UN to impose sanctions on Israel.

VIENNA - The United Nations nuclear watchdog's governing board approved a resolution Saturday referring the Iranian nuclear program to the UN Security Council.The measure passed by a vote of 27 for to three against, with five member states abstaining.

In its resolution, the International Atomic Energy Agency Board of Governors included a call for nations of the Middle East to be rid of nuclear weapons.

This resolution is aimed at Isarel as the only nation in the Middle East with Nuclear Weapons.

When the referral comes before the Security Council next month Israel will be asked to sign the NPT and allow Dimona to be inspected.

If Israel does not co-operate then sanctions will be placed on it by Europe and The US.

As they say in diplomatic circles “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander”.
