- Can't smell Israel
- On September 24th, U.S. President Barack Obama will
preside over a U.N. Security Council session on nuclear nonproliferation
and disarmament. In March 2010, Moscow will host a Global Nuclear Summit
that the U.S. has agreed to attend.
- The next six months could prove hopeful or harmful-depending
on the impact on Israel's nuclear arsenal. With U.S. backing, Tel Aviv
has thus far avoided compliance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation
Treaty-joining North Korea, India and Pakistan.
- President John F. Kennedy tried to stop Israel from starting
a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. In a June 1963 letter to Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion, he insisted on proof "beyond a reasonable
doubt" that Israel was not developing nuclear weapons at its Dimona
reactor facility. Though his letter was cabled to the U.S. embassy, Ben-Gurion
resigned (citing undisclosed personal reasons) before the message could
be physically delivered.
- With Israel's nuclear ambitions under attack by its key
ally, that strategically well-timed resignation duped an inexperienced
young president and denied him a diplomatic victory that might well have
precluded the wars now being waged in the Middle East.
