UK's Jack Straw Says Israel has Nuclear Weapons, Steals Palestinian LandSalem-News.com
"Look, Israel has made statements in the past. Israeli ambassadors to the UN like myself have said that Israel won’t be the first country to introduce nuclear weapons into the Middle East." - Dr. Dore Gold, former Israeli ambassador
(LONDON) - A tradition has developed in the West whereby politicians speak common sense and the truth, but only when they are no longer in power. Witness, for example, the former US president, Jimmy Carter.
Now Jack Straw, who was Britain’s foreign secretary at the time of the Anglo-American aggression against Iraq, has stepped forward to keep the tradition alive.
During a debate with Dore Gold, a former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations and advisor to Binyamin Netanyahu, broadcast on BBC Radio Radio 4′s flagship “Today” programme on 14 June, Straw said explicitly what every honest and decent person had always know: that Israel, in contrast to Iran, has “a most extensive nuclear weapons capability” and is “stealing the land of the Palestinians”.
