UN passes resolution requiring Israel to open its nuclear program to inspection

Israel has neither confirmed or denied they have nuclear weapons. I believe they do, but whether they do or not is not the issue.  Israel, unlike Iran or North Korea will not use them as a pre-emptive weapon.  Although I find the idea of having nuclear weapons as a deterrant to intimidate the enemy into think twice about attacking a useless stance today, as our enemies know we won't use them unless one is used against us.  In the big picture, Israel, like the US has no need to let anyone look into the details of their nuclear program.  The UN needs to concentrate on those countries that have proven to be aggressive and expansionist like Iran.

From Breitbart December 6 by William Bigelow

The UN General Assembly approved a resolution on Monday by a vote of 174-6 that would require Israel to open its nuclear program to inspection “without further delay.” The only countries voting against it were the U.S., Canada, Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Palau.

And the animus toward Israel doesn’t stop there; the UN also wants to convene a meeting to ban nuclear weapons from the Middle East, which would leave Israel vastly outnumbered and essentially helpless against the Islamic hordes wishing to eradicate it.
There was supposed to be a similar meeting this month in Helsinki, Finland, with all the Arab states and Iran in attendance, but the U.S. turned it down, supposedly because of the trouble in the Middle East and Iran’s intransigence on nuclear weaponry. Israel has never confirmed that it possesses nuclear weapons and has never joined the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), but then, neither have India, Pakistan, and North Korea, all of which possess nuclear weapons. 

Iranian diplomat Khodadad Seifi hissed, “The truth is that the Israeli regime is the only party which rejected to conditions for a conference.” He vented that there should be "strong pressure on that regime to participate in the conference without any preconditions."

Israeli diplomat Isi Yanouka defended Israel, noting that Iran and Syria are not exactly friendly neighbors: "All these cases challenge Israel's security and cast a dark shadow at the prospect of embarking on a meaningful regional security process. The fact that the sponsors include in this anti-Israeli resolution language referring to the 2012 conference proves above all the ill-intent of the Arab states with regard to this conference."

In a stunning display of the moral equivalence at the UN, Syrian diplomat Abdullah Hallak told the UN that Syria was furious that the Helsinki conference was postponed because of "the whim of just one party, a party with nuclear warheads. We call on the international community to put pressure on Israel to accept the NPT, get rid of its arsenal and delivery systems, in order to allow for peace and stability in our region.”

Of course their would be peace and stability in the region; with no nuclear weapons Israel would be helpless in the face of the invading jihad, and with Israel gone Islam would have to turn its attention to its next target, Europe.  There would be peace, under the sharia law, of course.
