I am no expert of the politics of that region. I don't know all the history. I do know that this is the kind of thing that just seems wrong. I would like to think there is some sort good reason behind something like this, but I don't see it. If any would like to explain what is going on from one side or the other please do so.

thats because there is nothing good about it this, its going to lead to war over the temple moount because that is what israel is trying to get to so that they can fulfill that ole' propechy about building the third temple and hasten the return of christ... strangly enough i find it increasingly worrisome that they continue to do just that and the world is slowly turning against them, those who were with them anyways, and that too is propechy, kinda strange huh... im not a bible thumper by any means but religious prophecy intrests me greatly.

Recently, I read an opinion piece in which the author was suggesting that Iran should be stopped from acquiring the bomb by all means; one of the reasons being that Iran could become a bully in the region.

From a pro-Israeli perspective that would make sense, but objectively speaking we all know that the West's little brother in the Middle East, Israel, plays the role of bully.

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union balanced the power of the US, hence preventing the US from behaving in the brutal, lawless and unjustifiable way Israel has been doing for the past decades.

For a lot of people in the Middle East - the Palestinians in particular - it would be a very positive development. Finally, Israel could not kill, destroy and terrorize people without facing any consequences, but that's purely hypothetical as we all know Israel would never let Iran go nuclear.

For that reason, one thing is sure, we are at the brink of war and Israel's Ayalon rightfully said that 2010 will be the decisive year on Iran. Only a coupe d'etat could change things, if such an occurrence doesn't happen, Israel and the Palestinians will be worse off pretty soon.
