Would you have given Rommel plans of the allied invasion of Normandy in 1944? Then why allow an undeclared nuclear state in 2014 to infiltrate European state security?
The security of both EU and NATO has potentially been compromised by awarding national defence contracts to the world’s only secret nuclear weapon state, one that – similar to North Korea – refuses to be subject to UN or IAEA safeguards.
The state of Israel is not in NATO, not in Europe and not subject to EU law – but is in the extraordinary position of having managed to gain sensitive defence contracts and military intelligence with a significant number of NATO and EU member governments.
There is now a growing body of concerned opinion that military defence contracts for all EU governments should only be placed with NATO based suppliers, as a prerequisite for secure European military defence systems. At the present, this is not the case and there is a serious danger that the security of many EU governments, (including the British Ministry of Defence), has potentially already been compromised.
If Rommel had gained details of American and British intelligence for the invasion of Normandy in July 1944, up to 160,000 allied troops would have been killed and World War 2 would have been lost. In fact, the Axis powers had no prior notice and, thank God, the tide of war was able to be turned conclusively in the favour of America, the British Commonwealth of Nations and the free world.
Incredibly, we now seem to have forgotten the fact that the first imperative for any government is the survival of the nation it represents. And that duty requires it not to share intelligence with those who refuse to be a party to international agreed treaties and conventions such as the UN’s IAEA, the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) all of which are designed to keep us safe.
