September 18, 2009, was a very good Friday, for people of conscience, truth, justice and peace when the UN's 150-nation nuclear conference passed a resolution that directly criticized Israel and its atomic program.

It was a bad day for the Jewish State, America's Industrial Military Complex and their backers, when 49 votes were cast for the non-binding resolution at the UN nuclear assembly which is urging Israel to put all of its atomic sites under UN inspection and join the Non-Proliferation Treaty/NPT.

It was no surprise that Israel denounced the measure and exposed once more its paranoia when chief Israeli delegate David Danieli told the chamber, "Israel will not cooperate in any matter with this resolution, which is only aiming at reinforcing political hostilities and lines of division in the Middle East region." [1]

Western states also moaned how unfair and counterproductive it is to isolate one member state, claiming that an IAEA resolution passed the day before urging all Middle East nations to fore-swear atomic bombs, included Israel and made Friday's proposal unnecessary.

Glyn Davies, the US ambassador, spun the resolution as "redundant ... such an approach is highly politicized and does not address the complexities at play regarding crucial nuclear-related issues in the Middle East". [2]

The Arab nations inadvertently noted the law of Karma when they responded that Israel had brought the resolution on itself by having never signed the 40-year-old NPT.

Diplomats from the non-aligned movement of developing nations noted that "times had changed with the advent of the US administration of Barack Obama, the US president."

Reuters news agency quoted one truth telling diplomat, "People and countries are bolder now, willing to call a spade a spade. You cannot hide or ignore the truth, the double standards, of Israel's nuclear capability forever. The new US administration has certainly helped this thinking with its commitment to universal nuclear disarmament and nuclear weapons-free zones." [3]

In 2005, the truth teller of Israel's WMD Program, Mordechai Vanunu told me:

"The Israelis have 200 atomic weapons and they accuse the Palestinians and Muslims of terrorism. The Dimona is 46 years old; reactors last 25 to 30 years.

"The Dimona has never been inspected and Israel has never signed the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty but all the Arab states have.

"Twenty years ago when I worked there they only produced when the air was blowing towards Jordan ten miles away. No one knows what is happening now. The world needs to wake up and see the real terrorism is the occupation and the Palestinians have lived under that terror regime for 40 years.

"When I became the spy for the world, I did it all for the people of the world. If governments do not report the truth, and if the media does not report the truth, then all we can do is follow our consciences. Daniel Ellsberg did, the woman from Enron did, and I did.

"The United States needs to wake up and see the truth that Israel is not a democracy, unless you are a Jew. Israel is the only country in the Middle East where America can right now find nuclear weapons.

"America can also find where basic human rights have been denied Christians: right here in Israel. The time has come for the United States to see the truth of Zionism. It began as a secular nationalist movement, not a religious one. Then some Christians believed that when Israel became a nation, it was the beginning of the second coming. They are deluded if they believe peace will come through atomic weapons. Atomic weapons are holocaust weapons. Christians should be the first people against them." [4]

While campaigning, Obama once admitted that if we took the Sermon on the Mount seriously, it would lead to the abolishment of the Industrial Military Complex and as "Our problems stem from our acceptance of this filthy, rotten system" [and] Our manifesto is the Sermon on the Mount, which means that we will try to be peacemakers"not the bombardment of open cities"not killing."-Dorothy Day
