Can We Trust This Man With Nuclear Weapons?

A nuclear-free Middle East is the only sane solution.

Israel’s secretive possession of dozens of nuclear weapons is becoming increasingly uncomfortable for occupants of the region. In recent events, the state has revealed an aggressive and irrational streak operating at the heart of its politics.

This Middle East nuclear double standard needs to end. It is unreasonable to condemn Iran’s overt nuclear ambitions on the one hand, while supporting Israel’s secretive possession of nukes on the other.

A nuclear-free Middle East is the only sane solution for the region. And it is the only way to stop the ongoing conflict from spiraling out of control.

Send an email to President Obama telling him that as part of his strategy for a nuclear-free world you want him to start with a nuclear-free Middle East.

That is exactly what I thought when I read this article. I feel like this article was very dichotomous in the sense that it reduced the meaning of the Middle East into one, generalized idea (using one person and one question). Reader's are framed to point fingers at the Middle East, causing them to ignore problems that are occurring elsewhere.
Nuclear weapons are dangerous, end of story. Put into the hands of the wrong person, they are even more dangerous, however, to direct an audience's attention towards a specific country and generalize it in such a way that frames readers to ignore other people from around the world, is biased and inaccurate. You cannot label an entire country or use a country to label a person who lives within it.
