    Not withstanding the support for Netanyahu, expressed in the annual meeting of the Southern White Trash (A.K.A Republicans), the explanations for the cancellation of Netanyahu's attendence at the W.H conference on control/reduction/elimination of nuclear material for military purposes, is an act of cowardace and pettiness. The topic can be broached in his absence as well, but he prefers to avoid dealing with it. He knows everyone will look at him as a pariah and he has no guts to face a hostile crowd. He knows Israel is one of only 4 states which did not sign the NPT and he cannot defend it. And he knows he cannot answer why, with its nuclear power, Israel does not feel secure to make the necessary concessions and sign a peace agreement with the Palestinians, and why Israel with its nuclear arms has the right to deny Iran its?. Isarael was the first to introduce nuclear arms into the ME, and it is still the only one. The pressure is on. Netanyahu should face it like a man.
