IAEA Now Eyes Israel... Again

It seems we are having a deja vu of what happened last year. Israel is now being put on the ropes again by the IAEA. It is becoming clear that this Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Conference is only being used as a ploy to lure in countries for a so-called formal talk and then show its original agenda. The strategy seems to come here with the so-called intention of talking about the urgency of Iran as a nuclear power and then as the day goes by, point at the whole Middle East as a region in danger of being engaged in a nuclear arms war. Then the talk is quickly transfixed on just one country, a country which is not even a member of the NPT.

On Wednesday, The Associated Press disclosed that International Atomic Energy Agency chief Yukiya Amano had sent a letter soliciting proposals from the agency's 151 member states on how to persuade Israel to sign the treaty. And the world's five recognized nuclear-weapons powers — the U.S., Russia, Britain, France and China — reaffirmed the goal of a nuclear-free Middle East.

The IAEA should solve the immediate danger first of rogue nations Iran and North Korea having nuclear weapons. They should listen to the threats of Iran against Israel and the United States and how disastrous it would be for everyone if Iran has nuclear weapons. Israel, though not a member of the NPT, has not threatened anyone with weapons, is a democracy and since it is a prosperous nation, it will not have any benefit from any form of war. The IAEA has admitted that Iran is not in compliance with the IAEA. How can it have the credibility to make this world safe from nuclear weapons when it cannot even control its own backyard.
