You can't handle the truth

The Israel and U.S. delegations walked out of the United Nations' disarmament forum in Geneva, Switzerland yesterday after Iran said Israel was the "real source of nuclear danger in the Middle East" and had a "dark record of crimes."

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki told the Conference on Disarmament that Israel's nuclear weapons posed a "uniquely grave threat to regional and international peace and security" requiring action by the international community.

A U.S. spokeswoman in Geneva confirmed the walk-out and called Mottaki's remarks "outrageous and divisive" at a time the forum was trying to find common ground on global arms issues. (Source)
Yes, how "outrageous" to take note of the face that the only country in the region which possesses nuclear weapons (and not just a few, but hundreds) is also a country which has repeatedly launched attacks on neighboring countries, and continues to occupy not only Palestinian land but Syrian as well (and parts of Lebanon? not sure). Yeah, wouldn't want to stick around to face that truth, while you're trying to convince the world that it's Iran, who possesses no nuclear weapons and has attacked no one, who needs to be sanctioned.
