The Iran-Nuclear-Agreement-Review-Act and Nuclear Proliferation in the Middle East

As a direct consequence of the international failure over many years to force Israel to declare its nuclear arsenal and to comply with the essential oversight of the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) – we can expect the GCC states of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as well as Turkey, Iran and possibly Egypt and also South Africa to now seek to acquire nuclear weapon capability from either the West or the East – from France or the U.S., or from Pakistan or Russia.

Negotiations have, in some cases, already begun. Soon our children can expect to live in a world in which they could be incinerated at any second of any day – because they will be living in a world that will no longer have the future that we enjoyed. That is the terrible consequence of Political Zionism’s mantra of ‘nuclear ambiguity’ in which successive U.S. administrations have colluded ever since Israel deliberately deceived President John F Kennedy, in 1963, in regard to its real nuclear intentions.

That is the stark reality of our world today. However, if you think that this is unnecessarily alarmist – then spend just 15 minutes researching the subject in the pages of some of the most authoritative and respected publications: the NY Times, the Washington Post, the Guardian, the FT, Foreign Affairs or even Wikipedia.

This information is public domain knowledge that’s far easier to ignore than to accept. Because to live in a world of imminent nuclear proliferation and the inevitable conflagration, at some point, is the stuff of nightmares except that it’s absolute reality. No point, or purpose, in buying life assurance policies if there’ll likely be no opportunity to spend the money – in a stark, irradiated, lifeless landscape. But, I admit, it’s easier not to think about a world in which any one of, say, twenty assorted democracies, dictatorships regimes and governments have nuclear weapons that can destroy us all, whoever we are and wherever we live. That is why current world leaders such as Obama, Putin, Merkel, Hollande and Xi Jinping avoid the subject – whilst covertly increasing, of course, their own nuclear stockpiles.

To categorise it as MAD, is certainly correct. There is only one possible remedy to ensure our safety and that would be to declare the entire Middle East –including both Israel and Iran – to be a Nuclear Weapons Free Zone and to ensure its strict compliance.

But the U.S. Congress in concert with AIPAC will never allow that – which is why the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act was so enthusiastically passed by the U.S. Senate last week.
