Nuclear Weapons Maneuvers in Egypt

Last November, the U.N atomic watchdog has discovered plutonium particles near an Egyptian nuclear facility and is trying to determine if they are evidence of a secret weapons program or simply the byproduct of peaceful research.

In response to the international community concerns, yesterday the world's nuclear watchdog (IAEA) asked Egypt to sign a treaty banning the testing of nuclear weapons, meaning that the investigations results were negative.

Egypt's foreign minister has turned down the request saying Israel should first join a separate agreement calling for a halt to the spread of atomic bombs.

Israel went through two key wars in its history, the 1967 and 1973 wars, and did not use any nuclear weapons that it has acquired in 1963 if I am right. Above all Israel owns weapons of mass destruction and other complicated biological and nuclear weapons in which I m not the expert to mention.

However, Egypt’s regime secretly helped Iraqi dictator Saddam to develop chemical weapons that was the reason of killing thousands of Innocent Iraqis, Kurds and Iranians.

I am not saying that Israel should keep the right of testing or having nuclear weapons. I am saying that the Egyptian regime is not supposed to justify its secret collaborations with dictatorships to exterminate innocent people, which I call crimes, or secretly testing nuclear weapons by saying Israel should give up first. Egypt should not be in a position to weigh itself with Israel cause the Israeli citizen has the right to choose and he/she is part of the decision-making process in his/her country and me as an Egyptian citizen, I am deprived of choosing. Hence I take the chance to thank the international community represented in IAEA for trying to ensure that the Egyptian regime is not developing nuclear weapons for my own personal safety and other innocents who might be in danger.

And since I have little right here to express myself, I ask the Egyptian regime to sign this treaty cause I do not really trust what they can do with us cause the regime does not consult us.

The good news is that the Egyptian regime has said hundreds of "No" to many things that ended with a "Yes". Let's wait and see.

IAEA should not only disallow Egypt to build nuclear weapons but also ask israel to halt its building of nuclear weapons to keep harmony in the region. Egypt may agree to IAEA but would start building it very soon, secretly. This area is highly sensitive and nobody in this region should be allowed to have nuclear or dangerous weapons.
