"Nuclear Weapon Free" Middle East Meeting Produces Smile

Israel and Iran attended a nuclear disarmament meeting last month. The Toronto Star reported:

Delegates from Saudi Arabia, Russia, China, India, the United States, France and Britain were among the 24 participants at the Cairo conference.
The media continue to play their lapdog part:

Israel is widely believed to possess nuclear arms, though it refuses to confirm or deny it. Iran denies international allegations it's secretly trying to develop nuclear weapons.
Did they forget Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert admitting Israel had nuclear weapons, naming his country in a list of those with the Bomb.

Israel gets to keep their secret, even in front of the 24 participants:

Iran's representative, Ali Ashgar Soltanieh, meanwhile, asked Zafary-Odiz point-blank if Israel has nuclear weapons, the paper said. It quoted eyewitnesses as saying she smiled but did not respond.
If the International Commission on Nuclear Nonproliferation and Disarmament can't start off with the facts, they have a very tough road to hoe. It gets worse if America remains Israel's lapdog.
