Spiegel: Israel equipping German-built subs with nuclear-tipped missiles
Israel is equipping submarines built in Germany with nuclear-tipped cruise missiles, according to Der Spiegel magazine.
The magazine also reported Sunday that the German government has known about Israel’s nuclear weapons program for decades, despite its official denials.
Memo to the Obama Administration; OK, the metaphorical cat is really out of the bag on this now.
There can be no “cloak of ambiguity” for the Israeli government henceforward: Israel is a nuclear armed nation, and has been for years.
Under the Symington Amendment, it is illegal for the US government to give any arms or monetary aid to any country which is nuclear-armed, but refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT and have its nuclear facilities inspected.
Israel is now, without question, a nuclear-armed country which refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT or have its nuclear sites inspected.
Mr. President, thinking Americans, many of whom are in terrible economic times through no fault of their own, are waiting for an executive order, declaring all military and financial aid to Israel over until it becomes a signatory to the NNPT, and allows full inspections of their nuclear weapons.
We are waiting for an answer, Mr. President.
