This important BBC profile of Israel’s nuclear weapons was first broadcast in March 2003, two days before the start of Bush and Blair’s horrific illegal invasion of Iraq for non-existent WMDs. Olenka Frankiel’s Israel’s Secret Weapon is a worthwhile view and timely given the warmongering directed at NPT signatory Iran’s planned nuclear program. It also highlights the consequences for Dimona workers who have cancer and the use of Israeli experimental weapons against Palestinians in Gaza. It profiles a number of people who have spoken up publicly about this nuclear rogue state, the most prominent of whom is nuclear whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu but also includes former Israeli Arab MK Issam Makhoul who first broached the issue in the Knesset in 2000 and key Israeli nuclear scientist Brig. Gen. Yitzhak Yaakov whose life was effectively destroyed for daring to breach the shroud of deception and secrecy. You can find a full transcript of Israel’s Secret Weapon at EI [Part One; Part Two].
