    ""[Israel] has nuclear weapons and nuclear capabilities, that are not under international supervision," Othman continued. "It is a legitimate concern to ask Israel to join the nuclear non-proliferation treaty."" This, of course, is the absolute truth. But Israel desperately wants to be the only nation in the Middle East to have nukes. That way, if it is backed into a corner in war it can always threaten to obliterate the honmeland of the nation about to overwhelm it. This is the reason Israel is campaigning so hard for America to hit Iran on its behalf, for once Iran has a nuclear deterrent it is in extreme peril. Every future war will have to be fought and won entirely by conventional means, and Israel will get unlucky one day. So we hear constant propaganda for war from Israel. Israel cares nothing about the consequences of war for the rest of the world. As alwas, it thinks only of itself.
