Carter Blasted for Citing Israeli Nukes

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has again come under fire in the U.S. mainstream media, since publicly saying that Israel has 150 or more nuclear weapons in its arsenal.

Details about Israel's nuclear weapons program started emerging in 1986. International nuclear experts now believe that Israel maintains a cache of between 100 and 300 nuclear weapons, though Israel, backed by the U.S., maintains a policy of nuclear ambiguity.

The only solution in Palestine is that which is never mentioned: to restore the Balfour, send the dwarf in Jordan back to his saudi swampland, and ignore the world's least effected refugees - the Pretend Pals have more options and facilities than any refugees in Geo-History.

Briton lost its prefix of 'GREAT' when it corrupted its pledge before the world and Heaven, for 30 barrels of oil, when Jews were in their most helpless stage:

'IT WILL BE AN HISTORIC COMPROMISE TO GRANT TWO STATES IN PALESTINE - ONE FOR THE JEWS AND ONE FOR THE ARABS' - Churchill.

The CURRENT term OF '2-state' is also false - it is a deathly 3-state, aimed at Israel's demise. And it is demanded because the Arabs urgently need a new golf course erected on soccer-field size Israel, who is still OCCUPYING all of "12 %" of the land allocated her in the Balfour.

NO BALFOUR - NO PEACE.

ISRAEL WILL PREVAIL - EUROSTAN SHALL FALL.

This is just more right-wing flakking, dredging up OLD news* and trying to put some hysterical spin on it. Carter quoting this info 20+ yrs later is a non-story to any informed observer.


(ie: from 1986 when Mordechai Vanunu became a whistle-blower and revealed that Israel had some 200 nuclear weapons. For just two of the links, see http://www.antiwar.com/orig/zunes.php?articleid=2378 or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mordechai_Vanunu )

ANY president, current or past, would and should be "blasted for citing Israeli nukes."

Being a former president, Carter should be keenly aware that making statements like this contrary to long standing U.S. policy and protocol is dangerous and counterproductive.

But no. He goes and makes them himself.
