Whiny little rump king complains: Israel trying to prevent him from going nuclear

The whiny little king of the 'country' created to appease the Hashemites for their loss of Mecca and Medina is complaining to the media (in this case the Wall Street Journal) that those mean Jooos are trying their darndest to prevent him from becoming a nuclear power. Gee, ya think?
In the interview, King Abdullah accused Israel of pressuring countries like South Korea and France not to provide nuclear technology to Jordan. He said Israel's "underhanded" actions had helped bring Jordan-Israeli relations to their lowest point since a 1994 peace agreement.

"There are countries, Israel in particular, that are more worried about us being economically independent than the issue of nuclear energy, and have been voicing their concerns," King Abdullah stated. "There are many such reactors in the world and a lot more coming, so [the Israelis should] go mind their own business."

Large deposits of uranium were found in Jordan and the government is eager to develop these energy resources to increase its independence from oil imports.

The US, on the other hand, would like Amman to commit to importing its nuclear fuel to prevent the possibility of any uranium being diverted for military purposes.

Under the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) that Jordan has signed, Amman retains the right to produce its own uranium fuel.
Arutz Sheva adds:
Israel has denied the accusations. About 65,000 tons of uranium ore were discovered in the deserts outside Amman in 2007, and geologists are combing other parts of the country for additional deposits which could be marketed as is or used in proposed Jordanian plants for domestic and exported power.
I have a present for the World's whiniest king:
