Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has warned Israel over its saber-rattling against Iran and the obstructionism of Tel Aviv which is preventing the realization of a nuclear-free Middle East. The Middle East "no longer tolerates" any country's refusal to join the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), "especially if this is coupled with irresponsible policies or arbitrary threats", Morsi said in his address at the 67th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Wednesday. The Egyptian leader was referring to Israel's policy of ambiguity about its military nuclear activities, which has helped it procure the Mideast's only nuclear arsenal.
