Joe Lauria, United Nations correspondent for the Wall Street Journal , talks about Egyptian President Morsi's speech to the United Nations General Assembly.
How about a North American Nuclear Free zone? The US has 5,600 warheads but Cuba and the other Latin American states have none. Should the US open up its nuclear facilities to IAEA inspections?
If Israel has nukes, it's only because the Muslim world refuses to recognize and accept a Jewish state and works for its elimination. Once the Muslim countries recognize the Jewish state, there can quickly be disarmament talks about reducing and possibly eliminating all weapons in the Middle East.
Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood is very clever. When terrorism was defeated, the Brotherhood decided on a "charm offensive" to charm their way into power. The terroristic methods of the Jihad has failed, so time to use more charming methods. But the goal of eventually implementing Sharia law is always the end goal regardless of the tactics used, terroristic or charming.
Even if Egypt Has those laws against films or press inciting riot etc, I doubt the death penalty by mob is the rule of law. Sticks n stones may break my bones but words should never by a premise for killing...
