So Netanyahu (aka Milikovsky) canceled the trip for fear Egypt and Turkey would demand that Israel sign up to the international Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty?! What a scandal indeed: Just imagine Israel being treated as any other nation! Of course Israel's nuclear program and Iran's nuclear program are linked: Banning nuclear weapons from the Middle East cannot succeed if Israel?s arsenal is not also included negotioations. ?Some delegations initially called for allowing a few Arab countries to possess nuclear weapons if Israel does not join the NPT within a certain period of time, but that proposal was left out of closing remarks.? Let no-one ever tell me again that ?the Arabs? are not reasonable! Too reasonable sometimes, as seems to be the case in this matter.
