More Middle-East News

I would appreciate it if the local papers would publish more front-page articles about the situations in the Middle-East, particularly Iran’s ambitions to obtain nuclear weapons and reluctance to stop. I do not want to see a nuclear holocaust in Israel. Please help Israel survive by informing our community of what is going on between Iran, Israel, the United States, and the rest of the world.-Josue Medrano, Santa Maria
