Another anti-Israel witness against Bolton


John S. Wolf is being called by the Senate Democrats to testify against John Bolton. As Assistant Secretary of State for Nonproliferation, Wolf called for Israel to join the Nuclear Non—Proliferation Treaty. This has been a tactic used by anti—Israel advocates for years, and would subject Israel to intrusive investigations weakening its nuclear deterrence against Arab neighbors sworn to destroy it.

The International Atomic Energy Agency, headed by Mohammed el—Baredei, has ignored and proven inept and feckless against dictatorial regimes pursuing nuclear weapons (Iran, North Korea). Once exposed to the prejudice of yet another international organization, Israel's efforts to defend itself will be under continued international assault.
