Israel’s Dirtiest Secret, Nuclear Weapons, No Secret Any Longer – Except In USA

Few Americans know that Israel illegally possesses a huge stockpile of nuclear weapons, all undeclared and illegal, as Israel is not part of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Israel has publicly admitted to being a nuclear power on numerous occasions, as noted below.

The BBC wrote in the 2008 article, “Israel ‘has 150 nuclear weapons”, that ” Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert included Israel among a list of nuclear states in comments in December 2006, a week after US Defence Secretary Robert Gates used a similar form of words during a Senate hearing.”

An Israeli official publicly admitted to his government’s possession of nuclear weapons again, in late 2013.  The Guardian wrote in January 2014, “When the former speaker of the Knesset, Avraham Burg, broke the taboo last month, declaring Israeli possession of both nuclear and chemical weapons and describing the official non-disclosure policy as ‘outdated and childish’ a rightwing group formally called for a police investigation for treason.”

Israel’s nuclear weapons program was self-declared even more recently, in March 2015, in a Washington Times article titled, “Barack Obama’s love bomb offensive,” with the following paragraph,  “…the United States has declassified a 386-page report that reveals in minute detail Israel’s super-discreet nuclear program. Everybody knows Israel has one, but until now Israel, with American support, has never acknowledged it. To do so, all mature hands have agreed, could set off a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.”

Americans hearing this information for the first time have every right to be angry, even mortified.  This is not a matter of speculation, it is completely true.  Israel, with its historic pattern of launching attacks on its neighbors, is quite possibly the biggest threat to world existence.

What do Americans know?  Well, they know Iran stands accused of “seeking” to build a nuclear weapon.

The accusation is tragically similar to the Bush Administration’s endless, incessant talk of Iraq having “weapons of mass destruction” which were a direct threat to the US, during the build up to the Iraq war, which were purely bogus and has cost close to a million and a half lives…. so far.

It is a simple fact that “threats” of nuclear weapons delivered through the media, can practically stand the world on end.  The very notion brings to mind the raw idea of human extinction.  The fear of this idea is painfully ground into our public psyche every day via US mainstream press and TV – only about Iran, which “could” some day be a threat, the Israeli government says – while Israel exists with its hand already on the red button.

It’s also fair to mention that we exist in a world where a plethora, in fact an unknown number of illegal nuclear weapons, are available on the world market.  Many disappeared during the termination of the Cold War, along with the materials and the people needed to build more.

With respect to missing nuclear weapons, the Council or Foreign Relations wrote, in an article titled, “Loose Nukes”, that before its collapse in 1991, “the Soviet Union had more than 27,000 nuclear weapons and enough weapons-grade plutonium and uranium to triple that number. Since, severe economic distress, rampant crime, and widespread corruption in Russia and other former Soviet countries have fed concerns in the West about loose nukes, underpaid nuclear scientists, and the smuggling of nuclear materials. Security at Russia’s nuclear storage sites remains worrisome”.

It seems a natural conclusion, that Iran would have long been an actual nuclear threat if it’s leaders wanted it to be.

Helen Thomas, Obama and the Unanswered Question About Israeli Nukes

Never let it be said that a US journalist never tried to bring light to Israel’s stockpile of nuclear weapons, into public view. They were, as GW Bush would say, “weapons of mass destruction.”  Veteran reporter, the late Helen Thomas, attempted to force it out of Barack Obama’s mouth with the famous question posed by Thomas at the White House, “Mr. President, do you know of any country in the Middle east that has nuclear weapons?”  It was a simple question but the guy from Chicago wouldn’t go near it, as The Real News reveals in the video below.

President Carter’s 2008 Revelation of Israeli Nuclear Weapons

Former US President Jimmy Carter revealed the fact that Israel has at least 150 nuclear weapons in September 2012. The former president made the claim during an appearance in Wales, as The BBC reported.

Carter’s unprecedented quote, “The U.S. has more than 12,000 nuclear weapons; the Soviet Union (sic) has about the same; Great Britain and France have several hundred, and Israel has 150 or more,” caused a panic among supporters of Israel’s government.  That’s because Israel follows a policy of ambiguity and has never admitted that its arsenal contains nuclear weapons.

“The problem is that there are those who can use these statements when it comes to discussing the international effort to prevent Iran getting nuclear weapons,” said Aharon Zeevi-Farkash, a former Israeli intelligence official, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.

They began their article with: “Jimmy Carter, in violation of a decades-old U.S. policy, publicly acknowledged that Israel has nuclear weapons.”

No Nuclear Secrets for Israeli People

Israeli people are well acquainted with the knowledge that their country possesses probably hundreds of illegal nukes, they are also well aware that the so-called Jewish state is not part of the International Nuclear Proliferation Treaty. If any Muslim country were to be in the same position, the western powers would blow them from the face of the earth. This is a classic example of the old “do as I say not as I do” paradigm. Israel has long skirted international law as the United States has for years, held what is known as “Super Veto Power” in the United Nations. The Americans have used this power to cloak Israel and deflect its war crime and human rights violations for decades, even when the vast majority of nations in the UN called for sanctions and charges.

Tens of millions of Americans go about their day totally unaware of this severe transgression of international law.  Yet the news media, seemingly all day every day… talks about how Iran “might” be working toward building a nuclear bomb – a statement to which there is absolutely no proof of any kind – and they keep the world in turmoil.

However there is a staggering amount of proof, and noted admissions from Israel, about their nuclear weapons program and the Israeli nuclear facility called Dimona in the Negev Desert.

The Rest of the World Already Knows – Only Americans Live in the Dark

An extremely daring former employee of the Dimona Nuclear Facility in Israel, Mordechai Vanunu, shocked the world in the 1980’s when he traveled to London and delivered photos of the nuclear facility and associated weapons to The Sunday Times.

As the 2011 video above that I produced shows, Vanunu was almost immediately kidnapped in the UK by Israeli Mossad and taken back to Israel, where he would serve nearly two decades in prison, mostly in solitary confinement, for having revealed this painful, dirty secret about illegal Israeli nukes.

Frank Barnaby, a nuclear physicist by training, began working in nuclear related issues in 1951.  He held numerous positions and by the 1980’s, was employed by the Oxford Research Group, where he researched civil and military nuclear issues.  A major aspect of his work was the study of various aspects of nuclear weapons, beginning with work at the British Atomic Weapons Establishment at Aldermaston, and more recently in relation to the 2005 Non-Proliferation Treaty review Conference

In September 1986, Dr. Barnaby was employed by the Sunday Times to interrogate Mordechai Vanunu.

He stated, “I found that Vanunu was very straightforward about his work at Dimona and about what he did and did not know and made no attempt to discuss matters outside his experience and knowledge. This, and the photographs he brought with him, considerably increased his credibility. I discussed Vanunu’s information in some detail with other nuclear physicists, particularly the eminent American nuclear-weapon designer Theodore Taylor, who also found it credible.”

Nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu

Vanunu told Frank Barnaby that his motivation to release the information and photos of Dimona, was for the sake of humanity.

“When I questioned Vanunu about his motives for violating Israel’s secrecy laws he explained to me that he believed that both the Israeli and the world public had the right to know about the information he passed over.  He seemed to me to be acting ideologically.  Israel’s political leaders have, he said, consistently lied about Israel’s nuclear-weapon programme and he found this unacceptable in a democracy”.

And lest we forget, Israel stands accused of using what experts describe as a “neutron bomb” in Yemen in recent months, while flying an F-16 aircraft (which Saudi Arabia does not possess) with Saudi markings and insignia painted on the side. This very likely, was a bomb drawn from the illegal Israeli Dimona nuclear facility.

So make no mistake, we’re all living in a cloud in the United States, it is a cloud of informational obstruction; a method to keep Americans thinking one way, when it is truly in their best interest to be able to view this particular subject with an open mind.
