Rouhani Points Fingers at Israel, HPers Don't Understand NPT

Iranian president Rouhani, in a not at all suspicious move, pointed the finger at Israel for not signing the 1979 nuclear non-proliferation treaty. The Huffington Post leaped on this news, of course, and its readership began posting it up. Specifically, they started whining about how Israel could hold Iran accountable for a promise Iran made, seeing as how Israel did not make the same promise. In other words, appalling amounts of ignorance towards the NPT and Israel appeared in the comments section, as well as typical attacks on Israel's existence and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

The fact that Iran should be held accountable for the promises Iran itself made never even occurs to the posters, who seek any opportunity to bash Israel. Like trained monkeys jumping up and dancing at the master's call.
