The Israeli regime develops nuclear arsenals as an imperialistic tool to menace world nations and destroy their independence, a political analyst said.In a Sunday interview, Ralph Schoenman, the author ofHidden History of Zionism, pointed to Israel’s history of using nuclear weapons, including in Cameron in 1986, and described Israel’s nuclear arsenals as “threats to the people of the world. ”
The analyst said that nuclear weapons “define the relationship of Israel and the Zionist[entity] to imperialism” and noted that utilization of weapons of this nature are aimed at terrorizing the nations that Israel seeks to dominate and destroying their sovereignty.In August 1986,1700 people and all livestock in Nyos village in Northwest Region of Cameroon were mysteriously found dead. The incident has been purported to be caused by a CO2 gas leak from the depth of Lake Nyos nearby.
Schoenman, however, argued that contrary to the gas leak theory, numerous independent probes and documents have revealed that “neutron weapons have been used and tested by the Israelis with the approval and collusion of the United States and the imperial powers notably France. ”A new report published byThe Guardian reveals Israel has been secretly building its nuclear arsenal since the 1950s with a minimum of international criticism thanks to support from its Western allies. The report says Tel Aviv has managed to assemble an entire underground nuclear arsenal, and lists the United States, France, Britain, Germany and Norway as major contributors to the Israeli programs. The Israeli regime is widely believed to be the sole possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East with up to 400 nuclear warheads. In its Yearbook 2012, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute said that Israel possesses at least 80 “highly operational” nuclear warheads. Israel also invariably refused to either allow inspections of its nuclear facilities or join the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
