Report: Obama Administration Has Been Working For Months on Plan to Force Israel to Give Up Its Nukes


Barack Obama prayed at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem during the 2008 campaign.

Today the The Jerusalem Post reported that the Obama Administration has been working for months on a plan to force Israel to give up its nuclear weapons.

Egypt has proposed that a Nonproliferation Treaty conference now meeting at UN headquarters in New York back a plan calling for the start of negotiations next year on a Mideast free of nuclear arms. The proposal may become a major debating point in the monthlong session.

The US has cautiously supported the idea while saying that implementing it must wait for progress in the Middle East peace process. Israel also says a comprehensive Middle East peace settlement must come first.

“The question is, how do you do that in the absence of a peace plan?” Undersecretary of State Ellen Tauscher said Wednesday of the “nuke-free” zone idea.

Still, Washington appears to be ready to move from passive support to a more active role.

In her speech to the UN nuclear conference on Monday, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Washington would support “practical measures for moving toward that objective,” while Tauscher said the US has been working “for months” with Egypt on the issue.
