  1. ” …the item was sold to a French company which, in turn, sold it to the Chinese who, in turn, may’ve given or sold it to the Iranians. ”

    How has Israel violated sanctions by selling technology to France?

    1. @ Pip: Are you claiming that the U.S. should have no grounds for complaint against Shalit & that Israel washed its hands of the technology once it left Israel’s shores? Because if that’s what you ARE claiming, that’s not at all the premise on which Washington invited Shalit to fall on his sword. The premise the U.S. is observing is that Shalit & Israel are responsible for the fact that this got into Chinese & perhaps Iranian hands.

      Your perspective is incredibly convenient for someone seeking to wash his hands of a problem he created. But fortunately the U.S. has enough leverage not to allow you or Israel to get away with s(^t like that.

  2. You wrote a second article about Uzi Arad a day later. I added a comment with a WikiLeaks reference to the NPT discussion and the Middle East.

    The leak, published by several media organizations last July, asserted that the United States and Israel had reached substantive understandings in secret talks on the civilian nuclear issue. Washington was furious and demanded an investigation into the source of the leak. Netanyahu complied, and the culprit eventually proved to be Arad.

    The secret talks took place in June 2010, shortly after Obama infuriated Israel by backing a resolution on a nuclear-free Middle East at the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review conference. A month later, reports on the secret talks appeared simultaneously in Haaretz, on Channel 2 television and on Army Radio. According to these reports, the United States had given Israel unequivocal guarantees that its “strategic capabilities” in the nuclear field would be preserved and strengthened.

  3. And in 2005, two senior Defense Ministry officials – director general Amos Yaron and chief of security Yehiel Horev – were forced out due to Washington’s anger over Israel’s agreement to upgrade Harpy drones for China, following a year in which the Pentagon boycotted Yaron entirely.
