      Israel never admitted to possess nuclear weapons, but nevertheless, the UNGA resolution was aimed at Israel, not Iran.

      Israel must dispose of all its nuclear weapons and place its nuclear sites under the International Atomic Energy Agency’s purview, the United Nations General Assembly’s First Committee stated in an initial 152-5 vote.

      The five nations that opposed Friday’s resolution on the “risk of nuclear proliferation in the Middle East” were: Canada, Israel, Micronesia, Palau and the United States. Another 24 countries abstained, including European Union members.

      The annual resolution submitted by Egypt to the UNGA in New York was sponsored by the Palestinian Authority and 19 counties including Bahrain, Jordan, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates.

      …snip..The resolution notes that Israel is the only country in the Middle East and one of the few among the UN’s 193 member states, which has not signed the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons Treaty (NPT).

      Jpost is quick to point the finger at Iran, who has at least signed the NPT. If Israel has nothing to hide, then why not join?

      Y’all need to take a page out of Mexico’s book. AMLO tells the Empire to fuck off at least once a month.

        doesn’t have a fraction of the spine that his old man had.

          The old man wasn’t afraid to say No to US Presidents. I also can’t imagine him seizing the bank accounts of protestors against his government’s policies.
