Israel and Obama at the Nuclear Security Summit


 

Watching Obama giving his little speech in South Korea regarding North Korea. The background is, of course, the 2012 Nuclear Security Summit.  The speech itself is hardly worth noting and it was the array of flags at the conference centre that caught my attention. There flattering away, stuck somewhere in between and behind the Saudi Arabic script on a green background and the red, gold and black of Germany, was the star of David and that had me hitting the search engines. Is Israel attending? After all, I do remember that Netanyahu canceled his plans to attend the Nuclear Security summit meeting in Washington in 2010.

Well, the reason for the cancellation then according to the Israeli media was that “the prime minister feared that Muslim states were planning on using the occasion to raise the question of Israel’s nuclear arsenal.” Therefore, there was me hitting the search engines and discovering that:

“Israel’s Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor arrived at Incheon International Airport on March 25, 2012 to attend the Nuclear Security Summit. The summit will take place from March 26-27 to discuss ways to counter nuclear terrorism, with representatives from 53 nations and four international organizations, including 44 heads of state, set to attend.”

This really does have to be some sort of bad joke. There we have the United States with thousands of nuclear warheads, there we have the United States who is the only country in the world to have used a nuclear weapon, talking about the threat that what is effectively a third world country might pose, and there  we have Israel with some 400 nuclear weapons and just itching to attack Iran, which in all probability doesn’t even have one nuclear warhead, participating in a security conference. You would want to laugh if it weren’t so tragic.

Therefore, we should at least ask the question; what’s it really all about? Well, that is why the little video has been attached to this post and Stephen Lendman’s answer to that question appears to be, “China, China, China.”

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
