I thought I'd do a thread on Israel's "illegal" nuclear facility of Dimona. Yes, we have all heard about it and read about it and thanks to the
pictures obtained and released by Vanunu, it is the worst kept secret in the mid-east.
Here is a 5 minute documentary using vanunu's pictures and testmony and some pretty good 3D computer graphics to show us exactly what Israel has and
is doing at it's Dimona plant.
Now, before we go any further I would like to mention that I'd prefer contributors to this thread to comment of the illegality of the facility and
implications on other nations and the double standards within the international community in general.
Here is some further information I found from the search function on Dimona here on ATS for those who want some more information -
Now according to the google video above, Israel had built the rector in the 50's and produces approximately 10 nuclear weapons are year. Now if we
say they started producing nuclear weapons conservitively in 1960 at 10 weapons per year, that would make them have about 470 nuclear weapons by now
would it not?
Im not sure what the shelf life of a weapon is, but that seems like alot of "acknowledged illegal" weapons that they have.....the very same thing
that Iran is trying to do now....or so we think.
The question should be, why is Israel allowed to flout international law and obtain illegal nuclear weaponary when nobody else is allowed the same
The US has now even placed Syria on the Nuclear watch list-

ROME (AP) - A senior U.S. nuclear official said Friday that North Koreans were in Syria and that the government in Damascus may have had contacts with
"secret suppliers" to obtain nuclear equipment.
Andrew Semmel, acting deputy assistant secretary of state for nuclear nonproliferation policy, did not name the suppliers, but said there were North
Koreans in Syria and that he could not exclude that the network run by the disgraced Pakistan nuclear scientist A.Q. Khan may have been involved.
So Syria, Iran and North Korea have been placed on nuclear watch lists, even thou there is no actual evidence of a nuclear weapon being manufactured,
but Israel, who HAS nuclear weapons does not get the same scrutiny!!! WTF
If the USA and the international community had any shred of credibility for the rule of law, then the rule of law would have been appied equally to
everyone, meaning that Israel should have had airstrikes against it many years ago after defying numerous UN resolutions, the same goes for Iran,
Then you raise the question, why can the US, Russia,China, Britain, France, India and pakistan have nukes and deny others the same?
