Nuclear scandal: Israel is right

The Guardian published a story of Israel agreeing to sell nuclear warheads to South Africa in 1975. Though Shimon Peres weaselly denied the report, the affair is in fact well-known and true.

So yes, we offered to sell a few nuclear warheads to our close ally, so what? And it was not exactly a sale: South Africa took part in Israeli nuclear program. Likewise, Pakistan delivered several nuclear kits to Saudi Arabia in return for funding Pakistani nuclear program. Pakistan requested North Korean nuclear assistance to Iran in return for revealing Pakistani nuclear technologies to the communists. This kind of nuclear cooperation is common.

And moreover, Israel offered nuclear assistance to the Shah of Iran, though Peres kept saying later that we intended to cheat the Shah like we cheated him on conventional weapons: receiving huge advance payments and delaying the deliveries forever.

Israeli cooperation with the apartheid South Africa was relatively small. Arab and African states, the first to condemn the apartheid regime, accounted for the bulk of South African trade. Western countries supplied South Africa with weapons.

We need not be ashamed of our friends, especially when they are replaced with the black terrorists of Nelson Mandela’s ilk, enemies of Israel and the friends of our Arab enemies.
