Foreign Policy ^ | Friday, October 19, 2012 | Josh Rogin

Sixty-two percent of those polled agreed that "Iran and its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, are friends of Egypt," though 68 percent held unfavorable views of Shiite Muslims.

Iran's deputy defense minister said recently that the Iranian regime is seeking more military cooperation with Egypt. "We are ready to help Egypt to build nuclear reactors and satellites," he said on the occasion or Egyptian President Mohammed Morsy's meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last month. Morsy's office has said the two didn't discuss military cooperation.

Eighty-seven percent of respondents want Egypt to have its own nuclear bomb.

Israel Project CEO Josh Block told The Cable that the statistics show the effect of Morsy's outreach to Iran and the danger of regional proliferation of nuclear weapons if Iran is successful in obtaining a nuclear bomb.

Prediction: Iran fires a nuke at Israel and it hits Cairo. Egypt gets a nuclear weapon, albeit it is an exploded nuke, and Iran gets wiped off the map.

Of course these moronic imbecile islamists want nukes. Nukes are the ultimate suicide bomb and these hateful gutter people place no value on life.

If there was a way to insure they would only be able to use nukes on themselves, I’d say give them enough to do the job.

The Revelations of Saint John the Divine" spell it out. The Middle East is about to blow and here we sit with a Muslim president worrying about the status of "Big Bird" and loose leaf binders.

“...Eighty-seven percent of respondents want Egypt to have its own nuclear bomb.”

This isn’t going to end well for Israel, if those muzzie/troglodyte/islamist MB filth also get a bomb.

The terrifying truth is the the Muslim world was never part of the horrors of Hiroshima and the nuclear Cold War threat. That is, their people never saw what nuclear weapons can do, nor experienced the cultural revulsion to the prospect of nuclear war.

So from the point of view of the “Muslim on the street”, nuclear weapons are just “big bombs”.

And only by experience can they learn the truth. A smaller horror that can persuade them to reject the larger horror.

Iran must have a nuclear accident. Tens of thousands of Iranians must suffer from radiation burns and sickness, and a billion Muslims must see from them why nuclear weapons are not like a genie in a bottle, offering them power, respect, wealth, and control over their enemies at little cost.

The sacrifices of these tens of thousands may save the lives of hundreds of millions of Muslims and others.

Here is one scenario.

Upwind of a major Iranian city, there is a nuclear weapons facility. There is a large bomb that has been smuggled inside this facility its explosive seeded with a small amount of incriminating nuclear isotopes.

Between the nuclear facility and the city, an unmarked semi truck stops. By remote control vents open on its roof and powerful but quiet fans then blow a large amount of radioactive isotopes into the air.

Once the truck has done its work, it quietly leaves, never to be seen again. Then the bomb in the nuclear facility blows up.

Within a couple of days, people in the city become very ill with radiation poisoning and extensive skin burns. Within a couple of weeks people start dying in great numbers, and after about a month, disease epidemics sweep the city, because many people’s immune systems are terribly weakened.

At first, the Iranian government denies everything. Then it tries to prevent the news from getting out. But once it does, they reject offers of international aid. Spies from around the world investigate and reveal the “truth” that the facility was making nuclear weapons and had an ‘accident’. The isotopes prove this beyond doubt, as they are only formed when nuclear weapons are made.

The world is shocked and horrified, and demands and ultimatums are made.
