    Israel recoils as US backs nuclear move

    Washington's unprecedented backing for a UN resolution for a nuclear-free Middle East that singles out Israel has both angered and deeply worried the Jewish state although officials are cagey about openly criticising their biggest ally.
    The resolution adopted by the United Nations on Friday calls on Israel to join the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and urges it to open its facilities to inspection.

    It also calls for a regional conference in 2012 to advance the goal of a nuclear-free Middle East.

    Israel is widely believed to be the only nuclear power in the Middle East, with around 200 warheads, but has maintained a policy of deliberate ambiguity about its capabilities since the mid-1960s.

    The document, which singles out Israel but makes no mention of Iran's controversial nuclear programme, drew a furious reaction from the Jewish state who decried it as "deeply flawed and hypocritical."

    Can someone PLEASE explain to me the reasoning behind ****ting on Israel? I'm just not getting it here.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I actually support it.
    Obama knew very well that such a decision couldn't really hope to effect Israel beyond its political meaning, since Israel is not signed on the NPT and is not bound by its decisions.
    He has adapted the decision because he knew that it's a major advancement against Iran, even though it didn't mention Iran at all.
    Besides, he has offered his deep apology to Israel for the decision and has stated that he completely opposes the isolation of Israel in the document, and that apology was accepted by the Israeli government.

    That being said, the countries that were pushing towards that wording are a bunch of hypocrite countries that were motivated by obvious political agenda.
    Israel is the only country that they have mentioned, even though it is known that Pakistan possesses nuclear weapons.

    Well that makes as much sense as taking the guns out of the hands of honest citizens, then apologizing to them for not getting the guns from the criminals.

    But the document is mainly an advancement against Iran, which justifies the sacrafice of Israel's interests by Obama.

    Re: Israel recoils as US backs nuclear move

    So a Nuke free Middle East means we are shifting on Israel? They have to abide by all rules not just the ones they like to enforce. The world is opening up to the fact that Israel can't play the victim card anymore with this new action that they took against a peaceful flotilla for humanitarian aid that gives people more power to lay suctions against Israel for not obeying the law. A nuke free Middle east means every one also not just ISRAEL, since they can't use them respectably than I say we should take there toys away from them.

    lol good luck getting israel to abide. them having nukes is the only reason that the arabs can't invade and the jewish state knows this. They are not about to give up on the only weapon that keeps them alive among a 500 million muslims in the mideast, they don't care what we say, nor should they, being a soverign nation and all.

    A bit of political misdirection here, and the target is not actually Israel. Pretty smart move, if you ask me.

    Note that Israel is the honest citizen, Iran is the criminal....... how can the document be an "advancement against Iran“? Do you think that if Israel gives up their nuclear umbrella Iran will give up their efforts to obtain Nukes?.... Really?

    I already said that I think it's a very hypocritical and agenda-motivated wording.
    However Israel will not be bound by the decision and has no reason to comply with it, so there wouldn't be a real issue.

    Don't get me wrong, I wasn't attacking your analysis, I was attacking this stupid administrations dirty deed.
