Nuclear Bully

Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel--the Middle East's only nuclear power and non-signer of the NPT--naturally calls the Iran nuclear deal "a historic mistake, and the world has become a more dangerous place."But at least President Shimon said  morning that "this is an interim deal, and its fallout and continuation can only be discussed according to results and not according to words alone."  Despite media expectations, Iranian leader Khameini has praised the deal.  Here's full NYT piece collecting anti-deal comments from top Israelis.  Full of bluster and veiled threats about maybe striking Iran on their own.  And this:
“If five years from now a nuclear suitcase explodes in New York or Madrid, it will be because of the deal that was signed this morning,” the economic minister, Naftali Bennett, said in a statement.
I'm sure we'll get apologies tomorrow from Bill Keller and Nick Kristof of the NYT and other liberals for urging bombing Syria two months ago--which would have also killed (besides a lot of civilians) any Iran deal.  Of course, we should also recall that Obama, too, planned to bomb but was deterred by popular protest, and then had courage to change his mind.

We won't even mention the many pundits and congress members who often seem more pro-Israel than pro-America.

Keeping our child's safety is a must, we should constantly make sure that wherever or whenever they are they are consistently safe and secure like when they are in our home. This government's plan is a great way of helping us parents to ensure that our children are always in good hands, especially when we are not in our children's side, where we're not there to protect them from any harm or danger. It should be great that this particular policy would be implemented by our government. As a parent, I always make sure that I provide additional protection on my child, I downloaded a definite safety application on his phone, which he can use whenever he is in emergency, with just a click on a panic button it could create a conference call to a 24/7 call center, a safety network and could escalate a call to a nearest 911 if it's a real emergency, it is best for parents who are unable to manage their time, check this site out for more information http://safekidzone.com/#!/page_home. Hope this will help us a lot.
