IAEA to Go After Israel

When Obama shows contempt toward Israel this is what happens.

The 35-nation IAEA board is the agency's decision making body and can refer proliferation concerns to the U.N. Security Council — as it did with Iran in 2006 after Tehran resumed uranium enrichment, a potential pathway to nuclear weapons.

A decision to keep the item would be a slap in the face not only for Israel but also for Washington and its Western allies, which support the Jewish state and view Iran as the greatest nuclear threat to the Middle East.

If the Israelis stonewall the IAEA then Iran gets all kinds of bargaining leverage. If the Israelis declare themselves a nuclear power then all of their enemies might be able to go nuclear to in their words "counter the Zionist threat." Whenever there is daylight between Washington and Jerusalem you see this kind of thing happen.
