ISRAEL IS THE VICTIM, NOT THE CULPRIT

I refer to an article in the Kenya’s Daily Nation of Monday 1stOctober 2012, by Emmanuel B Ngala titled, ‘Israel thinks nuclear is only safe under its care.’ I bet to differ with his argument therein. It’s evident that for decades, Israel has never used its nuclear weapons despite all the threats directed to this nation from every angle.
Indeed, if you look at the historical background of the Middle East crisis, you will come to a conclusion that Israel is the victim not the culprit of security threats in the region. Back in 1947, Palestinian authority refused the formation of 2 states, one Israeli and the other Palestinian, claiming that 50-50 division of Palestine was unjust. Instead they joined 5 other Arab countries and

 war? Many invasions followed. We saw Lebanon, Jordan, Syria Egypt doing acts of aggression against the Jewish state, often doing so on behalf of the Palestinians.

Now, Iran is working on its nuclear progamme and it’s under UN sanctions due to the fact that the purpose of its nuclear technology is questionable. President Ahmadinejad of Iranian has categorically said that Israel should be obliterated from the surface of the earth. That’s a real danger to a member of the United Nations, and who knows the development of such a nuclear weapon by Iran could be targeted to achieving this objective of wiping Israel from the surface of the earth?
I would wish to remind the world that the question isn’t about owning a nuclear weapon but who owns that weapon. What if the nuclear lands on terrorists groups? Iran can’t be trusted with nukes and the world must not watch rogue states threatening the security of other states. Israel has the right to defend itself, and the Jews have the right to exist as a race just like any other human race in this planet.
