Chutzpah, thy name is Shaul Mofaz

So let me get this straight. The Deputy Prime Minister of Israel is demanding the resignation of Mohamed ElBaradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, on the grounds that he has taken an insufficiently tough line over Iran's non-existent nuclear weapons programme (known to be non-existent because the IAEA have inspected Iran's nuclear facilities).

This would be the Deputy PM of a country which not only has nuclear weapons but has refused to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty or to permit any inspection of its facilities whatsoever (and which continues its vicious persecution of the only one of its citizens with both the knowledge and the guts to blow the whistle on its illegal WMD programme, and indeed of any journalist brave enough to defy Israeli government censorship and report on it).

I have heard of the pot calling the kettle black, but this, surely, is the toilet calling the operating theatre unhygienic.
