The Australian’s Abraham Rabinovich reports from Jerusalem that Israeli commandos seized nuclear material of North Korean origin during its daring raid on a secret military site in Syria early this month. The Israelis followed that up by bombing the site - ISRAELIS GRAB NUKE MATERIAL.

This breaking of a news story of such major importance to the world should have received a far greater response from the major media organisations. Perhaps they simply don't believe that North Korea, Syria and Iran could possibly be up to their armpits in such a messy situation?

At least the Melbourne Age gives it a passing mention in today's editorial on the dangers of a possible war in the region fueled mainly by Syria's involvement in the assassination of anti-Syrian leaders in Lebanon. Notwithstanding this, if fighting starts my guess is that, based on the past history of the region, it will be the Israelis who receive most of the blame.
