Hello Friends,

Well – it's all over the news – the tension on the North Korean Peninsula.

What is Israel's perspective on the situation?

Israel has long maintained that North Korean nuclear technology has made it's way to Iran and Syria – and has worried that such knowledge could make it's way into the hands of terrorist groups.

The Syrian reactor bombed a few years ago by Israel had strong resemblances to North Korean reactors.

Iran is believed to have used North Korean Engineers in the early stage development of their nuclear program.

Israel's challenge with terror groups collecting apparatus to create a weapon is real.

Israel is active both in intelligence and deterrence for such.

The good thing is that it is difficult to shop the materials needed internationally on the black market or otherwise.

Israel is pleased that Secretary of State John Kerry is in Seoul today.

It had sought international condemnation from the world community for North Korea's allowing of their nuclear knowledge to go to rouge regimes.

Israel desired to see serious repercussions leveled against Pyongyang, but it didn't happen.

Israel has trade ties with South Korea and also works within the technology market.

Israel enjoys broad support from South Korea's Christian communities and also welcomes a substantial amount of Christian Pilgrims from the country.
