The U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved a resolution Monday calling on Israel to quickly open its nuclear program for inspection and backing a high-level conference to ban nuclear weapons from the Middle East which was just cancelled.
All the Arab nations and Iran had planned to attend the conference in mid-December in Helsinki, Finland, but the United States announced on Nov. 23 that it wouldn't take place, citing political turmoil in the region and Iran's defiant stance on nonproliferation. Iran and some Arab nations countered that the real reason for the cancellation was Israel's refusal to attend.
The resolution, approved by a vote of 174-6 with 6 abstentions, calls on Israel to join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty "without further delay" and open its nuclear facilities to inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Those voting "no" were Israel, the U.S., Canada, Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Palau.
Resolutions adopted by the 193-member General Assembly are not legally binding but they do reflect world opinion and carry moral and political weight.
Israel refuses to confirm or deny it has nuclear bombs though it is widely believed to have a nuclear arsenal. It has refused to join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, or NPT, along with three nuclear weapon states — India, Pakistan and North Korea.
Great post.......as usual!
Here we go again! We've demanded Iran join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, and the World expects that now,... after Palestine has complaint about israel's Nuclear facility and after now that Palestine is an official intermediate Statehood, that Israel open their Nuclear facility doors to World scrutiny, like everyone else has done in the past.
Yes, israeli jews being held accountable was/is a must thing to do, until we step in on behalf of this jew Terrorizing and Tyrannical Israel's Rogue Regime and postponed jewish destiny.
By us defending Israel's jew terror and letting jews be defiant to USA and all the International rules and regulations of the World, makes us liable for their acts of Terrorism, which we brought other Nation down for.
Israel's non-compliance is why 99 percent of the World's Nation have turned their back on USA puppet leaders, who are endorsers of Zion's Hypocrisy, thus leaving the front door to our Nation's Security opened for "new" Jew Jonathan Pollack traitors and pro-War Crime fugitives Netanyahu acts and look alikes, that are treasonous subverting renegades to our foreign policies.
Zionism/Communism will be our destruction, if we don't have someone strong and un-genuflecting to Jew"s Zionism agendas in the halls of Washington. Our system must be overhauled and Zionist must be screened under the "Patriot Act". Screening is taking place in other Nations, that must be enforced here,...in the good ole' USA.
