Iran’s Request For Israel Is An Illusion

American Daily

Iran is clearly attempting to divert attention away from its own activities of concealment and deceit in a nuclear weapons program, believed by America for weapons of mass destruction, by pressing Israel to relinquish nuclear weapons.

Although it is believed that Israel has nuclear weapons capability, Israel has never ever either confirmed nor denied it has a deterrent nuclear program.

According to Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharraz, Israel should be pressed to give up nuclear weapons.

Kharraz made is remarks after talks with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus. Syria has proposed that the UN Security Council should declare the Middle East a nuclear weapons free zone. "International pressure should be applied to Israel to eradicate its weapons of mass destruction in the interests of the whole region," Kharrazi said. The Security Council is divided on the question of taking up Syria's proposal, which is perceived as aimed at Israel.

One can not expect Israel to give up a deterrent force against any enemy sworn to its annihilation and destruction. Iran and Syria, two of the largest state sponsors of terrorism must clean up their own act and house before pointing the finger at others in the Middle East. Any attempt to pressure Israel to relinquish a deterrent nuclear program which is neither confirmed nor denied is clearly an illusion as well as a smokescreen in covering up its true objective.
