I Can Has Nukz?

Israel’s Prime Minister Olmert told a powerful parliamentary panel on Monday that Israel rejects “no options” to block Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, a meeting participant said. “Israel clearly will not reconcile itself to a nuclear Iran,” the meeting participant quoted Olmert as telling the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. “All options that prevent Iran from gaining nuclear capabilities are legitimate within the context of how to grapple with this matter.”

Okay, The thought of Ahmadinejad holstering up a few nukes scares the willies out of me. But what does Israel say to neighboring Arab states that have the same concerns about Israel? There’s no “proof” that Iran has nukes. There’s no “proof” that Israel does, either. There’s whack jobs in Iran, there’s whack jobs in Israel. So Israel wants to be able to use a military option to curtail a nuke program in Iran since they feel threatened. And why do we all flip out when Iran feels threatened by Israel’s program? Is this a case of pot, kettle, black?
