Neutralising the Threat of Israel’s Undeclared Nuclear Arsenal Would Immediately Solve the Iranian Issue

In-depth Report:
As the deadline approaches in Lausanne it should be kept in mind that the only reason for Iran’s nuclear program is Israel’s huge, offensive nuclear arsenal that is a constant threat to the Middle East and the wider world.
Netanyahu has control of up to 400 nuclear warheads situated in underground silos at Dimona, in the Negev, and other sites plus his submarine-based, nuclear-tipped ICBMs submerged in the Red Sea and the Mediterranean.
The size and extent of this nuclear arsenal confirms that it is many, many times larger than that required for any defensive or deterrent measure and is clearly an offensive threat to all countries in the Middle East and beyond.
Neutralising this threat, by implementing a Nuclear Weapons Free Zone, would solve the entire issue of Iran and nuclear proliferation. A good start would be to insist that Netanyahu now signs the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT) without further delay.
Iran, of course, is already a signatory and subject to inspection.
