We need to acknowledge the genuine security concerns of Israel and Iran, as well as point out the objective hazards of nuclear-weapons possession.
Some Israelis argue that Israel alone is responsible for preventing Iran from gaining the necessary technology for nuclear weapons.
Israel must come clean about its own nuclear program if it hopes to be credible about nonproliferation with Iran.
The alleged assassination plot and the recent IAEA report are greasing the skids for war against Iran.
It behooves us to remember that Israel's nuclear weapons program is as illegal as Iran's would be.
And how implausible are Iran's claims that the IAEA Directorate General is politically compromised?
Never before has Congress restricted the right of the White House or State Department to meet with representatives of a foreign state, as this bill proposes.
The latest IAEA report on Iran may dangerously undermine prospects for a reasonable and negotiated resolution of the Iran-West nuclear standoff.
Does Iran believe that by developing the capacity to build nuclear weapons it can facilitate worldwide nonproliferation and disarmament?
Washington's approach toward Iran does not even merit a label, because there is no coherent policy -- just a series of actions lurching toward a potential regional war.
