Instead of curtailing the running programs, Iran banks on Western corporate interest, invites companies to build nuclear plants. Light-water reactors, commonly deemed peaceful, can produce weapons-grade plutonium if stopped every few months for cleaning.

Ethnic-blind Israel hosts 1,425,000 Arabs, 280,000 official Slavs and estimated 200,000 with fake Jewish papers, 70,000 migrant workers. The official number of 5,415,000 Jews must be reduced by at least 200,000 who forged birth certificates in Russia.
