Israel has right to be alarmed by Iranian hostility, nuclear arms
Sara Zayed voices real concerns about Israel’s treatment of Palestine. However, while those concerns need to be addressed, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s issue is with real and present danger of the development of weapons grade nuclear material by Iran. This country has been acting like a rogue state for much of its recent past, has been explicit in its desire to eliminate the state of Israel and has directly supported some terrorist organizations. Israel is right to be alarmed at the prospect of nuclear weapons in the hands of a nation dedicated to its demise.
