    Actually, genome research is making it *less and less* plausible.

    but the fact that the state of Israel is - pursuing the development of weapon
    mass destruction based on the genetic make up of one ethnic group. This is not
    only morally repugnant, but also a cause of concern to the world community.

    Except that it's not a fact; it's a crazy theory with no backing

    I think it's in both your interest and also mine, that we all condemn this type of warfare and even research into it. For it would not take much real proof, however ardently you may believe it to not exist, in order to provoke a response that would
    surely be the last holocaust to befall the Jewish people. When you are playing with such a flame, the only possible outcome is self immolation.
