Obama Set to Violate US-Israel Nuclear Agreement

The Washington Times is reporting today that the Obama Administration is on the verge of violating a longstanding secret agreement between the United States and Israel with regard to Israel's nuclear weapons stockpile.

For the past 40 years, Israel and the U.S. have kept quiet about an Israeli nuclear arsenal that is now estimated at 80 to 200 weapons. Israel has promised not to test nuclear weapons while the U.S. has not pressed Israel to sign the nuclear NPT.
That changed yesterday when Assistant Secretary of State Rose Gottemoeller, speaking Tuesday at a U.N. meeting on the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), said Israel should join the treaty, which would require Israel to declare and relinquish its nuclear arsenal.

There are simply no words for how stunning this development is. Of course Israel would never agree to it, but the fact that the Obama administration would put something like that on the table is stark evidence of just how far and how quickly US-Israeli relations have plummeted since Obama has become President.

Instead of confronting the Iranian nuclear threat, Obama looked around and decided that he should confront Israel instead.

UPDAT: Sultan Knish knows what he is talking about.
Update:Obama rushes to host "Arab American Leaders" at the White House.

  1. This is beyond serious -- it's catastrophic. Most importantly it sets the tone of how the Obama administration (and all his minions) are itching to really "stick it" to Israel.

    Just after Obama was elected I read a comment that his Israel advisers, Jewish or not, had "Israel locked and loaded in their sights." If that doesn't indicate an obsession with smacking down Israel, I don't know what does. And now we are seeing the rapid beginnings of this (which had to be approved by Obama, unless he's truly incompetent -- which I don't believe, especially with Rahm Emanuel as his Chief of Staff). Rahm! How could you do this to Israel!?
