Netanyahu Withdraws From Obama's Nuke Terrorism Summit Fearing Ambush

And odds are Obama would join the ambush rather than prevent it.

Netanyahu, who plans to send a deputy and two senior advisers to the April 12-13 conference instead, canceled "after learning that some countries including Egypt and Turkey plan to say Israel must sign the NPT," an Israeli official said.

By staying outside the 1970 Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Israel has not had to forswear nuclear arms nor admit international inspectors to its Dimona reactor, which experts believe has produced plutonium for between 80 and 200 warheads.

Netanyahu's attendance at the 47-country summit would have been unprecedented. Israeli premiers long shunned such forums, hoping to dampen foreign scrutiny on their nuclear secrets.

Aides said Netanyahu originally agreed to go after being reassured by the United States that the summit communique would focus on efforts to secure fissile materials and shun language challenging Israel's nuclear "ambiguity" policy.

Such coordination between the allies has been clouded, however, by rifts over stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

This ties in nicely with Liz Cheney's speech last night at the Republican Southern Leadership Conference. Her crazy theory? Maybe the US should be friendly towards our allies.

Israel is our strongest ally in the Middle East and one of our strongest and most important allies in the world. Barack Obama is playing a reckless game that could have deadly consequences if he continues on the path of diminishing America’s ties to Israel. Israel is not the only ally to have felt Obama’s wrath — last year the Obama Administration pulled the rug out from under leaders in Poland and the Czech Republic by abruptly canceling a missile defense system they had committed to host. We did so because the Russians complained.

Afghan President Karzai, whose support we need if we are going to succeed in Afghanistan, is being treated to an especially dangerous and juvenile display from this White House. They dress him down publicly almost daily and refuse to even say that he is an ally. There is a saying in the Arab world: “It is more dangerous to be America’s friend than to be her enemy.” In the age of Obama, that is proving true.

On the day that Iran announces once again that it is moving ahead with its nuclear program, Obama's vaunted conference on nuclear terrorism is about to be hijacked by Muslim nations to attack Israel. Wonderful.

As Teh Fred said in The Hunt for Red October, "This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it. "
