Это критически важно

In a meeting with, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu obtained President Obama's guarantee that the White House would continue a 4-decade-old secret deal to allow Israel keep a nuclear arsenal without opening it to international inspections, The Washington Times reported on Friday quoting officials familiar with the matter

This is a critically important move, because it absolutely pulls the rug out from any possible true non-proliferation in the Middle East.

You cannot talk about non-proliferation with a straight face while Israel maintains a sizable nuclear arsenal.

And secondly, this "dispensation" by Obama, and other presidents before him, is illegal, according to the statutes of the Symington Amendment, which states in no uncertain terms that the US shall provide no aid to countries which develop nuclear weapons, and refuse to sign the NPT.

Israel has nuclear weapons; there is nothing "alleged" about it, and there is no ambiguity. As reported in

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2006/dec/13/israel

"Israel's prime minister, Ehud Olmert, was yesterday trying to fend off accusations of ineptitude and calls for his resignation after he accidentally acknowledged for the first time that Israel had nuclear weapons.

"After decades in which Israel has stuck to a doctrine of nuclear ambiguity, Mr Olmert let slip during an interview in Germany that Israel did indeed have weapons of mass destruction."

'He told Germany's Sat.1 channel on Monday evening: "Iran, openly, explicitly and publicly, threatens to wipe Israel off the map. Can you say that this is the same level, when they are aspiring to have nuclear weapons, as America, France, Israel and Russia?" '

So there you have it, right out of the mouth of Israel's former Prime Minister.

Even former President Jimmy Carter has confirmed this, as reported in:

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/middle_east/article4004300.ece

"Israel has 150 nuclear weapons in its arsenal, former President Jimmy Carter said yesterday, while arguing that the US should talk directly to Iran to persuade it to drop its nuclear ambitions."

So the bottom line here is that Obama continues to lie about the absolute reality of Israel's nuclear arsenal so that US checks and military aid keep flowing to Israel

...while US infrastructure crumbles, and homeless Vets sleep on our streets.
