For the past four days we all have been bombarded by the media about Iran and secret nuclear facility in Qom.

It is quite surprising to me that nearly all the Main Stream Media have been on the bandwagon on Iran and nuclear weapons. Not one media person had shown their independent thinking or having the guts to ask about the nuclear program in Israel. We know that Israel has nuclear weapons but they are not informing us about the nuclear weapons in Israel. How do we look to the outside world?

As someone who is against nuclear weapons and supports a nuclear weapon free world. Why is it that Iran is the country that we are picking on?

Some questions for the so called experts and journalists:

Why is Iran in violation and not Israel? If Iran is in violation then Israel has been in violation for a long time. What the G3 needs to do is to compel Israel, India and Pakistan to join the NPT. Till this is done we are not credible. Israel has nuclear weapon and we are not going after them. We are not credible on this matter. Israel also must come clean!!!!!!

Why is Vanunu not allowed to travel out of Israel? This is also a human rights violation issue. Vanunu was the Moroccan Jew and an Israeli former nuclear technical assistant that revealed details of Israel's nuclear weapons program to the British Press in 1986. He was kidnapped by Israeli intelligence operatives and transported to Israel. He was tried and convicted of treason and espionage. He spent 18 years in prison and more than 11 years in solitary confinement.  

Why is Israel not a member of the NPT?
The UN's nuclear assembly passed a resolution last week urging Israel to accede to the NPT and open their atomic sites to inspections by the IAEA. Israel refused, " Israel will not cooperate in any matter with this resolution which is only aiming at reinforcing political hostilities and lines of division in the Middle East region "
India and Pakistan have also refused to sign the treaty and permit inspections.

Entering the NPT would place Israel’s nuclear arsenal under direct international scrutiny for the first time since its creation. Coming clean with its own decades of nuclear activities may also undermine its demands to crack down on the Iranian government.

We need to start the elimination of nuclear weapons by having and insisting that all countries with nuclear weapons must be members of the NPT. Israel does not even confirm that she has nuclear weapons and goes around insisting that Iran should not be allowed to have nuclear weapons. Who allowed Israel to have nuclear weapons?????
