Co�teaux: “Give French nukes to Arabs.”

A translation by The Dissident Frogman reveals that Paul Marie Coûteaux (a French politician in the European Parliament) has gone on the record and urged France to give nuclear weapons to Arab regimes:

“I have no hesitation in saying that we must consider giving the Arab side a large enough force, including a large enough nuclear force, to persuade Israel that it cannot simply do whatever it wants. That is the policy my country pursued in the 1970s when it gave Iraq a nuclear force.”

I suppose this twit Coûteaux thinks Israel would sit idly by and let the Arabs get their hands on French nukes. Somehow, I doubt it.
