Israel deliberately killed Al Jazeera reporter

Blast From the Past
In 1979, a U.S. satellite detected signs of a nuclear explosion. An analysis of the evidence today points to a clandestine nuclear test, a Carter administration cover-up, and only one country that was willing and able to carry it out: Israel.

The Carter administration was so afraid to enforce the PTBT against Israel’s 1979 violation that it did what it could to erase or keep hidden evidence of its detection of a test. Subsequent administrations, Republican and Democratic alike, went along with this, and the U.S. government still pretends it knows nothing about any Israeli nuclear weapons.

It is an outcome—and a danger—that an arms control expert foresaw long ago. In the period before the PTBT, when the debate over nuclear nonproliferation agreements centered on the adequacy of technical means to detect Soviet cheating, Fred Iklé, in a classic 1961 Foreign Affairs article, reminded the arms control community that while technical means to verify performance are essential, compliance ultimately depends on a willingness to respond to detected violation. Iklé worried that, for political reasons, a democracy like the United States might decide to overlook an arms-control treaty violation. Most important, Iklé wrote, was to make sure a would-be violator could not expect to benefit from a violation.

That’s not what happened after the Vela event. Israel’s nuclear program went on to acquire weapons deliverable by land, sea, and air, with the means of delivery provided by French-designed missiles, German submarines, and American airplanes. If anything, Israel’s nuclear weaponry gained a stronger political position vis-à-vis the United States. A June 2018 New Yorker article reported that Israel demanded, and got, secret letters from U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump, which Israeli leaders interpreted as a U.S. promise to protect their nuclear weapons. And indeed, these U.S. presidents did protect Israel’s nuclear weapons from scrutiny and criticism in the United Nations and other international forums. It is part of a pattern that has destroyed America’s credibility on nonproliferation.

What Israel says—or doesn’t say—about its nuclear weapons is its own affair. But the United States should not agree to muzzle itself. It was always a humiliating role that opened the United States to the charge of hypocrisy. Now, in the face of strong confirmation of Israel’s violation of the Partial Test Ban Treaty, it has become an insupportable one.

(...)

Since the early days of nuclear weapons, there have always been forces trying to put the genie back in the bottle. That has proved difficult in a polarized world, but there have at least been a few partly successful attempts.

The first multilateral nuclear test ban was the Partial Test Ban Treaty, which outlawed tests of nuclear explosions in all environments except underground. It went into force in 1963, with the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, and the United States as the original signatories. Within a few months, many other countries ratified it, including Israel and South Africa.

But those Iranians!

Saying Israel is guilty of apartheid isn't antisemitic. Just ask these Israeli leaders.
An open letter from four Jewish Democrats really misses the mark.

Support Israel or risk being cancelled...
'Major victory' as US federal judge slams anti-BDS laws unconstitutional
Martin's appearance and an honorarium of $1,000 was made conditional on her not supporting the BDS movement during the period around her keynote speech. State laws like the one in Georgia demand contractors like Martin pledge their loyalty to the Israeli government if they would like payment of $1,000 or more from state institutions.

In his decision, the judge concluded that the university had violated Martin's constitutional rights when it cancelled her speaking engagement on a college campus because she refused to sign a state-mandated oath pledging not to engage in boycotts of Israel.

As Israel’s Dependence on U.S. Shrinks, So Does U.S. Leverage
Israel has quietly sought, and perhaps achieved, a large measure of autonomy from its half-century of reliance on the United States.

Always nice to have the opinion of an anti-Semitic ethnic cleansing terrorist! 

If you love Israel, you have no choice, you have to love TERRORISM.

Friend of yours kurtster?   How many American lives are you willing to sacrifice so this righteous settler can steal homes in illegally annexed Jerusalem?  




You were not calling for the end of hostilities.

I thought you were seeking parity, right ?

You were complaining that not enough Jews were being killed compared to Palestinians.

You're the one taking sides, not me.

It is Easter!

A time when heroic, patriotic North Americans pray for the success of the Israeli nuclear-weapons backed affirmative action ethnic cleansing programme.  

It is hard not to love the beautiful rhetoric of cultural superiority that comes tripping off the tongues of Israelis, in particular West Bank settlers.

It is hard not love the 5:1 Kill Ratios.   Many Americans and Canadians love killing civilians which is easy to do if one blithely assumes that all Semitic peoples (Arabs) are "terrorists".   

Then there is the lovely Israeli nuclear weapons cache backed by an America Dark Ages morality approach to nuclear weapons proliferation.  The Israelis are not using nuclear weapons for purely defensive purposes but rather for offensive purposes.  The MAD doctrine has been turned on its head.  

In effect, the Israelis are show-casing the expanded usefulness of nuclear weapons.  

In the background, American voters are blissfully ignorant of how a regional nuclear war — unlikely to directly involve Israel — will blowback and maim or kill perhaps close to half the adult population.  If you thought the SARS Cov2 pandemic was scary, just wait for a nuclear war.  And watch your fellow citizens struggle while many die.
