Israel is a country in a state of cold war with Syria, Iran, Hezbollah and the Hamas. There are about 50 other countries whose governments refuse trade or diplomatic ties with Israel, and whose populations would rejoice in the streets if their leaders destroyed Israel tomorrow. Asking Israel to sign the NPT or allow inspectors into its nuclear facilities is asking Israel to lay its cards on the table. Israel, for very obvious and elementary reasons, is unwilling and unable to do this.
Equally, Iran as a sovereign country has the right to keep its own nuclear ambitions secret from the prying eyes of the "international community" - but it's too late, because they already signed the NPT which means they are obliged to cooperate with the IAEA.
Hope that clears things up for you
JERUSALEM – The Israeli military on Wednesday released documents and photos it said proved Iran was behind a huge shipment of weapons Israeli navy commandos intercepted last week.
Israel has said the cargo ship its troops seized off the coast of Cyprus was carrying 500 tons of Iranian-made weapons for Lebanese Hezbollah militants. The ship had dozens of containers with Iranian markings on it.
On Wednesday, the military released what it said was the ship's manifest that showed it was handled by "Islamic Republic of Iran's Shipping Lines." It also produced labeling from the containers indicating the ship originated in Isfahan, Iran, and a customs form stamped by the Iranian armed forces.
Both Iran and Hezbollah have denied the Israeli claims. Officials at Iran's Foreign Ministry were not immediately available for comment Wednesday.
An international expert who examined the documents and pictures of the weapons said the arms came from Iran, but it was not possible to determine whether the Iranian government was directly involved. Another was not prepared to pinpoint the source of the weapons.

After everything the Prophet Muhammad said,
Do we take them seriously?
Can they trust them selves?
Do they take it litrually?
Do they practice what they preach?
Are they afraid the world could come to nuclear war and fear death?
Do they think self suicide and honour during a nuclear conflict is okay?
Do they have an Islamic prophecy to fulfill?
Would they feel sensative towards another nation if they get religiously offended.
Could home grown terrorists get their hands on these weapons?
Are they easily infiltrated by extreamists in nuclear power environments- Fort Dale was flip personality disorder so this will be much more grandeur.
Are they likely to snap at something amateur or offensive or over nothing?
Since they are not important questions, what do they think about non-muslim world, really like deep down.

I would prefer if muslims were included in western politics and media so that muslims and non muslims can learn more about each other and try to understand each other. Mutual understanding should lead to mutual acceptance and hopefully peaceful coexistance.
The current approach will never have that outcome and can only lead to more misery for all.
