Israeli Nukes

Has the world forgotten the revelations made by Mordechai Vanunu, a former Israeli Nuclear Technician, in late 1986? Israel's nuclear program began in 1950's through the collaboration of French government with Israel (David Ben Gurion and Shimon Peres) to set up a Nuclear reactor and associated facilities in the Negev Desert, proclaimed in the beginning as a textile factory.



But the U-2 Spy Plane photographs unraveled this mystery, for which some people believe John F. Kennedy lost his life, because he was about to disclose the real nature of this facility as determined from those aerial photographs. Later for many years Israel would not even allow any American government official to visit that place. But Vanunu before leaving that place had taken photographs of forbidden areas that the British authorities conformed as genuine pictures and estimated around that time that Israel had more than two hundred nuclear warheads and some were thermo-nuclear devices (aka hydrogen bombs).



Here are important dates in Israel's Nuclear Program:

1949: Visit to Israel of French nuclear scientist Francis Perrin. Israel discovers uranium in the Negev desert.



1952: Creation of the Israeli Atomic Energy Commission (IAEC) under the authority of Defense Ministry. Development of Dostrovsky method for production of Heavy water.



1953: Department of Nuclear Physics established at the Weizmann Institute. French-Israeli nuclear cooperation agreement.



1955: First discussion of nuclear cooperation with South Africa. Start of U.S.-Israeli nuclear cooperation.



1957: Secret agreement with France to build Dimona reactor (initially dubbed as textile factory) and plutonium separation plant.

1958: Department of Nuclear Science established at the Israel Institute of Technology (Technion).



1960: Research reactor at Nahal Soreq goes on line. Ben Gurion tells Kenesset about the Dimona reactor. 1963: Dimona reactor goes on line. Regular shipments of uranium from South Africa begin.



1966: Levi Wshkol reorganizes Israel Atomic Energy Commission, Bergmann resigs as Chairman. Eshkol cuts a deal with President Johnson and freezes Israeli unclear program. Israeli nuclear test in Negev.



1967: Degaulle severs ties with Israel. Moshe Dayan launches plans to accelerate Israel's nuclear program. 1968: Cabinet capitulates to Dayan's nuclear agenda. CIA suspects Israel of having nuclear weapons.



1972: Technological breakthroughs made in uranium enrichment (laser method).



1973: Golda Meier gives the order to arm nuclear warheads during Yom Kippur War.



1976: South African President Vorster visits Israel; new nuclear agreement forged.



1977: Israeli-South African test in in Kalahari desert detected by Soviet satellite and blocked by U.S. intervention.



1979: Israeli-South African test off South Africa coast. VELA satellite (U.S.) records the explosion signature.



1982: President Reagan sells advanced computers to Iraq.

It's not only that Israel has a large stockpile of nuclear weapons, but she also possesses a large stockpile of Chemical and Biological weapons. Thus all PEACE-LOVING people must stress upon the United Nations Weapons Inspection regime that all efforts should be made to send inspectors to Israel as she poses the greatest threat to PEACE not only to the Middle East but the entire world.



Why should the West be partial in this regards to disarm Iraq only and not a state like Israel?

Just another loser whinging about Israel. The Israelis have a right to be where they are. It was "ISRAEL" 5000 years ago not Palestine. On the other hand, Jordan has stolen most of the land the Palestinians should have. No Arab, or fellow traveller, ever whines about that.

Interesting Rar, but I'd like to know where you got that information from.
Obelix, 5000 years ago very few countries were what they are today, neither by name nor by culture. A pity? Sometimes, and sometimes not.
