In its ongoing action of “Chemists Against Chemical Weapons”, Prof. David Cole-Hamilton, EuChemS President, and Prof. Ehud Keinen, President of the Israel Chemical Society have recently authored an article about why ratifying the Chemical Weapons Convention is in Israel’s best interest.
As they clearly put it, “Chemical weapons have no place in a civilised society. They have little to no use as a tactical deterrent, and their effects are indiscriminate and appalling. We have a unique opportunity to rid the world of this scourge, and we’re so close to doing so. It’s high time Israel joined the rest of the world.”
