ElBaradei leaps into action, attacks Israel again

In an interview with the German paper Der Spiegel over the weekend, feckless chief nuclear watchdog (but Nobel Prize winner) Mohamed ElBaradei once again attacked Israel for destroying a Syrian nuclear reactor last September. He also attacked current Transportation Minister and former Defense Minister and IDF Chief of Staff Shaul Mofaz for saying that Iran would be attacked if it continued its nuclear program.
Mohamed ElBaradei, the United Nations' chief nuclear inspector, believes there is a growing threat to global peace through the build-up of nuclear arms and the increasing penchant of counties to bomb suspected nuclear facilities. "With unilateral military actions, countries are undermining international agreements, and we are at a historic turning point," ElBaradei told SPIEGEL, referring to the recent Israel bombardment of Syria's Al Kibar complex in September and the threat made by Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Shaul Mofaz to attack Iran if the country "continues with its program to develop a nuclear bomb."
ElBaradei also said that Iranian cooperation "leaves a lot to be desired." But it's Israel that is the 'threat to global peace.' Right....

I have a feeling if the Jews didn't exist, life wouldn't be half so fun for the anti-Israel crowd. No one would pay them the slightest attention. Its thanks to Israel that they have at all a public megaphone.

There were people who argued against the creation of a Jewish state for exactly that reason. Overall, I believe that we are better off this way (and that once the state has been created, its destruction would be a disaster to the Jewish people everywhere). But I can see how people argued against one 100 years ago.

You have to give ElBaradei an A+ for protecting Arab nuclear installations.

It is truly amazing how they vanish into thin air whenever he appears.

He now protests the destruction of something that he claimed never existed.
