Natalie you are mixing apples and Jaffa oranges. This is an entirely different issue. This is not political. The adolescent humanity-hating Mullahs in Teheran would rather the human race suffer than see Israel invited to a conference where their technological knowledge can contribute to the well-being of global society. Even the Arab nations in conflict with Israel are not going to do this. Political games, yes, are played by all...Israel included. But this is an entirely different matter which you might not be able to see. If you've read my posts here, you might have noticed that I am a frequent critic (not hater) of Israel and her policies. When was the last time you publicly criticized Iran over their treatment of Bahais? Your response to all is welcome.
