Can we figure out a way of acknowledging Israel's nuclear weapons?
Here's something from the Washington Times that I didn't know:
It is illegal in Israel for newspapers to print that the country has nuclear arms.What?!?!? How can there be any serious discussion of Israel's military or geopolitical situation in Israel's newspapers if they can't state such a fundamental reality? It would be like trying to talk about the Viking's offense without mentioning that Favre is quarterback. It makes all such discussions laughably silly.
No wonder forging peace is so difficult: the taboos and weirdness are so deep that we can't even talk about obvious things. Can we please figure out a way to acknowledge basic realities in public?
