JERUSALEM – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to abruptly cancel a trip to a nuclear conference in Washington spotlighted a key sore point Friday in international nonproliferation efforts: Israel’s own atomic weapons.
It’s the worst kept secret in the Middle East and today’s story of Netanyahu’s canceled trip ought to have taken the cloak entirely off of this ‘secret.’
I wonder, though, just how many Americans never knew about Israel’s nuclear arsenal? With the current rash of idiocy spreading like a flu virus across this land, I’d say 90% at least.
Ignorance is bliss .
