“Mr. Waters, you are a phony.
By banning Israel you side with Israel’s enemies and those that wish to annihilate it, those that have planted bombs in buses and pizza parlors.
Perhaps he should have a concert in Cairo, Damascus, Gaza City, Tehran…
You see Mr. Waters, these countries don’t have rock concerts, and they don’t allow any freedom of speech or freedom of thought or ideas. You cannot get up on a soap box to discuss your FEELINGS in these countries.
And among all these countries is one tiny country that espouses liberal ideals, is open to all religions is open to all sexual orientations and is open to debate and self evaluation. But yet you support its enemies position and do so vehemently that you want others to ban Israel too. Thus you are either stupid (don’t think so), naïve and uninformed (likely) or hateful.
You are a phony.”
“Barbara, You want to make yourself useful and relevant?
Stop criticizing countries which you don't live in. (and haven't been to in 30 years) . Use your influence in your own country to educate the misguided liberals in the entertainment world about the importance of Israel as a democratic beacon in the world and Middle east. Because some of the liberal Hollywood crowd seem to be under the misguided understanding that Israel is an evil empire that deserves to be boycotted and divested.
Please use your influence in the country of your residence, in your own culture that you are familiar with. That way you might really be able to help Israel.”
“Iran is a rogue state and pariah to the west and Middle Eastern world.
They are in deep violation of nuclear arms treaty, and are the subject of harsh international sanctions.. The whole world is telling them to stop and they won’t. They deny their own population human rights that all decent countries abide by and show complete disregard by continuing to produce weapons grade uranium hence putting their own people through tough sanctions. All the while the leaders and Mullahs enjoy enormous wealth.
Lets be clear, there is only one reason they wish to produce uranium and that is for military purposes. All they need to do is stop and this thing will clear up.”

“You know what is going on in their heads? Really? That is NOT the only reason they'd be working on nuclear development. What about power?
Also, please post proof of them being in "deep violation" of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Do you even know what it says? Probably not...”

“There is actually no proof that they are producing weapons grade uranium. Nobody but YOU has ever stated that.”

“So much jibberish, in fact it would be positive if they took that step since nuclear Israel refusal to put under NPT conditions.
“First....in violation of what nuclear arms treaty ? You mean the one Iran actually signed and Israel didn't ? You mean that treaty ? And how did Iran violate that treaty ?
Second....."there is only one reason they wish to produce uranium and that is for military purposes"......IF this we're true.....It would be to have a deterrent against Israel.......because they HAVE nuclear weapons....and at the moment.....it's not Iran threatening. (And please spare me the mistranslated quote, thank you)”

“Radioisotopes used for medicinal purposes such as T-99 are commercially available all over the world. It need not be produced in Iran.
I just want to be sure that people evaluating this situation realize that Iran does not have any need to enriched uranium. This is all propaganda. Its looking to become a nuclear power in the middle east.
Even worse-- why would Iran be subjecting its own people to such crippling sanctions? Why doesn’t it just stop enriching uranium? Because it doesn’t even care about its own people.”
froggythegremlin on Aug 28, 2012 at 15:44:31
“Iran may be bellicose, but not insane. Why shouldn't Iran have the right to produce their own T-99, or nuclear power for that matter? How would anyone react if they had been named as part of an "axis of evil" at the same time that preemptive war was started in a neighboring country?”

“"It need not be produced in Iran. "
You're implying Iran, although a signatory of the NPT and a member of the IAEA, guaranteeing it "all the benefits" of nuclear energy, is not entitled to self-provision of medical isotopes it wishes to administer to it's own people, BECAUSE it cares for them? Isotopes they are barred from purchasing abroad because of US sanctions off course....”
“Iran has the means to deliver a nuclear missile to Israel. Iran has repeatedly threatened Israel with annihilation both directly and indirectly. Iran Is enriching uranium for which it has no peaceful use and a continuing to do so despite “crippling sanctions” and international outcry. They are playing a shell game with the atomic energy inspectors and have lied about its program.
What is the US and the world waiting for?”

“Israel already possesses a vast, undeclared nuclear arsenal, flatly refuses to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty (which Iran IS a signatory to) and is actually IN THE PROCESS of preparing for war as the initial aggressor!!”
Quinterius on Aug 27, 2012 at 20:25:35
“You sound like a real bozo. Where do you get your information? How did you find out that Iran has a nuclear "missile" and where did you learn that Iran has threaten poor little Israel? Finally, how did you find out that Iran is enriching uranium to a level that it does not need? What is that level and why do you think Iran is doing it? Do you have any idea about the applications of uranium in Iran?”

"Iran Running Out of Life-Saving Isotopes
Ruhollah Solook, 78, was dying before a donated kidney and complex radiotherapy saved his life. Recovering in an isolation room in Tehran's oldest hospital, he expressed his joy in a telephone interview. "They saved my life already. I hope they will be able to cure me entirely now."
But Solook's treatment has become a race against time, as has that of 850,000 other Iranians suffering from heart and kidney disease and various cancers. Sometime after March 2010, the country will run out of technetium-99, a radioisotope crucial to the treatment of these diseases. Technetium-99 is currently produced locally in Iran.
"We recommend treatment with these products to hundreds of patients every month in our hospital alone," said Dr. Gholamreza Pourmand, Solook's physician. Technetium-99 is essential to radiotherapy, Pourmand said: "If we cannot help these people, some will die. It's as simple as that."
“Did you ever consider that the US Congress is siding with what they believe is right and what the American people believe is right?
Remember, Israel is a democracy, a friend, stands for human rights and is under constant siege by hostile enemies and neighbors. On the other hand its neighbors and opponents are autocratic, authoritarian, non compassionate to minorities, fail on most measures of human rights and you wouldn’t even be able to post your opinion in their country.”
“Your brother is more astute than you.
Obama threw Israel under the bus because:
1. He continues to push Israel to stop building settlements in the absence of a negotiation process. In other words he wants Israel to give up land as a precondition to peace talks. Remember it was the PA who walked out of the most recent peace talks.
2. He fails to recognize that Israel has no viable and credible partner in peace. The Palestinians are now represented in part by Hamas. No fair minding individual, let alone the president would expect Israel to negotiate with a terrorist organization who has already stated that any peace agreement would only be a temporary step toward the full goal of termination of the Jewish state.
3. He fails to recognize that this is the worst time for Israel to make any concession in view of the Arab revolt where yesterdays treaties with Arab leaders are potentially worthless today.
4. He lacks credibility because his speech invites the Arab world to join America in democracy and friendship while at the same time demonstrates how it treats the only democracy and friend in the region%u2026by throwing it under the bus.”
