The necessity to establish a Nuclear Weapon Free Zone (NWFZ) in the Middle East is a policy that is internationally recognized and almost universally supported. The major states who have consistently hindered the efforts for realizing such a policy have been the United States and Israel.
For the United States, this is a hypocritical action.
Part of the rationalization for the First Gulf War was to take concrete steps at establishing a NWFZ in the Middle East. This is outlined in U.N. Resolution 687 – a resolution wholly approved by the United States.
U.S. Foreign Policy continues to apply pressure to countries in the Middle East on the argument that nuclear disarmament must take place in order for peace to reign – the only country the U.S. refuses to apply this policy to is Israel.
The reasoning? The argument is that there must be peace in the Middle East, before Israel’s nuclear disarmament takes place.
This logic, too, is hypocritical.
The establishment of a Nuclear Weapon Free-Zone in the Middle East is the first step the region must take in order to promote peace – not the last.
