Iran tries to shine light on Israeli nukes

JERUSALEM (AP) - With a few words in a largely conciliatory speech to the United Nations, Iran’s new president took aim at an Israeli fear: that international pressure on the Iranian nuclear program could lead to scrutiny of Israel’s own secretive nuclear facilities. Israel is widely believed to possess dozens of atomic weapons under a program dating back more than half a century. But in a major pillar of its national defense strategy, it neither confirms nor denies having these weapons - a policy known as “nuclear ambiguity” meant to keep its enemies off balance.

Of course, Israel has nukes. LBJ gave nukes to them, something JFK adamantly refused to do...and paid with his life for his refusal (to lay the basis for WWIII).

Attis, it was not LBJ that gave nuke technology to Israel. It was France, get your fact's strait.
