Western Double Standards Again

Here’s another case of double standards.

Western nations lead by Canada
neutralised an Arab and Islamic states’ bid at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IEAE) meeting on Friday to declare Israel's reputed nuclear arsenal a threat that must be removed.

Canada, which has recently changed to a right wing pro-US government, sponsored a 45-29 ‘no-action’ ballot that prevented IEAE member states from voting on a motion demanding Israel use atomic energy only for peaceful purposes and help set up a Middle East nuclear arms-free zone.

Now, tell me, what's so wrong about the Arab-Islamic proposal? Why sabotage that motion? Why prevent a call for peaceful use of nuclear energy only by Israel? By default, those Western countries are saying Israel has the right to possess and use N-weapons? Then why the double standards with Iran?

The United States, European and other Western allies combined to maintain the double standards that undermine their crdibility as balaced brokers. However, those US-led Western nations said the Muslim motion was politically divisive and undermined the IAEA's traditional consensual approach. But I don’t see the US support of a 'consensual' approach when it comes to Iran!

US foes such as Venezuela and Cuba and some developing nations like South Africa joined the unsuccessful Arab-Islamic effort to put it to a floor vote.


Arab and Islamic countries are pissed off with the double standards seen in Western pressure on Iran to shelve its fledgling nuclear energy program, while Israel faced none despite a batch of UN resolutions urging it to scrap its alleged atomic warheads.

Israel has ignored more than 80 UNSC Resolutions, yet the hypocrite is demanding that the UN must ensure Resolution 1701, esepcially in the disarmament of the Hezbollah, be implemented pronto, while it sowed some 350,000 cluster bomblets in Southern Lebanon within the last 72 hours prior to the start of the ceasefire.

The US, Israel nor their allies have no moral authority to tell 3rd World countries what not to do.
