Israeli President:
No Nukes For Iran


Israel has announced it will not allow Iran to build nuclear weapons:


MADRID (AFP) - Israel will not allow "a totalitarian" Iran which exports international terrorism to have a nuclear capability, Israeli President Moshe Katsav said in a newspaper interview.

"It would be the first step for atomic bombs to fall into the hands of terrorists of the (Shiite fundamentalist movement) Hezbollah, the (Islamist) Hamas or Al-Qaeda for example," said Katsav who was born in Iran in 1945.

"We don't have a conflict of interest with Iran, we don't have a common border but we cannot allow a totalitarian country which exports international terrorism to have a nuclear capability," he told the conservative ABC newspaper on Monday.

Iran is a threat for Israel and for the rest of the world, he added.


God, we live in frightening times.
