StevelendmanIsrael from inception threatened regional peace and stability. Under Netanyahu and likeminded fascist thugs, it threatens humanity.

Netanyahu rails irresponsibly about Iran’s well-known peaceful nuclear program. He ignores Israel’s open secret.

The whole world knows it’s nuclear armed and dangerous. Its menacing arsenal includes illegal chemical and biological weapons – freely used in all its wars along with radiological ones.

Henry A. Obering III, a retired director of the Missile Defense Agency, said at a Senate hearing in April 2007 that “if we place it in Chesapeake Bay, we could actually discriminate and track a baseball-sized object over San Francisco.”
