    Israel and weapons of mass destruction
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Israel is widely known to possess weapons of mass destruction, and to be one of four nuclear-armed countries not recognized as a Nuclear Weapons State by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).[1] The US Congress Office of Technology Assessment has recorded Israel as a country generally reported as having undeclared chemical warfare capabilities, and an offensive biological warfare program.[2] Officially Israel neither confirms nor denies possessing nuclear weapons.

    [edit] Nuclear weapons
    Main article: Nuclear weapons and Israel
    It is believed that Israel had possessed an operational nuclear weapons capability by 1967, with the mass production of nuclear warheads occurring immediately after the Six-Day War.[2] Although no official statistics exist, it has been estimated that Israel possesses from 75 to as many as 400 nuclear weapons, which are reported to include thermonuclear weapons in the megaton range.[3][4][5] Israel is also reported to possess a wide range of different systems, including neutron bombs, tactical nuclear weapons, and suitcase nukes.[6] Israel is believed to manufacture its nuclear weapons at the Negev Nuclear Research Center, a highly secretive nuclear installation located near Dimona.
    Delivery mechanisms include Jericho intercontinental ballistic missiles, with a range of 11,500 km, and which are believed to provide a second-strike option. Israel's nuclear-capable ballistic missiles are believed to be buried so far underground that they would survive a nuclear attack.[7][8] Additionally, Israel is believed to have an offshore nuclear second-strike capability, using submarine launched nuclear-capable cruise missiles, which can be launched from the Israeli Navy's Dolphin-class submarines.[9] Although the Israeli Air Force lacks strategic bombers to deliver nuclear weapons over long range, its F-15I and F-16I Sufa fighter aircraft are capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

    Now don't go to posting facts. You will soon be called an anti-semite, racist and maybe even Un-American

    Iran has threatened Israel.
    Israel has never declared to wipe Iranians off the map.
    But Khomeini and Ahmadinejad have said that the occupying regime (Israel) must be wiped off the map because they can't compromise over the issues of Palestine.
    Israel has every right to protect it's people.

    Israel has been invaded more times in 50 years than most countries in 500 years. Of course their security is paramount, and thus the development of nuclear weapons.
    Iran has fomented terrorism for about 20 years, and its leadership is sworn to wipe Israel off the map.
    The "facts" posted are the selective variety that the anti-Israel creatures love so much.

    Well, um, yeah, you go in and steal someone's land and make them second class citizens in their own country, don't be surprised when they attack you.

    Israel should never have excisted at the place they are. If US care so much about Israel, donate Alaska to them they have a lot of space, Palin loves Israel and they need more people to drill for oil etc.

    Their will never be peace in the middle east, so give the israelis Alaska and let the arabs take Israels land.

    NOpe. The Israelis were Europeans who moved their because a European empire invaded the place. They have a dubious claim to be the descendents of the folks that lived there 3000 years ago, but they are really just Europeans who adopted their religion.
