Though I was accused of being a bigot for saying that the first thing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) needs to do to show their legitimacy is to choose a director without the name "Mohammed", it turns out that I was right.
Instead of admitting the threat Iran's nuclear capability represents to the world, IAEA's current director, Mohamed ElBaradei, claims that "Israel is the number threat to the Middle East". I kid you not.

UN's El Baradei: "Israel Is Number One Threat to Middle East"
"The top nuclear inspector at the UN does not believe that Iran is the number one threat in the Middle East.
He says Israel is the number one threat.
China View reported, via Free Republic:
'Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohamed ElBaradei said Sunday that "Israel is number one threat to Middle East" with its nuclear arms, the official IRNA news agency reported.
At a joint press conference with Iran's Atomic Energy Organization chief Ali Akbar Salehi in Tehran, ElBaradei brought Israel under spotlight and said that the Tel Aviv regime has refused to allow inspections into its nuclear installations for 30years, the report said.
"Israel is the number one threat to the Middle East given the nuclear arms it possesses," ElBaradei was quoted as saying.
Israel is widely assumed to have nuclear capabilities, although it refuses to confirm or deny the allegation.
"This (possession of nuclear arms) was the cause for some proper measures to gain access to its (Israel's) power plants ... and the U.S. president has done some positive measures for the inspections to happen," said ElBaradei.
ElBaradei arrived in Iran Saturday for talks with Iranian officials over Tehran's nuclear program.'"
