UN Demands Nuclear Inspections in Israel

The UN General Assembly approved a resolution on Monday by a vote of 174-6 that would require Israel to open its nuclear program to inspection “without further delay.” The only countries voting against it were the U.S., Canada, Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Palau.

And the animus toward Israel doesn’t stop there; the UN also wants to convene a meeting to ban nuclear weapons from the Middle East, which would leave Israel vastly outnumbered and essentially helpless against the Islamic hordes wishing to eradicate it.

There was supposed to be a similar meeting this month in Helsinki, Finland, with all the Arab states and Iran in attendance, but the U.S. turned it down, supposedly because of the trouble in the Middle East and Iran’s intransigence on nuclear weaponry. Israel has never confirmed that it possesses nuclear weapons and has never joined the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), but then, neither have India, Pakistan, and North Korea, all of which possess nuclear weapons.

Iranian diplomat Khodadad Seifi hissed, “The truth is that the Israeli regime is the only party which rejected to conditions for a conference.” He vented that there should be “strong pressure on that regime to participate in the conference without any preconditions.”
