US Cancels Middle East Nuclear Conference
Voice of America ^ | November 24, 2012 | unattributed

Posted on 11/25/2012 7:12:56 PM PST by SunkenCiv

The United States says a conference on banning nuclear weapons in the Middle East will not be held because of current conditions in the region.

The announcement comes amid a flare up in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in Gaza, civil war in Syria and an unsettled political situation in Egypt.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Friday "a deep conceptual gap persists in the region" on how to handle regional security and arms control.

Nuland said the U.S. would not support a conference in which any regional state would be subjected to "pressure or isolation," a reference to U.S. concerns that participants would gang up on Israel.

Iran and Arab states often say Israel's presumed nuclear arsenal poses a threat to Middle East peace and security. Israel and Western powers see Iran as the main nuclear proliferation threat. Tehran denies any atom bomb ambitions.

The meeting was to be held in Finland before the end of the year.

All it would be would be caterwauling and gnashing of teeth because Israel has nuclear weapons and calls for their disarmament. Not a word about Iran or Pakistan would be uttered.

Daniel 8:25

King James Version (KJV)

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand;
and he shall magnify himself in his heart,
and by peace shall destroy many:
he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes;
but he shall be broken without hand.

Let Israel take care of business without outside political influence, and the ME nuclear problem will disappear.

It's understandable that with conflict in the region they might want to wait a little while because things are just getting more stable every day. They missed their chance to do this when things were a little calmer like around 500 AD.
