Israeli officials today scorned a resolution at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) calling on them to sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), insisting it was unfair to single Israel out when they aren’t the only nation on the planet that has refused to sign it.
Israel is however the only country in the Middle East with a nuclear arsenal and is also the only country in the Middle East which is not a signatory to the NPT. The effort has picked up steam with efforts to create a nuclear-free Middle East, but has been scorned by Israel and also by the Obama Administration, which despite their ostensible support for disarmament insists Israel has an inherent right to their arsenal.
But while calls for Israel to join the NPT and angry condemnations by Israeli officials are nothing new, Israeli Atomic Chief Shaul Horev made the rather unique claim that such calls violate “basic principles and norms of international law.”
Yet calls for Israel, as well as India and Pakistan to sign the NPT are quite common and there doesn’t seem to be any indication that any of this is stopping.

The u.s. government – unabashedly the #1 funder of terrorism state israel.
Now, why indeed does the world single out cry-baby Israel! Instead, disband the IAEA – and let every state develop its nuclear arsenal. Sounds fair – or, at least fairer – than letting only a select few enjoy the right. Right? Wrong! IAEA or not, you don't let the "chosen" be treated the same as the rest. Evidently, some are more equal than others. And, you thought apartheid died in South Africa!
The leadership of Israel is no better than a den of jackals and everyone in the world knows then for the scoundrels they are- and the man-on-the-street in Tel Aviv wonders why the world is coming down on his nation. Israel won't sign anything unless they're forced to, and even then they'll worm their way out of it, using the Holocaust as a blanket get-out-of-jail-free card to do whatever they like as they've always done. Israel needs to be cut off completely from any US foreign aid, period, until they knuckle under and realize they can't count on us unless they play nice. Somehow, I don't see it happening. But, since they have their own nukes, why can't they defend themselves without our billions of dollars pouring in every year? No one else has them- yet- and that's what they're afraid of. There will be a day of reckoning, and I fear Israel will be in for a very rough time of it when the rest of world has had enough of their bluster and criminal behavior.
Little Prussia on the Mediterranean can't fall fast enough for me
Not mentioned are ofcourse Israels large stores of Chemical and Biological WMD's.
One can see IDF troops with gas mask attachments on their helmets.
Geez!! who financed all these Israeli WMD's ?.
Probes into stolen US Uranium and Nuke technologies by US Israel enablers seem to go nowhere?? Pollard stole classified US targetting data.
Looks like somebody is getting ready for a serious war or Nucler blackmail.
Because there is no justification, religious or otherwise, for Israel having been formed by the strong arm of the US ,what would you expect? Even Jews say that. Israel needs a strong arm because it's morally wrong. Look, if I look to rob a bank, don't I need a "strong arm" to get the ones I'm robbing to be submissive? Has morality slipped so far from our thought process that we don't even consider it anymore? Some of this talk sounds like George Burns and Gracie Allen. Even the child said.."But the Emperor has no clothes". As we're pondering insanity, people are dying and will die.
OK, fine. I won't single out anybody. I call on ALL NATIONS that are not yet signatories to the NPT to do so, and for all current signatories to observe their obligations to secure, reduce, and eliminate their current stockpiles and to cooperate with other signatory nations in the peaceful use of nuclear technology.
There, is everybody happy now?
Why does Israel have an inherent right to their nuclear arsenal? Who said so? G-d?
because they don't have any of course
Israel is Chosen and therefore have license to kill
Has anyone checked into the Symington and Glenn Amendments to the Foreign Aid Act? It seems the US is in violation of its own laws by supporting the welfare state of isreal.
Until Israel signs the NPT they shouldnt be allowed to complain the IAEA about Irans legal Nuclear Activities, let alone what they believe are illegal activities.
Or is it Israel really doesnt have the bomb but it is an elaborate hoax to scare the Arabs into not attacking.
Verification could destroy such a rouse!
