Ex-US President Jimmy Carter has said Israel has at least 150 atomic weapons in its arsenal. The Israelis have never confirmed they have nuclear weapons, but this has been widely assumed since a scientist leaked details in the 1980s. Mr Carter made his comments on Israel's weapons at a press conference at the annual literary Hay Festival in Wales. He also described Israeli treatment of Palestinians as "one of the greatest human rights crimes on earth".
On top of this he held talks
"One of the greatest human rights crimes on earth is the starvation and imprisonment of 1.6m Palestinians," he said.
In April he controversially held talks in the Syrian capital Damascus with Khaled Meshaal, leader of the militant Palestinian movement Hamas.

This thread is a great object lesson in the delusory worldview of the far right.
Israel's nuclear arsenal is a fact and has been for decades.
Carter is simply stating something obvious, but not "PC" in the eyes of the far right, so he's getting pilloried for it.
