Default Secret U.S.-Israel nuclear accord in jeopardy;

Obama is no friend to Israel - that is becoming crystal clear.

EXCLUSIVE: Secret U.S.-Israel nuclear accord in jeopardy - Washington Times

Quote:
President Obama's efforts to curb the spread of nuclear weapons threaten to expose and derail a 40-year-old secret U.S. agreement to shield Israel's nuclear weapons from international scrutiny, former and current U.S. and Israeli officials and nuclear specialists say.
Hot Air Blog Archive Obama to force Israel to give up nukes?

Quote:
The position of Israel in the Middle East is unique. They are not just simply another nation among many. They had been the one successful continuous democracy in that region, save Turkey, and quite obviously surrounded by nations explicitly threatening to annihilate them. Israel had to develop a deterrent that would keep a nation of 5 million people alive among 100 million enemies.

Blah blah blah...you want Israel held to a different standard...you don't want International Law applied to them only to other Countries.



Good for Obama if it's true...Israel is a lawless murderer who killed 500 Palestinian Children not 6 Months ago.

We (the US) should have dropped this arrogant apartheid bully state (Israel) on its bare arse long time ago. It's just we don't have any cojones anymore like our betters (like Thomas Jefferson) had when they envisioned this country. Heck, we just voted a drunk imbecile John Boehner as Speaker of the House.

And Obama is no 'tough man' He'll whimper and run to his mommy when the Israeli Bibi stomps his little feet in a tantrum. Obama is as much of an arse kisser as his predecessors.

On the one hand, you have point that Israel should be held to the same standard as the rest of the world. But on the other hand, Israel is surrounded by enemies who are bent on Israel's destruction which is not the case for most of the rest of the world.

The Palestinians terrorists are lawless murderers of Israeli citizens including children since the establishment of Israel in 1948. So Israel has been forced to defend itself against them.

I think your point about Israel is completely invalid. Israel is not a bully. It is only protecting itself from a group of people that are bent on its destruction.

What good is a deterrent if it is a secret? It is time to let the Likkud Party know that they have used up all their favors and can now run on their own. I am tired of the Likkud Party being the tail that wags the US dog.

Israel is one nation among many. It is not above international law. Good for Obama although I doubt he has the guts to actually follow through.

Imagine if this started a precedent, and secret agreements involving the U.S. and who knows how many other nations started becoming general knowledge? Great cooga mooga! How is the government expected to function if it can't keep secrets?!
