Gaddafi Demands Nukes for All!
What could be fairer than that?
Pali-Arabs, Egyptians, Syrians and Saudis all have the right to nuclear weapons, Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi told Sky News in an interview aired Monday.
“Even the Palestinians should have [nuclear weapons] because their counterparts, or their opponents, have nuclear capabilities,” Gaddafi said in the interview. “If we don’t want this situation… we’ll have to disarm the Israelis from their nuclear weapons capabilities.”
Israel neither confirms nor denies the existence of a nuclear arsenal.
Gaddafi did not hold the same views for an Iranian right to nuclear weapons.
“If Iran were to manufacture nuclear weapons, nuclear arms, then all of us, including [Libya], will be against them,” he said. “But Iran has not said so.”
In September, Gaddafi gave an unprecedented 90-minute speech at the UN, at times rambling and reading from scribbled and ripped notes.
Libya gave up its own nuclear ambitions in 2003 after the US invasion of Iraq.
Even Mahmud Abbas tells the truth, sometimes:
When the [Israeli] aggression took place, [Hamas leaders] in Gaza and abroad said: “We don’t care if Gaza is erased.” They do not care if Gaza is erased. All they care about is that the Hamas movement continue to exist. They said this. Haniya and Mash’al said: We don’t care what happens. Mash’al went even further and said: “What is happening in Gaza is insignificant and does not affect us.” Then they said that the Hamas movement is alive and well. This was at a time when there were thousands of martyrs from among our people, thousands of wounded from among our people, and tens of thousands of destroyed houses. To this day, 100,000 Palestinians in Gaza are homeless, with no place to live. Yet the Hamas movement is alive and well. The Hamas movement was hiding under the domes [of mosques]. The Hamas leaders â€“ and I say this for the first time â€“ fled to the Sinai in ambulances, leaving their people behind to be slaughtered. Then they say: We put up resistance. Â MEMRI– Video here

PerhapsÂ this explains why the Turks have been so downright hostile to Israel lately.
Turkey points to Israel to deflect from itself
October 17, 10:51 AM Progressive Geopolitics Examiner Andrew E. Mathis
Turkey has been enormously critical of Israel’s military policy in Gaza since last year’s war, and the most recent development is that Turkish television has aired a television program on the conflict in which a fictional Israeli soldier is seen shooting a Palestinian baby.
It’s a charming bit of teledrama I’m sure. But what are the Turks trying to do in being so critical of Israel? Perhaps it amounts to their trying, in essence, to deflect attention away from its own dismal human rights record.
The chief area in which the Turkish government has committed the grossest human rights offenses has ben in its ongoing conflict with the Kurdish minority. Since 1978, the Turks have been in armed conflict with a secessionist group, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). There’s a strong analogy to be drawn between Israel’s fight with Hamas and Turkey’s fight with the PKK. Both the PKK and Hamas are recognized by the international community at large to be terrorist organizations. For its part, the PKK has engaged in bombings, killings of officials, etc.
The Turkish response has been, according to Human Rights Watch, to engage in torture, house raids, extrajudicial killings, and firing on crowds without discrimination for who is a combatant and who is not.
Does that ring familiarly at all? Sound like the things with which Israel has been accused in its conflict with the Palestinians?
Well, yes, except that Turkey has actually done all those horrible things and Israel has not. And Israel doesn’t need Turkey’s accusations to draw disproportionate attention from the ‘international community.’ The ‘international community’ is after us even without Turkey’s assistance.
