Like ethnic cleansing and apartheid, stealing is perfectly okay if Israel's doing it.

South Africa admitted supplying Israel nuclear materials in return for building SA's atomic bombs. SA turned over their bombs to us when the apartheid regime fell.

It was a trade.  Tritium for uranium.

I thought we already knew this, not officially in the sense that we have a sworn affidavit from Golda Meir, but in the "everybody knows" sense. For example, Clancy's novel The Sum of All Fears mentions the theft. (I think. Feel free to correct me.)

Enriched uranium may be available in the drugstore in 1984. But it's a little hard to come by in 1955!

Their stats show them to be awful at ethnic cleansing and apartheid. Perhaps the Arab nations, who are pretty good at it, should give them some tips.

"Every single empire in its official discourse has said that it is not like all the others, that its circumstances are special, that it has a mission to enlighten, civilize, bring order and democracy, and that it uses force only as a last resort. And, sadder still, there always is a chorus of willing intellectuals to say calming words about benign or altruistic empires, as if one shouldn't trust the evidence of one's eyes watching the destruction and the misery and death brought by the latest mission civilizatrice." - Edward Said

If by "ethnic cleansing," you mean pretty much the exact opposite.

Palestinian population growth rate since the founding of Israel is actually higher than the population growth rate of the United States over the same time period.

I think the major fact of this is that the Israelis certainly have shown quite a bit of restraint in not using their nuclear arsenal as of yet, considering all the crap that's been going on.

Not much restraint in other ways mind you.

As we know, it's only official when we get it from an official source, and someone on the Internet acknowledges it; even if its something that has been in the press and available for scrutiny since the turn of the previous millennium.

Nazi Germany showed that you can't commit subjugate or exterminate a people in a matter of years, because the world will catch on. But if you do it across generations, it's less noticeable, like with the American Indians.

I'll just point out the fact that the population's age distribution is remarkably low for the region and hope you think and reflect on that.  I doubt you care though.  You just want to show everyone else how much intellectually superior to us you think we ... wait, that syntax was too clunky to recreate, sorry...

Yeah...^^^THESE^^^.

Because if enough weapons-grade uranium to make several bombs was really "stolen" just a few years after JFK was assassinated the CIA would have turned over heaven and earth to find out who did it and get it back. So, let me say it right out loud...the USG gave it to Israel, or at least stood by while it was "transferred".

Nothing to see here, folks...move along.

How to read data:

The average life expectency of 75.01 years ( from your link) which is higher than Russia's (and many others)

Meanwhile, there's a very good  reason there's a low age distribution: that the average woman has 4.65 kids! (check out TFR rates in the UN estimates in the page you sent me: and this number is actually less than the peak of 8.0 also during the occupation!).

This is in comparison to 1.89 for the US. Of course there's going to be a disparity, that what occurs when you have a population explosion (3.422% (2008 est.) compared to 0.7% for the US , and from 1.0 to 3.94 million from 1970 to 2009, again from your link).

Why spoil it and reveal this article is from the Iranian official state-owned broadcasting organization ? a bastion of truth and neutrality when Israel is concerned.
Personally I prefer PressTV's Holocaust denial articles and their anti-semitic shiat in general. Fun read.

Excellent find Submittard. PressTV is always an entertaining read. Probably not for the reasons you indented though.

shower_in_my_socks: Well that's OK because we have to defend everything Israel does because reasons.


Actually, shifting the narrative on this one, both admitting that they have nukes and admitting that they got them from us ("stole" from a mysteriously unguarded storage facility, I imagine, but still) in violation of a bunch of treaties is probably the precursor to threatening them with outright  sanctions.  Effectively over their current attempts at ghettoization and genocide, thought technically over the nuke thing.

It's... not a good sign for a nation that exists almost entirely on the sufferance of the first world for its bullshiat.  If sanctions actually happen (they won't, israel will back down after the usual secret meetings) Israel's got about 5, maybe 10 years left before it'll be wiped off the map.  So hopefully it doesn't take too many more of these 'hints' for them to back off and let the Palestinians have things like, y'know,  farking food.
