Israel becomes CERN nuclear group member


www.rawstory.com

JERUSALEM (AFP) – Israel's cabinet on Sunday announced it had approved the country's membership in the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, becoming the research group's first non-European delegation.

"Israel is joining an exclusive club, which provides unusual visibility, exposure, prestige and international status," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in announcing the cabinet decision.

He said membership in the organisation, known as CERN, reflected the "capabilities of Israeli scientists and constitutes recognition of their ability."

Not sure what this means , but I would be very interested to hear your thoughts on this announcement .

Myself , I don't buy that it's just a matter of Israel receiving " recognition " but more to the issue of what this new found status will allow there scientists access to . Who knows , this new membership might even grant them funding and development investment .

Your thoughts ?

aside from militarism, Israel does put it's money in the right areas
The U.S., militarism aside, can learn alot from them.

However out of all the regions in the world the country or state or wtv you want to call it that receives the most money but does not really need it is Israel, that's only my opinion if anyone has stats proving otherwise please refute me.

So funding is an issue, where will it come from
And yes of course it's not international status as well

For example there are areas in arunachal pradesh, India that is a disputed region between India and China.
The region rightly belongs to India, but if you look at the region that is on the indian side and the region that China says is on their side the differences are quite visible.
China has invested in that territory and India has not, this fuels China's argument that it should belong to them.

This is somewhat similar to Israel joining CERN, being a member of this group of scientists gives a certain facade of civility, and that's definitely a facade that Israel can use.

Israel is accepted into this organization without ever signing the NPT. Does anyone else see a problem here besides me?

ah HAHA
nice catch

CERN = European Council for NUCLEAR Research
cdsweb.cern.ch...

But whatever, Obama says we shouldn't speak on the matter

US President Barack Obama warned Tuesday that attempts to single out Israel over its undeclared nuclear program could scupper a Middle East regional nuclear conference planned for 2012

It's funny that the media isn't even talking about the question you just raised
Yes, this is very concerning

All the while claiming that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons.
If Iran has any sense they will develop nuclear weapons as a matter of urgency.
The reason Iraq was invaded and now Libya, is the same reason that N korea is untouched, nuclear weapons.

CERN has nothing to do with nuclear weapons. Israel (while yes receiving much funding) DOES have some of the top and most brilliant scientists in the world. The US may fund a lot of Israele programs but fact is, Israel does things with their research that even the US cant do.

So not a country but a state is able to do more than the country that financially supports it?

Nothing they dont already have access to. CERN is funded by more than jsut a few countries, and currently has scientists representing over 160 countries. Its a collabrative group effort and nothing more, and allows Isreal access to the same information that South Africa, Canada, France, China, Nigeria, Bahrain etc have.

Absolutely.... Its cvalled political will as well as a different set of views by the populace. You have heard the phrase all politics are local?

This looks like a pretty blatant admission, once again, that Israel has been tinkering with nuclear reactions despite a UN ban on any such development in the Middle East.


When Iran was accused of developing nuclear energy, oh no, we can't have that, it's against UN resolution.


Israel, on the other hand, can come out and openly talk about what they know about nuclear energy, and nobody even bats an eye. It's equally against UN resolution!


That the European organization accepted their membership is disgusting imo. Would they have accepted Iran's membership? I seriously doubt it. I don't know whether to chalk it up to racism, plain old favoritism, or what.

To me that's treason..
Obama , like many others, knows the laws in America..

It is against the law for America to supply any form of aid to a country that is nuclear armed and not a signatory to the NPT....

The American people are being lied to and robbed to support a state,by their actions are NOT entitled to any US aid..
BTW, they don't exactly need it either when their economy is in far better shape than the US..

There is a difference between Iran and Israel.

Iran is part of the IAEA
Israel is not, and therefore not subject to its guidelines.

Actually its not against the law. We supply Aid to Pakistan, as well as India. The FEderal Government has nothing to do with how the States run their own afffairs, including finiance.

Pakistan is more a bribe to let the US drone kill their civilians..
India I haven't looked into the reasons or if it's military or not but it's peanuts anyway..

Uhm ok... Your response though does not change the facts that we can deal with nations who have undeclared nuclear programs and that its not against the law.
