[September 30th, 2009] Israel and United States nuclear hypocrisy is clearly evident when one realizes the full extent of Israel's hidden Dimona nuclear weapons factory as well as the fact that Iran, unlike Israel, is a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and has been pushing for the removal of all weapons of mass destruction across the globe:
As the Obama administration lays the groundwork to isolate Iran economically from the rest of the world over that nation's nuclear program ~ don't forget that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has recently ordered Iran's foreign currency reserves, currently in US dollars, to be held in euros.
Press TV reports that the order was issued on September 12 following a decision by the trustees of the country's foreign reserves. An ominous reminder that shortly after Iraq announced the same move to oil payments in euros versus dollars ~ the United States attacked Iraq.
Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan recently rightfully condemned Western countries' focus on Iran's nuclear program, stressing that the world should be dealing with Israel's nuclear weapons instead. The Turkish president correctly noted that Israel has "nuclear weapons" and has illegally used "phosphorous bombs" against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. "If only Iran is put on the world agenda, then we may neglect other issues such as the Gaza [conflict] that should be addressed," Erdogen sarcastically commented.
