Letter to IAEA
Eric Walberg (July 6, 2004)
Dear M Gwozdecky,
I understand that Mohamed El Baradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is visiting Israel for a rare visit. Not only is he NOT planning to visit Dimona, where Israel produces and stores hundreds of nuclear bombs, I understand he did not even ASK to.
For an internationally respected Arab official to be so servile to Israel, the main source of world terrorism today, is an insult to his fellow Arabs and to all peace-loving people.
Of course we know what happened to the last official to ask to see Dimona. That was President J F Kennedy, and since Dallas 1963 there have been no more people with the courage to stand up to Israel. Oh, I forgot Iraq. Funny what happened to IT.
Is Mr Baradei going to DEMAND that Israel eliminate its massive arsenal of WMDs like he did in Iraq, where his agents made 177 inspections at 125 locations in one month before the war? Or like he is doing every day in frenzied public statements to Iran, which HAS no WMDs and no plans for territorial expansion (unlike a certain other Middle Eastern country which I will not name)?
Not only is he not visiting Israel’s nuclear arsenal or even asking politely to have it dismantled, he has even agreed to the Israeli government’s demand to have no press coverage of his visit.
After his visit to Teheran, he met with the press and told them that Iran had agreed to accelerate cooperation with the IAEA. Is he too shy to meet the press in Tel Aviv and answer their questions?
One final question: why is he not planning to visit the nuclear whistle-blower, Mordechai Vanunu, who spent 18 years mostly in solitary confinement because he was concerned about the world’s future and wanted the world to know the truth about the danger that Israel poses to the world?
I look forward to your answers to my questions. I hope to live to see the day when the IAEA shows some integrity and courage, and stops acting as a front for American-Israeli terrorism.
