UN demands nuclear inspections in Israel
From Jihad Watch / Posted by Robert Spencer
The UN is increasingly a tool of the global jihad. With cynical and brazen hypocrisy, it has been relentlessly criticizing Israel for years, while turning a blind eye to the human rights abuses that are sanctioned by Islamic law and common in Muslim states. The U.S. and all free countries should have left it long, long ago.
"UN Demands Nuclear Inspections in Israel," by William Bigelow for Breitbart, December 6 (thanks to Choi):
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."
Israeli diplomat Isi Yanouka defended Israel, noting that Iran and Syria are not exactly friendly neighbors: "All these cases challenge Israel's security and cast a dark shadow at the prospect of embarking on a meaningful regional security process. The fact that the sponsors include in this anti-Israeli resolution language referring to the 2012 conference proves above all the ill-intent of the Arab states with regard to this conference."
In a stunning display of the moral equivalence at the UN, Syrian diplomat Abdullah Hallak told the UN that Syria was furious that the Helsinki conference was postponed because of "the whim of just one party, a party with nuclear warheads. We call on the international community to put pressure on Israel to accept the NPT, get rid of its arsenal and delivery systems, in order to allow for peace and stability in our region.”
Although the Obama Administration voted against the resolution as a whole, they voted for two paragraphs stipulating that all nations on earth adhere to the NPT and assert that countries that don’t adhere to it ratify the NPT at “the earliest date.” Only Israel and India objected. Guess which two countries are the most threatened by Islamic neighbors?...
