Erdogan: Israel is a nuclear threat to the Mideast

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that while the West may presume that Israel and its surrounding nations would be under threat from a nuclear-armed Iran, it is Israel that possesses nuclear weapons.
Erdogan, who made the comments in a Time magazine article published Tuesday, dismissed claims that the agreement to install NATO radar in Turkey was a response to the nuclear threat posed by Iran.
He said that the "radar system is executed under the framework of NATO obligations," and that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is not concerned with the issue.
