A month-long review conference on the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) began on Monday with a predictable target: Israel
As the only Middle Eastern country armed with nuclear weapons, Israel has been treated as a political sacred cow, one whose weapons programs have not been publicly challenged either by the United States or Western powers.
But on Monday, an overwhelming majority of UN member states - 118 out of 192 - wanted the defiant Jewish state to come clean with its nuclear weapons program and sign the NPT, which is aimed at halting the spread of these devastating armaments.
Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa said the fact that Israel has refused to sign and ratify the NPT has resulted in the continued exposure of non-nuclear weapon states of the region to nuclear threats by the only country possessing these weapons of mass destruction.
Israel, he warned, has also unleashed risks associated with the operation of "unsafeguarded nuclear facilities and activities of unknown safety standards".
Worse still, Israel has also implicitly triggered the threat of a nuclear arms race of "a catastrophic regional and international potential"
"This situation is unsustainable," as it also jeopardizes the implementation of the 1995 resolution calling for the creation of a nuclear-weapons-free zone (NWFZ) in the Middle East, Natalegawa warned.
Now who can argue with that rational analysis?
Why the US, France, Britain and of course Canada.
"Delegates from the US, Britain and France have walked out of a nuclear non-proliferation conference at the UN general assembly in New York after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran’s president, criticised nuclear weapon states."That would be Israel.
I guess anything these countries have to say on the subject can be ignored, since they chose not to be fully informed and have already demonstrated their bias.
You can watch the video of this childish behaviour here.
Are these people really representing the best interests of their countries and world peace?
Or do their interests lie elsewhere?
There behaviour is certainly indicative of another kind of loyalty.
Oh, and I want to note the spin from the CBC report. A picture of an empty room? When was it taken? Who really knows? Is it used to paint a certain picture in your mind. One of the world at odds with Iran? Remember main stream media is always about perception management or mind control.
How does that image contradict the reporting from Asia? Where we have a speech from Malaysia and 118 of 192 countries wanting Israel to come clean.
How does that image of the empty room and empty claims even line up with this interview?
BOLTON: ... so it was pretty much everybody else. (everybody else STAYED) And I think that shows what moral equivalence really is, that somebody like Ahmadinejad can come to the United Nations, a denier of the Holocaust, a man leading a government violating multiple Security Council resolutions, and he not only gets a respectful but a warm greeting from, basically, the states party to the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. (Bolton is such a spin doctor)
VAN SUSTEREN: When you think of the small percentage of people who walked out, which, essentially, the balance sort of, I think, endorsed him, and the whole point is -- of this whole meeting was to talk about the -- about the treaty and whether it should be revised or amended, and it seems they -- they were quite willing to embrace him.
Anyway- here is the speech that these few shameful political types couldn't be bothered to do their job and listen too- the job they are well paid for by taxpayers world wide.
OH and one more thing! An update for yesterday's post, with much thanks to Peter at Europe's Crowned Bloodsuckers.
When I had referred to SITE Intelligence, with comment perhaps I should have been clearer? Peter had this very relevant article linked at his blog, which lays out the agenda of SITE quite well and should clarify my commentary.
TIMES SQUARE BOMB HOAX, ISRAELI INTEL GROUP SHOWS IT’S HAND
Who would have believed it? Only days after a warning of an Israeli “false flag” bombing against the US “in the works” a massive car bomb is discovered in Time Square! Better yet, though no intelligence organization in the world could discover anyone claiming responsibility for this embarrassing failure, SITE Intelligence, a group rumored as the “voice of the Mossad” has placed the blame on the Pakistani Taliban.worth a read!
This is the same group that has come up with numerous bin Laden “audio” tapes, seemingly, though tiny and nearly totally unstaffed, whenever it is convenient for Israel to point a finger at someone, magically Site Intelligence, run by former IDF soldier Rita Katz, whose father was executed as a spy by Saddam Hussein, makes another “unbelievable” intelligence find.
Site Intelligence finds are not only timely for Israel, when the world is focused on claims they have been planning a ‘dirty bomb’ attack to send the US to war against Iran, but always tend to support mysterious organizations run from the caves of the Afghanistan/Pakistan border region.
