We’re Making a Nuke Pact With THEM?!: US Giving Jordanian Palis Nuke Tech (Will Use Against Israel, West)

By Debbie Schlussel

I was up in arms about the Bush Administration push to share our nuclear technology and nuclear security info with the United Arab Emirates.  Now, Barack Hussein Obama wants to do the same with Palestinian-dominated Jordan.  It’s the same difference . . . and probably even worse.


Now, you might say, “Well, Jordan is a moderate Muslim nation, our ally, and we’re friendly with King Abdullah.”  Um, think again.  Jordan is a HOTBED of Islamic terrorism and extremism.

Jordan is where a lot of Al-Qaeda and Palestinian Islamic terrorism is planned and based.  The list is a Who’s Who:  Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi . . . a Palestinian from Zarqa, Jordan; Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal Al-Balawi . . . a Palestinian, who hung out in Jordan, and recently blew up eight men at a CIA base, including seven CIA operatives. And the list goes on and on and on.  Plus, there are all those Al-Qaeda bombings in Jordan, like the homicide bombing at a wedding.

Don’t forget that roughly 90% or more of Jordanians are actually Palestinian Muslims . . . Palestinian Muslims who fomented the violent riots that resulted in 10,000 of them being killed in Black September in 1970, when they had an uprising against King Hussein and tried for the umpteenth time to assassinate him. And poll after poll after poll shows that Jordan is among the most anti-American, pro-Bin Laden, pro-homicide bombing countries.  There is very little difference between much of Jordan and Gaza, and in fact, Jordan is often used as a base for weaponry and supplies for terrorism against Israel launched from Gaza.

And with a majority of Palestinian subjects ruled by a minority Hashemite king, Jordan isn’t all that stable.  Ultimately, it could be taken over by Palestinians and is actually the real Palestinian State.  If that happens, guess whose nuke info will be in Palestinian terrorist hands?  Ours, that’s whose.  Jordan recently discovered uranium ore, and will develop nuclear weapons that could ultimately be very easily used against its neighbor, Israel.

And yet we are gonna share our nukes and nuke technology with them? Pure lunacy to do so.


Jordan is in advanced talks with the Obama administration to conclude a civilian nuclear-cooperation agreement with the U.S., according to Jordanian and U.S. officials.

Successful completion of the negotiations would make Jordan the second Arab state in less than a year, following the United Arab Emirates, to secure nuclear assistance from Washington. Any pact would constitute an international treaty and need the approval of Congress.

The talks come as Iran is accelerating its production of nuclear fuel, raising the prospect of an expanding nuclear-arms race in the Middle East.

An accord with King Abdullah II’s government in Amman would allow U.S. firms to transfer nuclear equipment, fuel and expertise to Jordan, which is one of only two Arab countries to have signed a peace agreement with Israel.

President Barack Obama has pledged to assist developing nations in pursuing civilian nuclear-power programs in exchange for guarantees they won’t seek to produce atomic bombs.

Yeah, good luck with enforcing that. Idiocy.

U.S. officials cite the cooperation agreement signed with the U.A.E. last year as a model for the peaceful development of nuclear power. Under the deal, Abu Dhabi provided assurances it won’t seek to enrich uranium on its soil. The technologies required to process uranium ore into nuclear fuel also can be used to produce weapons-grade materials.

Absurd. Meanwhile, the UAE continues to be the shipping point of nuke technology and components to Iran. Those assurances are a bunch of camel dung.

A potential stumbling block in the Jordan-U.S. deliberations, according to participants, is whether Amman will follow the U.A.E.’s lead and provide guarantees that it won’t enrich uranium domestically. The U.A.E., under the terms of its pact with Washington, could demand a renegotiation if another Middle Eastern country secures a nuclear-cooperation agreement with the U.S. under terms more favorable than Abu Dhabi’s.

Jordan’s agreement could face hurdles in Congress if Amman doesn’t approve a zero-enrichment clause. “If Jordan wants to enrich … then the U.A.E. would also have the right to renegotiate,” said a congressional aide working on nuclear issues. “This situation threatens to touch off a lot of regional tension, and we would oppose.”

PUH-LEEZE. King Abdullah–a Napoleonic short man, forced to share a border with tough Jews who have the juice–wants the juice, too. He’s going to develop nuclear weapons, period. Any “assurances” to the contrary are less valuable than soggy falafel. And ultimately, those nukes will be in the wrong hands. Sooner or later, the Palestinians will take over Jordan. Maybe not in five or ten years, but ultimately. And then, they’ll have nukes.

Jordanian officials have stressed publicly the peaceful nature of their nuclear program and said Amman is willing to ship its substantial uranium-ore deposits to third countries for processing into nuclear fuels. Jordan is also coordinating closely with the United Nations nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, to put security safeguards in place.

Yeah, right. The IAEA? You trust Mohammed El-Baradei and his ilk to stop Jordan from getting nukes and using ’em against Israel? Then, I have some land in the Jordan River to sell you.

And here’s the money quote:

Still, Jordan is wary of cutting a deal with the U.S. that would surrender its rights to enrich under terms of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Like other Middle Eastern countries, Jordan doesn’t want to undermine a pre-existing multilateral treaty.

“We’re confident we can complete the agreement in the near term,” said Jordan’s ambassador to Washington, Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al-Hussein.

Translation from Arablish to English: We’re confident we can sign a worthless piece of baloney with the stupid Yankees, soon. And then it’s on to ultimately microwaving the Jews. Soon, Eilat will be ours.

Jordan sought to complete the nuclear-cooperation agreement with the Bush administration in 2008, but ran out of time, according to officials involved in the talks. The Obama administration called for a renegotiation of the pact to insert assurances outlined in the U.A.E.’s deal.

Like “The Who” said: New boss same as the old boss. Unfortunately, we continue to get fooled again.

The State Department’s top official on nonproliferation issues, Undersecretary Ellen Tauscher, visited Amman in December to discuss the agreement, U.S. and Jordanian officials said. Jordanian negotiators are expected in Washington in the coming months to resume the discussions.

A spokesman for Ms. Tauscher declined to discuss the status of the talks Tuesday. “We continue to work with our Jordanian colleagues to conclude an…agreement,” the official said.

Translation: a lefty career politico had a nice exotic vacation sipping fruit drinks and eating halal shawarmeh at the king’s desert oasis, while she engaged in academic double-speak with her Arabic buddies and negotiated the giveaway of America’s nuclear secrets.

King Abdullah announced in 2007 a program to develop nuclear technologies as a means to secure Jordan’s energy independence. Jordan imports virtually all of its petroleum supplies from neighboring Arab states, and the country is facing severe water shortages. Jordan also has a rapidly growing population that has been swollen by an influx of Iraqi refugees since the U.S.’s 2003 toppling of Saddam Hussein.

Um, yeah, PALESTINIAN Iraqi refugees. That’s who they are. They were protected by Saddam, and when he went down, they came to Jordan. “Energy independence,” my butt. This is all about developing nuclear weapons.

Another money quote:

Amman is hoping to use its vast supplies of recently discovered uranium ore to fuel a clutch of nuclear reactors by the end of this decade. Jordan’s government also seeks to use the uranium to power desalination plants that can produce potable water from the sea.

“Jordan is 96% dependent on importing petroleum,” said Prince Zeid. “Our uranium assets give us the hope that we won’t be entirely energy dependent on other nations in the future.”

Yup, they have the uranium. And now Uncle Sam will help ’em develop it into a way to drive Israel (and even America) to doomsday.

Brilliant. Can you imagine us giving our nuke tech to Mussolini? The Albanian SS Unit? Same difference here.

Alhamdillullah [Praise allah]. America is even more stupid than we thought.

but, but, but I thought Obama has a yiddishe nishama!

Anyway, I don’t understand why Jordan requires nuclear info or why the need for the U.S. to share such info, unless of course, it’s all about an arm’s race.

J.S. on February 10, 2010 at 1:39 pm

As the crow flies, Debbie, Amman is about 65 mi. East from Tel Aviv. That’s pretty close for fallout and if they actually aim to hit between TA and Jerusalem, to get maximum Ground Zero effect, they are within the fallout range. I don’t think the “government” of Jordan is suicidal. Remember they are historically against the Palis for being the wrong tribe and are trying to remove citizenship from them, how’s that working for Queen Raina’s family? LOL
The idea is ridiculous but your crazy president is probably thinking, deter Iran, hem them in. Jordan borders Iraq, so they will be allies.

mk750 on February 10, 2010 at 1:43 pm

Oops. That’s 65 KM or only 40 miles. Even better for the fallout to blow back on them.

mk750 on February 10, 2010 at 1:45 pm

“I don’t think the “government” of Jordan is suicidal. Remember they are historically against the Palis for being the wrong tribe and are trying to remove citizenship from them, how’s that working for Queen Raina’s family? LOL

You are assuming that the preseent government will be around in a decade. Also, why do you assume that Jordan would use a multi-megaton nuclear device? Tactical nuclear weaponry or low yield warheads on short range missiles would be more than up to the job. Finally, you can be sure that the elite in Jordan would be heavily protected or out of the country before any nuclear exchange occured. Moslem majority countries tend to be quite indifferent towards the well-being of their citizens.

Worry01 on February 10, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    good points Worry, I guess living here, I look for the worst possible scenario to be coming my way.

    mk750 on February 10, 2010 at 3:51 pm

None of these arab muslim countries should be given any info on nuclear technology, period. That also goes for the commies. Withholding all info on nuclear technology should help to keep most of these bass-ackward muslims from building their own nukes. On their own, I don’t think they would be able to build any nuclear weapons for a couple hundred years.

Jarhead on February 10, 2010 at 1:59 pm

I’d agree that it would be bad for the people who live in Jordan to bomb Israel with a nuke. This logic fails, but giving Islamic governments credit for logical thinking has been the mistake of Washington for a while now.

See Barry Rubin’s post on “That “Cost-Benefit” Thing: How U.S. Intelligence Assessments Misunderstand Iran and Lots More in the Middle East:” http://rubinreports.blogspot.com/2010/02/that-cost-benefit-thing-how-us.html

Remember that King Hussein’s family isn’t really from Jordan… and Jordan isn’t Jordan but East Palestine British Mandate. He’s an Arabian who was rewarded the territory by the British. Hussein is interested in Mecca and Medina. Jerusalem Hussein would gladly destroy if it killed a Jewish state and it’s Gorquat trees. Don’t buy the line that he thinks the region is holy.

As for a regime change to the people which are mostly Palestinian… Debbie is right on. This is suicide. The only argument I might of had is these countries are going to go nuclear anyway and it is better to have them loyal… but that would be if these countries could be loyal. Essentially Obama is saying we can’t contain their advancement now and it is better to create a history of cooperation with our own suicide. I fail to see the logic in assisting our own suicide. If Jordan really wanted a friendly relationship they would build one with nuclear Israel. They are after all the same territory.

Noah David Simon on February 10, 2010 at 2:05 pm

    Noah, also some good points except the current kind is Abdullah, Hussein’s son. H died several years ago. But I think any overt cooperation especially as large as making a nuke together would bring the wrath of the other 20 Arab nations down on Abdullah and he’s not willing for that to happen. Some things are happening however that probably the rest of the World doesn’t ever hear about.

    Also, of course *your* Hussein is suicidal, he’s a muslim terrorist.

    mk750 on February 10, 2010 at 3:57 pm

      so Abdullah doesn’t use his father’s last name? I did not know that. I did know the father died.

      Think how many great Chess games are won by sacrificing a powerful piece on the board. It is laughable that Obama is making such a linear argument

      Noah David Simon on February 10, 2010 at 6:37 pm

      …and what makes this even more confusing is the new heir to the thrown is Prince Hussein. but if you look at my comment I said the family of King Hussein. I believe the correct wording would of been the “family of King Al Hussein”

      here is an interesting link of the family tree http://www.kinghussein.gov.jo/rfamily_hashemites.html

      Noah David Simon on February 10, 2010 at 6:51 pm

Nukes For Islam. And we believe they are more moderate than the mullahs in Iran? It takes just one nuclear device going off in Israel or in the West to change the world forever. If this know how gets transferred to (yes, its fungible) terrorists, what’s going happen in the future will make 9/11 seem like a minor hiccup.

America needs to wake the heck up!

NormanF on February 10, 2010 at 2:27 pm

Just OBAMA helping out his brethren before he’s voted out of office.
Same thing Clinton did for the China, which is why we’re in this arms race yet again. These low-lifes pass out nukes like they’re baseball cards.
But stupid Americans vote them in power anyway.

Sic Semper Tyrannus on February 10, 2010 at 7:19 pm

Actually, I can imagine our giving nuclear technology to Mussolini, and possibly even Hitler until the late 30s. Mussolini was highly regarded in the United States at that time, restoring Italy from the ravages of WWI, creating order out of chaos, and he had an extremely outgoing personality. He was well read, and a pseudo-intellectual capable of impressing many. Most spokespeople on most college campuses thought well of him during the 30s, as did most politicians and newspapers, although there was a little cooling off after the 1935 invasion of Ethopia. And of course, every respectable campus limited the number of Jews.

Hitler was viewed favorably also by most. We all know the stories of the 1936 Olympics.

The same kinds of bubbleheads today in the press, Congress, the Administration and the universities as in the 30s.

Meantime, we’re giving Jordan the nuclear technology, but refusing to give Israel the technology it needs to overcome the soon-to-come updated Russian air defenses of Iran.

Little Al on February 10, 2010 at 8:02 pm

Well put, Little Al. I’m reading a book on how the universities just loved Hitler before WW2, despite active opposition by politicians and the mainstream. Sadly, Robert Maynard Hutchins of the University of Chicago (one of my alma maters) was one of the Hitler-loving jerks, though he was less bad, it seems, than the president of Harvard.

skzion on February 10, 2010 at 10:54 pm

KING HUSSEIN OBAMA will make sure Muslims will have a nuclear arsenal before he leaves office. Either Iran will be allowed to develop nuclear weapons or he will just hand it over the secrets. Where are all the liberals and GreenPeace people demanding the end of nuclear power? They have successfully stopped construction of many nuclear power plants here in the U.S. but are silent when Muslims want nuclear power.

CaliforniaScreaming on February 11, 2010 at 1:50 am

American Jews continue to almost uniformly vote for officials who support policies that undermine Israel. Such a stiff necked, arogant people! You may very well eventually be responsible for the destruction of your own native country. Jews should divert their big fat mouths from supporting every liberal, progressive cause to supporting what’s best for the USA and Israel. And as a moderate Christian I say: “Get off my ass with your anti Christian politics and social causes!

Samoyed on February 11, 2010 at 6:12 am

US presidents, after Ronald Regan are selling out America to anyone with a peso or a petro-dollar and Americans keep electing and re-electing traitors.
What can Americans expect?

Alert on February 11, 2010 at 10:44 am

Not all of us Americans voted for him, many of us are extremely worried about what he is up to next and feel he is bordering on treason.
