    A reality check from an impartial, fair-minded long term observer of the Middle East.... 1. Israel introduced nuclear weapons to the Middle East. If supporters of Israel don't want Iran to do the same, wouldn't it be just to support the elimination of Israel's nuclear weapons? 2. If Iran had nuclear weapons and Israel did not, would not Israel seek to acquire those weapons as a deterrent to attack by Iran? Given that Israel has often been the aggressor in the Middle East, it seems only normal that MANY of the states that Israel has threatened would seek a an effective deterrent to attack by Israel. 3. Israel has been, at best, the most reluctant participant in attempts at peace between the Jews and the Arabs/Persians. This might have short term advantages to Israel, but long term, it risks the country's survival. Why is it that a race as extraordinary as the Jews can't seem to raise leaders who are able to make peace? Where is the Jewish Sadat?
