According to then Israels leader Ben-Gurion, (1) Israel “has no plans for producing nuclear weapons”; (2) Israel had no plutonium (3) it would not accept International Atomic Energy Agency - IAEA inspection. This was the 1950's.
" Israel's nuclear programme has been an open secret since a disgruntled technician, Mordechai Vanunu, blew the whistle on it in 1986, the official Israeli position is still never to confirm or deny its existence" Estimates as to the size of the Israeli nuclear arsenal vary between 75 and 400 nuclear warheads.
Israel the hypocrites they are ,repeatedly lied to the IAEA , international atomic weapons inspectors about Israels nuclear weapons program, something they acuse Iran of doing, but of course Israel unlike Iran did do exactly that. They even went as far as to build false walls and hide 'special rooms' from the nuclear inspectors.
Was Israels weapons program built for defense, no not really , Israel was caught trying to sell nuclear warheads to the racist aparheid regime of the 1980's South Africa. Click the links.
international laws don't apply to 'friends of America', just ask the Saudis ,beheading more people than ISIS and using cluster bombs in Yemen against civilians as Americas proxy army, a war crime or the monarchy of Bahrain, home of the largest US naval base in the mid east, who kill , imprison and torture dissidents for wanting freedom, all backed by the USA in the name of protecting American assets.
