Nuclear weapons states are hypocrites
A former advisor to the EU foreign policy chief says that when US officials talk about making the Middle East a nuclear weapons-free zone, they basically mean Iran rather than Israel.
In an interview with Press TV on Saturday, Alastair Crooke said that nuclear weapons states are showing great hypocrisy when it comes to the issue of Israel’s nuclear arsenal and the fact that certain countries that have not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty possess nuclear weapons.
“In Pakistan and in India and in Israel, in all of those cases it has been responded to by the West by further assistance, by further trade agreements, indeed, technological help with their nuclear programs,” he said.
He added that the United States “is giving assurances in advance to Israel that there can be no ending to the ambiguity in Israel’s policy or change in the American policy towards Israel.”
