Documents found that show that S Africa was thinking of buying nuclear warheads from Israel.
I\’m not sure how surprising that is but still.
Anyway, what to look out for now: people cliaming that this proves that Israel is acting illegally in having nuclear weapons….and the corollary, that if Israel has them then why can\’t Iran too?
This will of course be said somewhere in the wilder reaches of the net….for everything is said somewhere in such wilder corners. The question is, will it manage to reach the pages of CiF? Or even The Guardian?
Oh, perhaps I should explain what\’s actually wrong with the argument as well. Iran has signed the NPT promising not to develop nuclear weapons. Israel has not. So in developing nuclear weapons Iran would be acting illegally under international law, Israel not.
