North Korea and Israel share a history. Decades ago, Israel felt the need for a deterrent, a defensive nuclear arsenal because of concern over hostile neighbors. They tested and developed nuclear rockets in north Africa and today are perhaps the third or fourth most powerful nuclear nation in the world.

Today North Korea is closely following Israel — only doing their testing at home. While demanding respect they are only getting threats. They want the same respect we give Israel today, respect that would relieve the tension that now grips the region.
