    Lots of words, nothing new. Relations between the IAEA and the Israeli Atomic Energy Commission remain excellent. That both are somewhat subject to earthquakes is known and that the Soreq reactor is under full IAEA safeguards and supervision is something that Israel usually avoids mentioning as it prefers to portray the IAEA as being an enemy of Israel. That the Dimona reactor is not under any safeguards or inspections is also not news. Only Israel believes amimut fools or satisfies anyone. Flaunting it's nuclear weapons production capability while assuring us that it is in the good graces of the IAEA (which it is) only serves to aggravate the claims of 'hypocrisy' and 'double standard' raised by Israelis enemies. The story has lots of words, which serve only to aid the enemies of Israel. That the people running the nation sought to plant the story with the ever supplicant Yossi Melman indicates just how badly the government of Israel is disconnected from reality. This story was no reply to Iran's twaddle of last week. Alas, it only confirms and aids the efforts by Iran to change the subject from it's failure to fully comply with the IAEA.
