Israel Recoils As
U.S. Backs Nuclear Move
Editorial - May 31st, 2010 - Breitbart.com
The resolution adopted by the United Nations on Friday calls on Israel to join the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and urges it to open its facilities to inspection.
It also calls for a regional conference in 2012 to advance the goal of a nuclear-free Middle East.
Israel is widely believed to be the only nuclear power in the Middle East, with around 200 warheads, but has maintained a policy of deliberate ambiguity about its capabilities since the mid-1960s.
The document, which singles out Israel but makes no mention of Iran's controversial nuclear programme, drew a furious reaction from the Jewish state who decried it as "deeply flawed and hypocritical."
But it was U.S. backing for the resolution which has caused the most consternation among Israeli officials and commentators, who interpreted the move as "a resounding slap around the face" which has dealt a very public blow to Israel's long-accepted policy of nuclear ambiguity.
Barack Obama has become one of the most aggressive proponents of gutting western nuclear capability, both American and Israeli. To what purpose? Only an idiot would doubt that it is consistent with his belief that America is the prime evil in the world. The weaker the west is, the greater the chance that Obama can force America to join a global government that will "protect" America by global unity.
Does Obama not give any credence to the fact that Iran has repeatedly threatened to nuke Tel Aviv, while Israel has never made threats against its neighbors?
I call Obama's global government goal "global idiocy", but who am I to doubt the man who can heal the oceans by his victory in a political campaign.
