Extraordinary Threat to World Peace

Extraordinary Threat to World Peace

By SOP newswire2

As a reluctant President Obama, pressured by the powerful, American AIPAC lobby to visit the nuclear-armed State of Israel which it supports, there is the danger that the visit legitimises the killing fields around the illegal settlements in the West Bank.

With an undeclared arsenal estimated at up to 400 nuclear warheads all of which are uninspected by the IAEA, the Israeli state has possibly enough WMD to destroy half the world.

This extraordinary threat to world peace has been allowed to materialise over the past five decades by successive American administrations that have all been influenced by the powerful, but unelected, AIPAC lobby that now virtually controls the US Congress and, by default, American foreign policy.

This serious defect in American democracy has resulted in the State of Israel being able to dictate to the international community and to hold the US House of Representatives to ransom.  It has tried, so far unsuccessfully, to do the same with the EU Commission and Parliament.

The only answer now would appear to be to use economic sanctions to force Binyamin Netanyahu to join the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) to which the major nuclear powers are signatories and for the US to cease all arms shipments to the Israeli state.

Otherwise, Israel increasingly orchestrates US policy in the essential oil fields of the Gulf with all the attendant dangers that brings to world peace and the global economy.
