United Nations tells Israel to let in nuclear inspectors

How come we don't hear this on Fox news ;)

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS | UNITED NATIONS

The U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved a resolution Monday calling on Israel to quickly open its nuclear program for inspection and backing a high-level conference to ban nuclear weapons from the Middle East which was just canceled.

All the Arab nations and Iran had planned to attend the conference in mid-December in Helsinki, Finland, but the United States announced on Nov. 23 that it wouldn’t take place, citing political turmoil in the region and Iran’s defiant stance on nonproliferation. Iran and some Arab nations countered that the real reason for the cancellation was Israel’s refusal to attend.

The resolution, approved by a vote of 174-6 with 6 abstentions, calls on Israel to join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty “without further delay” and open its nuclear facilities to inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Those voting “no” were Israel, the U.S., Canada, Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Palau.

Resolutions adopted by the 193-member General Assembly are not legally binding but they do reflect world opinion and carry moral and political weight.

Our politicians really don't

Our politicians really don't care about us. They don't care how many of us die for no reason, like the 58,000 military personnel killed in Vietnam. But when it comes to Israel, that's another story.

And this is why I go to great pains to explain to foreigners that our politicians do not represent the American people. They represent the special interests that make campaign contributions and offer them retirement jobs. There is a word of this, and that word is BRIBERY.

The UN is such a worthless

The UN is such a worthless organization.

Because...

"How come we don't hear this on Fox news ;)"

Because no one cares about the UN but globalists?

Looks like the Lawyer-word game wins again...

"Resolutions adopted by the 193-member General Assembly are not legally binding but they do reflect world opinion and carry moral and political weight."

In other words: Israel, show us your stuff. If you don't: MEH....

Bologna.

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Anyone want to bet Israel

just ignores them?

Two Items

First, great to see Israel being called on the carpet for their arsenal.

The second is more sobering.
The only countries that would stand with the US:
Israel
Canada
Marshall Islands
Micronesia
Palau

That is a massive failure for Hitlery Clinton and her state war department. There was a time 20 years ago were through money or fear we could make many more countries vote how we told them.
The money is not worth what it once was and the fear is fading as we are on the brink of destruction.

This realty is the real meat of the story, and why it is not appearing in state media, IMHO.
