Doha: So much has been said about the Iran nuclear issue at this conference (the 6th Doha Forum on Democracy Development and Free Trade) but not a word has been uttered by any speaker about Israel's nuclear capability, says a celebrated Arab journalist who is taking part in the key convention.

Abdul Bari Addwan, editor-in-chief of Al Quds Al Arabi, a prominent London-based Arabic daily, made the above comment at the forum here yesterday during a question and answer session.

Israel, said Addwan, had some 3,000 nuclear heads but nobody at this conference mentioned this, while many referred to the Iran nuke issue.

Addwan said that Israel killed 3,000 innocent people in the Palestinian territories and 'terrorism' was defined as an act of killing and torturing innocent civilians.

In self-defence, Palestinian killed 660 mostly Israeli soldiers and they included some settlers, he said.

Present at the session on 'enhancing democracy and combating terrorism' was the First Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister, H E Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem bin Jabor Al Thani. He said: "For the first time I agree with you".
