Israel has nuclear weapons. One of President Obama’s big policy points is reducing nukes.
I hope that what Obama jump started this past week will lead to Israel admitting that is has nukes and signing on to the nonproliferation pact. If Israel would just admit and agree to the pact, then it could be inspected and regulated. For now, Israel is just as bad as North Korea or Syria.
My only regret would be that in exposing that Israel has the bomb, their source would also be exposed. South Africa has enough trouble on its hands without having to account for that happening during apartheid.
Better people than me have made petter arguments. But there must be a way. I think the response from responsible media has been about right. Obama stated what has been policy for years. Netanyahu embarrassed himself and his nation by acting like our stated position was somehow outrageous — people who know and have followed this know that what he said is a pile of crap. So, while lesser Americans cheer on Bibi, I’m proud to have a president who used to be called Barry.
