U.S. policy on nuclear Iran underscores
bias toward Israel

 



Friday, May 14, 2010


Israel more than just "complicates efforts against Iran," [Fine Print, May 4];
it makes painfully clear the U.S. government’s utter hypocrisy when it
comes to tackling anything to do with Israel, including its nuclear
weapons. And the Obama administration has shown no change in the
long-biased American policy favoring Israel and in fact is willing to
reward its obvious nuclear intransigence.


With more than 200 nuclear weapons and the capacity to deliver them
against its enemies or use them to buttress its policies, Israel refuses
to join the Non-Proliferation Treaty or to open its nuclear facilities
for International Atomic Energy
Agency
inspection. On the other hand, Israel and the United States
insist on applying the harshest possible sanctions against Iran, which
they fear may be developing nuclear weapons. The United States
furthermore is responding to a regional initiative to make the Middle
East a zone free of weapons of mass destruction by linking it to progress in the peace process, which means a peace
customized by and suited especially to meet Israel’s interests,
naturally, because Israel is the sole nuclear power in the region.


In promoting this deal, imposed by a nuclear Israel on a much weaker
region, the United States is affirming that it certainly pays to be a
nuclear power — you get things done on your terms — and providing
further incentive and determination to other Mideast countries to seek
to achieve that same prize
.
