    Evidently the U.S. and Israel have a secret agreement that the U.S. will shield Israel's nuclear program from international scrutiny. I wonder what we got in return? Perhaps nothing.

    President Obama's efforts to curb the spread of nuclear weapons threaten to expose and derail a 40-year-old secret U.S. agreement to shield Israel's nuclear weapons from international scrutiny, former and current U.S. and Israeli officials and nuclear specialists tell The Washington Times.

    The issue will likely come to a head when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Mr. Obama on May 18 in Washington. Mr. Netanyahu is expected to seek assurances from Mr. Obama that he will uphold the U.S. commitment and will not trade Israeli nuclear concessions for Iranian ones.

    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.

    "Universal adherence to the NPT itself, including by India, Israel, Pakistan and North Korea, ... remains a fundamental objective of the United States," Ms. Gottemoeller told the meeting, according to Reuters.

    She declined to say, however, whether the Obama administration would press Israel to join the treaty.

    And in fact did just that.

    I hope the story that Israel is trying to make hydrogen bombs is true. The same number of weapons goes further, when each one is larger. It would take a half dozen of more 40-kiloton fission weapons to demolish Tehran completely, for example, while a single fusion bomb of a few megatons would do the same job. Pondering the end of Persian civilization for all time may tend to concentrate the minds of the jihadist curs who rule Iran.

    It makes no sense that we should shield Israel's nuclear weapons program when they won't stop settlement expansion when we ask them to do so. That is totally stupid on our part. I guess you can't blame them for taking advantage of us in that way tho. Why do we keep allowing such nonsense?
