Israeli Subterfuge Exposed
Monday, 05 October 2009 18:24
by William A. Cook

Unbeknownst to the main stream media, the remarks by President Obama concerning the recently disclosed nuclear plant being constructed at Qum were written the night Bibi Netanyahu addressed the UN and told the world that he would not accept the President’s desire to halt construction of settlements on Palestinian land. In fact, Netanyahu told the President that Israel had no intentions of seeking peace with the Palestinians. Apparently angered at this rejection of his overtures, the President wrote the following remarks intending , one assumes, to present it before the international community. Fortunately for Israel, unfortunately for the President and America, some undisclosed speech writer substituted Iran for Israel in the remarks presented in Pittsburgh. (Satire)

President Obama and the leaders of France and Britain opened the Group of 20 summit in Pittsburgh this morning and accused Iran of building a secret nuclear facility. Here is the text of their remarks, as prepared for delivery.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Good morning. We are here to announce that yesterday in Vienna, the United States, the United Kingdom, and France presented detailed evidence to the IAEA demonstrating that the Jewish State of Israel has been building a covert uranium enrichment facility near Dimona for 35 years.

Earlier this week, Mr. Mordechai Vanunu provided back issues of the Sunday Mirror to the IAEA that made reference to the 35 year old enrichment facility, years after Israel had started its construction. The existence of this facility underscores Israel’s continuing unwillingness to meet its obligations under U.N. Security Council resolutions and IAEA requirements. We expect the IAEA to immediately investigate this disturbing information, and to report to the IAEA Board of Governors.

Now, Israel’s decision to clandestinely build and deny existence of a nuclear facility without notifying the IAEA represents a direct challenge to the basic compact at the center of the non-proliferation agreement that unifies all Mid-East countries against nuclear proliferation. These rules are clear: All nations have the right to peaceful nuclear energy; those nations with nuclear weapons must move towards disarmament; those nations without nuclear weapons must forsake them. That compact has largely held for decades, keeping the world far safer and more secure. And that compact depends on all nations living up to their responsibilities. Consequently, it is disturbing to note that Israel has been in the forefront of condemning other members of the UN, like North Korea and Iran, for harboring desires to acquire nuclear weapons.


This site deepens a growing concern that Israel is refusing to live up to those international responsibilities, including specifically revealing all nuclear-related activities. As the international community knows, this is not the first time that Israel has concealed information about its nuclear program. Israel has a right to peaceful nuclear power that meets the energy needs of its people. But the size and configuration of this facility is inconsistent with a peaceful program. Israel is breaking rules that all nations must follow -- endangering the global non-proliferation regime, denying its own people access to the opportunity they deserve, and threatening the stability and security of the region and the world.

It is time for Israel to act immediately to restore the confidence of the international community by fulfilling its international obligations. We remain committed to serious, meaningful engagement with Israel to address the nuclear issue through the P5-plus-1 negotiations. Through this dialogue, we are committed to demonstrating that international law is not an empty promise; that obligations must be kept; and that treaties will be enforced.

And that's why there's a sense of urgency about the upcoming meeting on October 1st between Israel, the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, and Germany. At that meeting, Israel must be prepared to cooperate fully and comprehensively with the IAEA to take concrete steps to create confidence and transparency in its nuclear program and to demonstrate that it is committed to establishing its peaceful intentions through meaningful dialogue and concrete actions.

To put it simply: Israel must comply with U.N. Security Council resolutions and make clear it is willing to meet its responsibilities as a member of the community of nations. We have offered Israel a clear path toward greater international integration if it lives up to its obligations, and that offer stands. But the Israeli government must now demonstrate through deeds its peaceful intentions or be held accountable to international standards and international law.

I would now like to turn to the Prime Minister of Britain, Gordon Brown, for a brief statement.

PRIME MINISTER BROWN: America, the United Kingdom, and France are at one. Israel’s nuclear program is the most urgent proliferation challenge that the world faces today.

As President Obama and President Sarkozy have just said (and I apologize that we cannot translate President Sarkozy’s comments into English since that is forbidden by the Royal Academy of France), the level of deception by the Israeli government, and the scale of what we believe is the breach of international commitments, will shock and anger the whole international community, and it will harden our resolve.

Confronted by the serial deception of many years, the international community has no choice today but to draw a line in the sand. On October the 1st, Israel must now engage with the international community and join the international community as a partner. If it does not do so, it will be further isolated by economic pressures of boycott, especially of its munitions’ sales to other UN peaceful nations.

And I say on behalf of the United Kingdom today, we will not let this matter rest. And we are prepared to implement further and more stringent sanctions.

Let the message that goes out to the world be absolutely clear: that Israel must abandon any military ambitions for its nuclear program. Thank you.
