1.  EMBASSY AMMAN AGREES THAT SUBJECT PLAN IS AN IMPORTANT 
GOAL.  THE GOJ ALREADY HAS A VERY HELPFUL POSITION ON THE 
ISSUE OF WMD AND WE DO NOT BELIEVE THAT PROACTIVE PUBLIC 
ENGAGEMENT ON THE ISSUE WILL BE USEFUL WITH OUR AUDIENCE. 
GIVEN THE CURRENT POLITICAL REALITIES IN THE REGION, PUBLIC 
ENGAGEMENT ON WMD HERE WILL ONLY ELICIT NEGATIVE REACTIONS 
EMPHASIZING THAT ISRAEL MAINTAINS AN ACTIVE NUCLEAR PROGRAM. 
ADDITIONALLY, THE TOPIC WILL BE SEEN AS JUSTIFICATION FOR AN 
ATTACK ON IRAQ.  EMBASSY AMMAN WILL, HOWEVER, BE PLEASED TO 
HIGHLIGHT THE WMD WEBSITE ON OUR HOMEPAGE.
