Olmert indicates Israel has nuclear capability
By JPOST.COM STAFF
In a move unprecedented by any Israeli leader, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Monday included Israel in a list of nuclear nations
In an interview with the German television network SAT 1, Olmert was asked about the statement by newly-appointed US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates regarding Israel's nuclear capability.
The prime minister became enraged when he was asked if the fact that Israel possessed nuclear power weakened the West's position against Iran...
This is not news to anyone who has been following Israel's history for any length of time, but it is a major problem for the Israel-firsters in the US, who justify the billions sent to Israel on the need for poor little Israel to defend itself against those mean ol' Arabs.
But now it is confirmed, Israel isn't defenseless. It has nuclear weapons, not subject to any controls at all, with which to threaten their neighbors.
Remember the invasion of Iraq? Remember the REASON we were told we had to invade Iraq, because Iraq had NOOKULAR BOMBS! Of course, as it turned out, they didn't. The nukes are down in Israel, where the Arab nations, Mordecai Vanunu, and assorted bloggers have been telling you they were all along.
So, Olmert has just exposed the total hypocrisy behind the invasion of Iraq.
Needless to say, this also pounds a huge dent in Bush's rush to attack Iran because they MIGHT have a nuclear weapon in ten years, versus Israel's now officially admitted nuclear arsenal and a history of attacks against neighbor nations.
In finally admitting that Israel has had nuclear weapons all along, Olmert has made every US Politician who ever stood up and portrayed Israel as a weak and helpless nation deserving of our billions in tax dollars look like a total blithering idiot at best, at worst complicit in a defrauding of the American taxpayer for the benefit of a foreign nation.
Every politician who ever stood up in Congress supporting yet another appropriations bill for Israel with the claim, "Israel must be defended", must be categorized as a liar. Israel didn't need defending. They just wanted more of our money any way they could get it. And with a few contributions from Israel's spies, they got it.
You, the taxpayer, have been SWINDLED! Israel has had a nuclear deterrent to protect itself all along, but still tricked you into paying for its "defense". And your Congresscritters helped them do it.
UPDATE: Already this story has been "orwellized" to try to pull back from Olmert's comment about Israel's nuclear weapons. The current spin is that even though Olmert openly talked about Israel's nuclear weapons, that this is not an "official" admission that Israel has them.
