the Non Proliferation treaty
Sarah B ,   Tel Aviv/London   (10.10.13)
They have a right under that treaty to be able to enrich Uranium for a peaceful nuclear programme to produce electricity. Netanyahu can jump up and down and wave his arms about all he likes, if the NPT is to have any validity then it has to be seen to be upheld. The International community has never had any problem with iran enriching Uranium to the grade necessary to power it's nuclear reactors to create heat to make steam to drive the generators to produce electricity. The problems has been that this should be open and verifiable. If the Iranians produce a system that is open and verifiable, then under the terms of the NPT they will be allowed to enrich Uranium with the consent of the world. Netanyahu can do what he is elected to do solve the social and economic issues in Israel Netanyahu is on the wrong page, he also does not have a veto on any arrangements that are agreed under the context of the NPT

4. Bibi; You warned LEMMINGS
Tarbouche ,   Aswan   (10.10.13)
There is no longer any leadership in America or backbone in Europe. Russia and China should be very wary of Mullahs lest Iran turn on Russia and China as Kuffars . Islam fought Russia in Afghanistan not so long ago Europe and now America have done huge damage to the whole humanity the last 500 years. They now lead the world to Armageddon with stupid selfish acts. They hear you, but they will not listen.

6. # 4 And the Muslim wars?
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (10.10.13)
Any comments? Neither America or European's are involved, are they? Soon, fewer and fewer Muslims murdered by other Muslims..... Not too smart these Muslims... Rather die than to live in peace with each other. LOL and we're supposed to 'respect' that?
7. Odd comment from "Sarah B"
ASTRONAUT ,   SC, USA   (10.10.13)
Are you vying for a seat in the UN Security Council?
8. # 1 Germans giving Jews advice is like
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (10.10.13)
Germans trying to forget their murderous past and trying to act as humans. Both German's and Mullahs were allies, perfect recommendation for perfect devils. Go roll in the hay with a pig you swine.
9. The best Mothers in the world!
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (10.10.13)

11. @1 Gunnar and @2 fake-Sara
Dan   (10.10.13)
to @1: what a stupid senseless comparison. You need to visit a Israeli site in order to vent your ignorant Israel-hate. Poor man. to @2: your apologetic defense of the illegal Iranian nuclear program shows your true face. Are you sure you are from Tel Aviv/London and not from the propaganda ministry in Teheran?
12. #2 Sarah- Electricity needs on 3-4% enrichment
Netanya ,   Netanya   (10.10.13)
This is the fact, so to think that Iran needs Uranium that is 70% enriched for electricity is not the truth. You also should remember that Iran couldn't use all their oil for energy even if they were supporting all of USA also with it. Iran having anything nuclear will be a threat to the entire world, beginning with an arms race in the Middle East. Just think of the implications
13. Blitz
Suq Madiq ,   LA   (10.10.13)
Nuttinyahoo is a total war mongering loon. Israel is going to the dogs , the brutal occupation continues and all he can do is war monger about Iran Right now Israels WMD are under the control of settler scum. What could be more dangerous for the world
14. Bibi reminds me a dog chasing his tail ,...
split ,   US   (10.10.13)
15. Netanyahu warns Europe
Harold ,   USA   (10.10.13)
Europe and the US now believe what Nicolas Sarkozi described Netanyahu . So they will never believe his statements and warnings. To have a better reputation, he has to talk peace and the two states solution.
16. Netanyahu was right about Syria & the Arab Spring too.
Steve ,   UK   (10.10.13)
Netanyahu declared at the UN General Assembly that he prefers a diplomatic solution but also emphasised what many in the West still fail to come to terms with.   Netanyahu clarified that the West would do well to open its eyes to the Arab-Islamic mindset in the Middle East. And that the West would do well to remember that the Iranians are governed not by Rouhani, but by Ayatollah Khamenei. The Ayatollah embraces a messianic, apocalyptic, radical regime that leads all but the astute astray with smiling spokesmen. An internet search for a report with the headline "Iran leader: We must prep for 'end of times'" will put this into perspective.
17. Iran is under numerous Chapter VII UNSCR's sanctions
CJK   (10.10.13)
iran has an illicit nuclear weapons program. the iaea, which had discovered this program, referred iran to the unsc which subsequently passed a number of chapter vii resolutions forbidding iran to engage in any nuclear or ballistic missile activities. chapter vii resolutions allow for the use of force in case of non-compliance by the state that was sanctioned. iran has not only continued enrichment, but has since built the nuclear facility at Qom. iran has also been experimenting with implosion divicies and nuclear triggers and high speed cameras, all part of a nuclear weapons program. the heavy water reactor at Arak, is in itself a second path to a plutonium bomb.
18. All those barking back at Bibi
Israeli 2   (10.10.13)
one day will come and Bibi will not be barking anymore. He did his a matter of fact he is too patient with everyone. He will do what he must and put Iran in the rubbles of the world's trash bin and then he will say: " Don’t say I didn’t warn you."
19. Iran and sanctions
CJK   (10.10.13)
there are rumours that obama might lift some sanctions on iran. it must be made clear that obama cannot lift the chapter vii unscr's on iran. those danctions can be lifted only by the council itself, with no veto from any permanent member. however, if obama does lift american sanctions on iran, it would be the biggest mistake of his presidency. it is better to have no deal than to have a bad deal. we know how diplomacy with north korea has turned out.
20. #8 re #1
Lazerbenabba ,   London, England   (10.10.13)
I may not disagree with your sentiments but please note Gothenburg is in Sweden, not Germany.
21. @11 Dan - Yeah, not discussing the actual issue,...
Gunnar ,   Gothenburg, Sweden   (10.10.13)
...and instead resort to name-calling, that really strengthens your credibility. A LOT!!!
22. @20 Lazerbenabba - Do you really expect...
Gunnar ,   Gothenburg, Sweden   (10.10.13)
an American to know the difference?
23. Bibi is like a little chihuahua barking
Or a fish that was washed away by the sea and pain to breath. Bibi get lost!
24. #11 Dan
Sarah B ,   Tel Aviv/London   (10.11.13)
Iran is a signatory of the Non Proliferation Treaty. As a signatory Iran has the right to a peaceful nuclear power programme. In fact Iran has the right to ask the United States' help in achieving this. (they won't they have asked the Russians) I suggest you read it As for me being fake, my name is Sarah, my surname begins with B. I am a dual national owning properties both in Tel Aviv and London, I prefer to live in London, but I visit my property in Tel Aviv (which I lease out) at least twice a year. You might not like the fact that I am a strongly opinionated woman, frankly that's the reason I don't live in Israel
25. Netenyahu stop nagging...
Avi ,   Israel   (10.12.13)
You are beginning to sound like my mother in law...
26. What about enrichment by Israel?
Mark Schroeder ,   Germany   (10.12.13)
