The Elephant in the Room: Israel's Nuclear Weapons

I am, of course, referring to Israel's actual nuclear weapons systems, with which Netanyahu is capable of doing to numerous cities in the Middle East, including Tehran, what the US did to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

Iran, by contrast, has no nuclear weapons. The US President said so himself in Prague on 5 April 2009 in his major speech on nuclear disarmament. "Iran has yet to build a nuclear weapon," he admitted.

$2.775 billion in US aid supports Israeli nuclear weapons program

Israel contends Iran is secretly developing nuclear weapons under the auspices of a civilian program, though no hard evidence has emerged. However, an illicit nuclear arsenal in the region has been positively identified.

The US Army (PDF), former President Jimmy Carter, and Assistant Secretary of State Rose Gottemoeller have all recently confirmed that the only country in the Middle East that has deployed nuclear weapons is Israel. The Symington and Glenn amendments to foreign aid law specifically prohibit US aid to nuclear states outside the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT). Iran has signed. Israel hasn’t.

Congress can’t have it both ways on taxpayer funded sanctions and rewards. If gasoline imports indirectly support Iran’s nuclear ambitions, then $2.775 billion in cash for conventional US weapons and military technology clearly allows Israel to spend other resources on the development and deployment of its illicit nuclear arsenal.

This to me is truly what is frightening.....

That even if the Revolution is inevitably won.....

That country that place, known as 'Israel' has enough nuclear bombs to destroy 10-20 cities inside the United States especially if the Federal Reserve is dealt a death blow.

And I doubt there is any man, nor woman, who has looked at the overall picture & included the consequences of that......I never thought I'd see the day where it becomes mandatory to ask whether it was a good idea to give Israel that many nuclear bombs & weapons to begin with....

Yep Israel has

200+ nukes but our MSM never mentions that...

No mention in MSM ....ever!

The Symington and Glenn amendments to foreign aid law specifically prohibit US aid to nuclear states outside the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT). Iran has signed. Israel hasn’t.
