Israel angered over IAEA vote on nuclear arsenal


www.presstv.ir

Israel has become infuriated by a fresh initiative of Arab member states of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which seeks to launch a global campaign to slam Israel’s possession of nuclear stockpile.

The motion tabled by 17 Arab IAEA members has been submitted to a preparatory commission to be put to vote at the Agency’s September meeting which is to be attended by 154 countries, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday.

The initiative is widely expected to be ratified, as it enjoys the support of Muslim countries as well as other states critical of Israel’s

Poor Israel can sure dish it out but can't take it when it comes to criticism of their nuclear arsenal.



Israel’s Ambassador to the IAEA Ehud Azoulay, has censured the initiative, saying the Arab nations have no moral right to point fingers.


Wow, can you say hypocrite?

These Zionists in Israel are losing their grip and it is becoming more evident as each day passes. The world has been standing up to them as of late and I hope this trend continues.

I hope this initiative of Arab states serves Israel a nice cup of shut the # up.

Yes, I know the source is Press TV, but none of the Zionist controlled outlets will dare report this, at least not in the proper context that Press TV has done.

I got a chuckle out of that.

It's a shame that the kids can't play nice together.

I wonder what the US's stance is on this. Good thing Israel isn't a signatory of the NPT, otherwise they would be facing sanctions and possibly "tactical" strikes. Double good for the US as they jump when Israel tells them to.

iran could also withdraw from the treaty and then it wouldn't have to put up with any inspections.

That would embolden the US and Israel to point their grubby fingers even harder.

They should drop out of the NPT. I mean, Israel isn't even a part of it, and the "good guys" leave them alone. Unfortunately, Iran would probably become the same as North Korea but really, they have sanctions against them anyways so whether you are a signatory of the NPT or drop out, you face sanctions if you don't "play ball".

It's a good thing they have proof of Iran's nuclear intentions.....

Here are some more mainstream media sources covering the issue.


Seattle Times

Foxnews - Israel calls Iran the greatest nuclear threat

The Arab and Israeli documents were submitted to a preparatory commission for the meeting. Arguing the Arab position, Jordanian Ambassador Makram Queisi says Israel is exposing the Middle East "to nuclear risks and threatening peace" by refusing to throw open its nuclear facilities to international purview.

Beyond his warning on Iran, Ehud Azoulay, Israel's chief IAEA delegate, questions whether Arab nations have the moral right to point fingers. He says some have "a long, unflattering history of violating their international obligations and other norms of the international community" -- an apparent poke at Syria, itself suspected of hiding a nuclear program and the target of international condemnation for atrocities attributed to government troops fighting insurgents.

I have a question. Why does Israel have a delegate at the IAEA when they are not a member and are not bound to it?

Yeah yeah whatever. For starters PressTV as a reliable and credible source? You must be joking! PressTV has less (way less) credibility than the BBC, Fox and CNN. Yeah, and that's not saying much and nothing to be proud of. If you like PressTV you support terrorism ..... fact.

Who cares! This will all blow over and business will be back to normal soon. Just because the little Terrorist runt in Iran stamps his foot? Aw Jeez! He's just not that important a person.

To all the left wing terrorist sympathisers get over yourselves.

The facts are:

1) Iran is a terrorist nation who are striving to build a nuclear weapon to destroy Israel & their allies.

2) Israel is allowed to have Nukes and Iran are not, simple. Iran cannot be trusted.

And all the left wing bitching, moaning, protest, forum and blog writing gets you no where. The people "running the show" just don't care about you or your opinion and will defend the more responsible nation of Israel's right to have nukes and stop the terrorist nation of Iran having them. Drive them into the ground and turn them into glass if required.

These are facts of life

The IAEA's annual meeting of a General Conference is composed of 151 member states, each with one vote.
Yet you ask why ISRAEL has a delegate ?

Because when you are the Bible-proclaimed "God's chosen people," you have moral authority over the whole planet. And of course this grants you rights to an unaccountable, secret nuclear weapons stockpile, too.

Hell, who can blame the IAEA? Israel is trigger happy and has an institutional political culture of victimhood, which is a dangerous combination. They think they are the only ones entitled to a nuclear stockpile in the region. What's good for the goose is good for the gander I say. Nuclear MAD (mutually assured destruction) only works if both side have the nukes.

What on earth makes you think the terrorist nation of Israel can be trusted? And prove Iran is trying to build nukes. And who said Israel has the right to possess nukes especially with their terrorist threat to use them against everyone with the Samson option. Rouge nuclear states like Israel should be stripped of their weapons even if we have to turn Israel into a parking lot doing it.

Your right Israel isn't a member so they have no right to be there. So their rep should be kicked to the curb.
