Netanyahu’s Nuclear Summit Cancellation: Truth came to market but could not be sold; however, we buy lies with ready cash.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will skip President Obama‘s nuclear security summit this week. This summit was an opportunity for Arab countries to confront and press Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Officially, Israel never admitted or denied that they have this capability. It is not a secret that Israel has nuclear power.

By avoiding the summit, Netanyhau just confirmed the unfairness of international law. While Netanyahu is alerting the world of the danger of a nuclear Iran, at the same time, nobody says anything about Israel’s own nuclear arsenal. The five members of the United Nations security council (the US, China, Russia, France, and the UK) are  mysteriously quiet, applying a policy of “don’t ask, don’t tell” with regard to Israel.

Netanyahu often has succeeded in fooling the international community, especially the United States, France and the UK. The latest friction between Israel and its traditional allies over the building of new settlements on Palestinian land and the use of fake British passports by the Israeli intelligence in order to assassinate an Hamas leader have shown the real face of the Israeli regime. 

Many people in the world believe that President Ahmadinejad is crazy, but sometimes what comes from his mouth is the truth: a truth that some countries do not want to hear. As the Yoruba of Nigeria say, “Truth came to market but could not be sold; however, we buy lies with ready cash.”
