Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and President Obama agrees that Israel need to give up its nuclear weapons.
Friday, the 189 member nations of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty agreed to brand Israel as the stumbling block towards peace in the Middle East. This time it was not the Jewish settlers in the so-called West bank that was the aggressors that needed to be «frozen».
This time the Islamic block in the United Nations that pushed for a «Middle East zone free of nuclear weapons and all other weapons of mass destruction». A conference must be convened in 2012 to assure this zone to be implemented.
This Arab idea of a WMD-free zone, meant to pressure Israel to give up its undeclared nuclear arsenal, was endorsed by the 1995 NPT conference but never acted on.
Israel has long said a full Arab-Israeli peace must precede such weapons bans. But at this conference the US, Israel’s chief supporter, said it welcomed «practical measures» leading toward the goal of a nuke-free zone, and US diplomats discussed possibilities with Israel.
A sticking point had been a passage naming Israel, reaffirming «the importance of Israel’s accession to the NPT», a move that would require it to destroy its estimated 80 or so nuclear warheads.
Iran demanded that this NPT session insist Israel join the treaty before a 2012 conference. Egypt’s UN Ambassador Maged Abdelaziz told reporters the Arab position was softer — that Israel’s accession to the treaty would come as «part of the process» begun in 2012.
Although the Israelis apparently had acquiesced to US urging that they take part in such a 2012 discussion, they then objected to participating under terms in which they were the only nation mentioned in this way, diplomats said.
In the end, the singling out of Israel remained in the text, and Tauscher said that would «seriously jeopardize» US efforts to persuade the Israelis to attend 2012 talks.

North America as a Nuclear free zone is a noble thought. I am sure Mexico would like to vote «yes». The idea is that the globe will be a better place where everyone works for peace, if only USA gives up its nuclear arms.
While the US is surrounded by friends, Israel is in circled by enemies. They tried to destroy Israel in 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973. All these pan-Arabic wars was started before Israel developed its first nuclear bomb.
Not so strange, there have been no Pan-Arabic war on Israel after the Jewish state told the Arabs they have nuclear arms. It looks like the Jewish nuclar bomb held back the Arabic desire for more wars to get rid of the Jewish state.
If the Arabs succeeds to remove the nuclear bombs of Israel, I guess the desire for more wars will come back?
Because no one, absolutely no one seems to link the Nuclear free zone talk to a demand for the Arabic Islamic world to first recognize the state of Israel.
For Israel, there is another challenge. Nuclear missiles, does not confine it selves to borders on the ground. The Islamic Word do already have nuclear arms.
Is Pakistan ready to give up their nuclear bombs?
I guess not.
Is is ok that Pakistan can threaten Israel with nuclear weapons, and Israel not being able to counter?
Will Pakistan one day become the next «Talibanland», or ruled by a leader that supports Osama Bin Laden?
The Obama administration do support the hidden Islamic agenda of getting rid of the Jewish state. if not, they would have veto this Arabic «peace proposal».
