Israel reserves the privilege of being the only nuclear power in the middle east.

Israel voted against the entire rest of the world today at the UN in voting against a proposed nuclear weapons ban in the middle east.  The vote was 100-1.  The US abstained but insisted that it supports the measure in principle. 

The non-binding ballot at the annual International Atomic Energy Agency assembly was 100-1 with four abstentions, compared with 82-0 with 13 abstentions in 2008.

Israel welcomed Arab states’ readiness this year to adjust language objectionable to it but said it voted no because the draft retained a clause calling “upon all states in the region to accede” to the NPT.

The United States, Israel’s closest ally, abstained from the vote but Ambassador Glyn Davies said Washington was committed to the goal of Middle East free of weapons of mass destruction.

Sure, it’s alright for the most violent nation in the middle east to have nuclear weapons, but Israel will scream bloody murder when Iran (which has never attacked another nation in it’s entire modern existence) has a nuclear energy program.  Go figure.
