A country having nuclear energy is acceptable if they want it, they are going thru the proper channels to do it.
There is nothing political correct here, facts are not PC.

Well if Obama did not threaten to shoot down any Israeli plane headed for Iran then he would not have to come here and tell Congress what a Lying, corrupt dirt bag Obama is. He is a Muslim Brotherhood leader, Obama wants his peace deal so he can have something that makes his Noble Prize seem worth more than the paper it is written on, even if its a crime to everyone in the world.
Operation Orchard (Hebrew: מבצע בוסתן, Mivtza bustan) was an Israeli airstrike on a suspected nuclear reactor in the Deir ez-Zor region of Syria, which occurred just after midnight (local time) on September 6, 2007.
On June 7, 1981, eight Israeli F-16 fighter jets, protected by six F-15 escorts, dropped 16 2,000-pound bombs on the nearly completed Osirak nuclear reactor at the Tuwaitha complex in Iraq.
When grant, loans, interest and tax deductions are added together for the fiscal year ending in September 30, 1997, our special relationship with Israel cost U.S. taxpayers over $10 billion.
Since 1949 the U.S. has given Israel a total of $83.205 billion. The interest costs borne by U.S. tax payers on behalf of Israel are $49.937 billion, thus making the total amount of aid given to Israel since 1949 $133.132 billion. This may mean that U.S. government has given more federal aid to the average Israeli citizen in a given year than it has given to the average American citizen.
I'll say I 100% disagree with shooting the planes down but I also 100% agree with stopping an an unsanctioned attack on a country that could very well spark an all out war on that region.
Iran is a silent threat to the world ..

like seriously people, there is not one nation on Earth more responsible for the suffering of the human race and the collapse of nations over the last 68 years than the USA.
It is worth remembering, however, that Netanyahu has said much of this before. Almost two decades ago, in 1996, Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress where he darkly warned, “If Iran were to acquire nuclear weapons, this could presage catastrophic consequences, not only for my country, and not only for the Middle East, but for all mankind,” adding that, “the deadline for attaining this goal is getting extremely close.”
Almost 20 years later that deadline has apparently still not passed, but Netanyahu is still making dire predictions about an imminent Iranian nuclear weapon. Four years before that Congressional speech, in 1992, then-parliamentarian Netanyahu advised the Israeli Knesset that Iran was “three to five years” away from reaching nuclear weapons capability, and that this threat had to be “uprooted by an international front headed by the U.S.”
In his 1995 book, “Fighting Terrorism,” Netanyahu once again asserted that Iran would have a nuclear weapon in “three to five years,” apparently forgetting about the expiration of his old deadline.
For a considerable time thereafter, Netanyahu switched his focus to hyping the purported nuclear threat posed by another country, Iraq, about which he claimed there was “no question” that it was “advancing towards to the development of nuclear weapons.” Testifying again in front of Congress again in 2002, Netanyahu claimed that Iraq’s nonexistent nuclear program was in fact so advanced that the country was now operating “centrifuges the size of washing machines.”
Needless to say, these claims turned out to be disastrously false. Despite this, Netanyahu, apparently unchastened by the havoc his previous false charges helped create, immediately went back to ringing the alarm bells about Iran.

My, how is so much hate generated against a man doing his job? reminds me of Churchill and 1939, but Netanyahu wont be able to say "told you so" when Israel is a field of green glass.
As an aside, Jews have allways lived in that area, ever since king Solomon, long before 'Arabs' were invented, Israel had Egyptians to the south, and Hittites to the north, Hittites morphed into Turks, but Egyptians staid that, Egyptians.
The Law of Return, the Israeli law that established the right of Jews around the world to settle in Israel and which remains in force today, was a central tenet of Zionism. It is invoked by some religious Jews to support territorial claims (even though, based on this research, many Arabs, including Palestinians, where therefore also have a genetic ‘right of return’).
he Jewish community of Persia, modern-day Iran, is one of the oldest in the Diaspora, and its historical roots reach back to the 6th century B.C.E
The new research underscores an emerging consensus that wandering Jewish men, from the Near East, established a mosaic of small Jewish communities—first in Italy and then scattered throughout Europe, often taking on local gentile wives and raising their children as Jews.

I have to agree with everything Netanyahu is saying. Iran does sponsor terrorism and if they get nukes it will only guarantee nuclear war. You have to be a special kind of stupid if you don't see that.
