Egypt To Continue Nuclear testing until Israel gives up the bomb

AP) Egypt's foreign minister on Saturday turned down a request from the world's nuclear watchdog to sign a treaty banning the testing of nuclear weapons, saying Israel should first join a separate agreement calling for a halt to the spread of atomic bombs. The refusal by Israel, which is believed to possess hundreds of nuclear warheads, to join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty has also made the Middle East more insecure, Ahmed Aboul Gheit said, according to Egypt's semiofficial Middle East News Agency. Aboul Gheit's comments came in a letter to Tibor Toth, the new executive secretary of the commission that oversees the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. "Egypt's ratification of the (test ban) treaty is linked to the extent of developments that may occur in regional and international circumstances, including the possibility that Israel may join the NPT," MENA quoted the minister as saying. All Middle Eastern counties except Israel are signatories to the NPT. Israel is believed to have commenced its nuclear program in the 1950s, but has never denied nor confirmed the widely held view that it possesses atomic bombs. Arab states have demanded the international community do more to force Israel to relinquish its nuclear arms.

well,well it is not just Iran , the double standards are finally coming home , if you allow one country to do as it pleases then others will follow .

and you dont have a moral leg to stand on unless you judge ALL with the same rules.

Israel will keep bombing its neighbors until they give up the nuclear programs.

They cant afford to have any of those guys go nuclear. And H, before you go off on another "fair" tirade, just remember that Israel hasnt offensive attacked any of them (with conquest ambitions) in modern history. They have all tried to attack Israel.

get the facts straight! 1)israel started the wars except for the Yom Kippur war. Thier leading General (Moshe Daylan) even admitted to provoking the Syrians. In 1973, Syria actually gained one third of the Golan Heights back. 2)The majority of arab weapon are for defensive puposes. any offensive weapons will be blocked by the Hypocritical USA. 3) israel is creating an arms race. everyone thinks israel is superior than the arabs. but they are not. the playing field is balanced towards israel for one reason only...and that's DIMONA! israel was either given the technology or they stole it. Unlike the arabs who are hard workers are figuring it out on their own, will have the balance of power on an even foot, and then what will israel do? you betcha, they would use it first, for they have no sympathy for human life.

i would disagree with you on your last fews points anonymous , but with the first few i dont have a problem

i am trying to address the balance somewhat with the work i do on this site ,

but i am not anti israel or anti arab

i do feel that the israel point of view is given far to much air time and the arab one far to little

if it comes right down to it

then most leaders have very little sympathy for human life , so in that point i agree with you , but i think it is a two way street

neither side is perfect , ant the list of crimes that both sides 'claim' is horrific

but balance is my key

(1) a right for the palastinains to live in peace without any interference from israel in any way , and the land divided as per the 1947 Un agreement

(2) the right for the nation of israel to exist in peace without fear from attacks

call me an old hippy if you want , but peace is brought about by compromise

i thank you for you comments
