Question 1:

Presumably you have no need actually to provide a link to the relevant article:

You can read the context here.

Context is such a pest. It always ruins our nice comfortable prejudices, I find.

Re Question 7: the question shows the Jews of Britain, once again, exactly the kind of country they are living in.

What I find so ironic is that the people who attempt to delegitimise Israel are the very reason why Israel exists in the first place.

Sixty years since Britain turned her back on the victims of the Holocaust and so many of her citizens have learned absolutely nothing.

Why Israel needs nuclear weapons

Here the president of Iran calls openly for the destruction of Israel

http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1129540603434&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull

And if Israel should not have nuclear weapons, please explain to me why Britain and France with their track records (Dresden, Vichy, Algeria, Vietnam, Hiroshima, post-war Palestine, Iraq, Serbia, Afghanistan, Falklands) should be allowed to possess them?

The fact of the matter is that the gentile objects to the Jew defending himself. Not that the gentile himself would ever lift a finger if the Jew were under threat.

Mr. Clark asked:

7. Which is the only country in the Middle East to possess Weapons of Mass Destruction?
(a) Iran
(b) Syria
(c) Saudi Arabia
(d) Israel

At a minimum, this is imprecise and misleading. [Weapons of Mass Destruction] is generally accepted to mean nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons. Because manufacturing a "physics package" is a non-trivial exercise, some people add "radiological" to cover the possibility of "dirty bombs"

The Syrian regime openly maintains a massive chemical weapons arsenal and continues to develop additional offensive chemical weapons capabilities. The Syrian regime is free to do so because it chose not to sign the Chemical Weapons Convention.

Israel is widely believed to have an arsenal of nuclear weapons, but has never officially confirmed this. Here again, Israel is free to do so because it chose not to sign the NPT.

The question as phrased omits Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Jordan, and all the other "Middle Eastern" countries.

The question as phrased omits overtly nuclear-armed Pakistan which is not a Middle-Eastern country but her weapons scientists were busily proliferating WMD technology to countries they regarded as sympathetic.

If one rephrases Mr. Clark's question to:

7. Which of the Middle-eastern countries listed below is widely believed to possess nuclear weapons.
(a) Iran
(b) Syria
(c) Saudi Arabia
(d) Israel

The answer is (d) Israel. It is widely believed that Israel possesses nuclear weapons. While many will find this disquieting, even alarming; it is perfectly legal for Israel to possess these weapons. The other three countries named in the question are signatories to a treaty obliging them not to possess nuclear weapons. It remains to be seen whether the present regime in Iran feels bound by a treaty signed by the monarchy deposed by the present regime. There is ample evidence that the present Iranian regime does not feel obliged to honour the treaty, preferring instead to go nuclear and achieve a similar degree of impunity to North Korea.
