Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to apartheid South Africa?
Newly released top secret South African documents reveal that Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to apartheid South Africa in 1975. Israel was represented by current Israeli president Shimon Perez (winner of Noble Peace Prize!!!!!). The deal did not go through because of the high price requested by Israel.
Is this yet another evidence that Israel not only possesses nuclear weapons, but it also tried to sell them to third parties?

Your document says Perez offered to sell missiles with three different size payloads. The author assumes one of those was an atomic bomb. Then it points out that the government of Israel would have to approve the sale and they probably would not. Pretty misleading I think.
Of course Israel has nuclear weapons. Since they've never had to test them, they must be confident they will work. The US makes reliable nuclear weapons.

Not true. Journalists have been passing this around since the 80s. It started out as a rumour that Israel and the South African government partnered to develop nuclear weapons and tested them in the Indian Ocean. Like all other liberal wet-dreams, when the liberals aren't getting enough attention, the story grows. You're just the latest in a long line of idiots who continue to pass old trash. **************** Are these "documents" as real as the faked Bush memo or the faked #10 Downing memo? Guardian is "reputable"? So was Dan Rather.
