Tiny Gaza Strip that is home to some one million Palestinians is being destroyed inhumanely by West Asia's only nuclear state and the world's major powers are just watching the destruction and killing of nearly a thousand lives, half of which are women and children.
Palestine's Arab brothers, in particular Egypt and Saudi Arabia, are doing nothing to save Palestine. Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's decision to close the Rafah exit preventing innocent Palestinians from escaping the Zionist bombardment is disgraceful.
President Mubarak and the Saudi monarch are Washington's stooges. Nothing less. They are only interested to protect their dictatorial positions.
On the other hand, the United Nations Organization is toothless and is unable to protect or save innocent Palestinians. The UN Security Council failed to adhere to the world body's charter. It is clear that the UN is powerless to act unless with the backing of the United States and in this case, the US is all out for Israel.
The UN, with Washington's pressure and strongly backed by the Zionist regime, are more interested to prevent Iran from using nuclear energy. They accused Iran of in the process of developing nuclear weapon.
Why Iran and not Israel?
It is a known fact that Israel is the world's sixth most powerful nuclear state, with a stockpile of more than 100 nuclear weapons and with the components and ability to build atomic, neutron and hydrogen bombs.
According to the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control, Israel's nuclear program began and still operates under tight secrecy, and with the knowledge and assistance of the United States, I may add.
The Wisconsin Project conducts research and advocacy to stem the spread of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction (President Bush is America's weapon of mass deception). It was established in 1986 by now-Emeritus Professor Gary Milhollin as a non-profit, non-partisan organization that operates in Washington, D.C. under the auspices of the University of Wisconsin.
France launched Israel on the nuclear path in the late 1950s by building the Dimona reactor, which is still the source of Israel's plutonium -- its main nuclear weapon fuel. The reactor's heavy water, essential to ahieve a chain reaction, was supplied by Norway in 1959. In 1963, when the reactor started operation, the United States supplied four more tons of heavy water.
Franco-Israeli nuclear cooperation is described in detail in the book "Les Deux Bombes" (1982) by French journalist Pierre Pean, who gained access to the official French files on Dimona. The book revealed that the Dimona's cooling circuits were built two to three times larger than necessary for the 26-megawatt reactor Dimona was supposed to be -- proof that it had always been intended to make bomb quantities of plutonium.
The book also revealed that French technicians had built a plutonium extraction plant at the same site. French nuclear assistance enabled Israel to produce enough plutonium for one bomb even before the 1967 Six Day War. France also provided Israel with nuclear weapon design information.
The United States, France and Norway provided both materials and know-how to Israel and today they are preventing Iran from using nuclear energy for peaceful use. Why? Is it because the United States and Israel cannot accept another nuclear power in the Middle East/West Asia region, or is it because President Bush described Iran as one of the "axis of evil" states which supported terrorism?
Bush and the CIA had lied to the world on Iraq's so called weapons of mass destruction and now they are lying about Iran's nuclear programme. They assisted Israel to produce nuclear weapons and prevented another country from using nuclear energy. Why?
