The furore surrounding poem about Israel's nuclear capability being a threat to worlds peace by Nobel Prize author Gunter Grass was disappointing if not predictable.
He is simply stating the obvious and if Iran or North Korea acquired WMD they would be a bigger threat to world peace than they are now.
It is not anti -Semitic to criticise Israeli defence policy. Let's face it India and Pakistan both have nuclear weapons and the world is much less safe place because of it! Are people not allowed to comment on that?
