Letter: Islamic bomb

The Independent Online
Sir: The first nuclear bombs, dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were, although largely developed by Jewish scientists, "Christian" bombs. Almost immediately an atheist Russian bomb was developed, later a Jewish bomb. Last month the world learnt of a Hindu bomb.

It is only when Pakistan, a predominantly Muslim country, joins the mad world of "mutually assured destruction" that a draconian and all-embracing embargo is slapped on the country - led by the country that began the madness. Is this about nuclear lunacy - or the fact that it is Islamic nuclear lunacy?
