ISRAEL SHIPPED $400K IN GOLD TO NORTH KOREA DESPITE UN BAN

Israel shipped in recent years $400,000 in gold to North Korea in defiance of a UN ban, it emerged in a hearing of the Knesset Economics Committee on Wednesday.
Israel was required to give explanations for the exports.

The committee approved Wednesday the import and export order regarding the regulation of export goods to North Korea and forbidding luxury exports, as per UN Security Council Resolution 1718, adopted in 2006.

Committee chairman Eitan Cabel (Zionist Union) criticized the delay in submitting the order for committee approval.

A representative of the Economy Ministry’s legal department, Dalit Rennert, presented the order and said it would allow supervision of exports to North Korea and set that the export will be allowed only with a license. Likewise, the order sets a list of luxury products banned from exports.

When Cabel asked if there had been any exports to North Korea, David Khoury, the export director of the Israel Tax Authority, replied, “To my regret there was export of gold, and regretfully [the UN] discovered this and we were required to give explanations.” He estimated the value of the gold exports amounted to $400,000.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why did Israel do this?!?

Because the Israeli government of the country believes it can do anything it wants with impunity, and is above the law, including international law, and was surprised when it got caught doing this.

But the question must be asked of a nation which, some years back, attempted to sell nuclear weapons and technology to apartheid South Africa: if they are willing to sell gold to North Korea, in spite of a UN ban to do so, what else are they willing to sell, if they believe they will get a nice price for it?!?
