Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – The Saudi Arabian government has been covertly receiving information on the creation of nuclear weapons from the government of Israel, according to Ami Dor-on, a senior Israeli official at iHLS (Israel’s Homeland Security).

iHLS bills itself as the “leading hub for the homeland security ecosystem globally and in Israel” — and is partially funded by U.S. weapons manufacturer, Raytheon, according to a report by MintPress News.

Israel is not a declared nuclear power, yet, but is believed to possess hundreds of nuclear weapons. The Israeli government has steadfastly refused to become a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Why is Israel’s nuclear arsenal not mentioned in Iran deal debate?, McClatchy DC

Israel has as many as 100 nuclear warheads and systems to deliver them

But U.S. officials don’t mention them under a 1969 agreement

Iranian nukes would challenge Israel’s unique Middle East position

BY JONATHAN S. LANDAY jlanday@mcclatchydc.com WASHINGTON , 19 Aug 15, 

There’s one major issue that President Barack Obama, his supporters and his critics assiduously have avoided as they battle over the deal designed to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons: Israel’s own nuclear arsenal.

An open secret for decades, the Israeli stockpile is estimated at some 80-100 warheads, though Israel refuses to confirm or deny its existence under a policy of deliberate ambiguity. The arsenal was developed as the ultimate guarantor of the Jewish state’s survival against threats from its hostile neighborhood.

Yet as the sides joust over the Iran deal’s impact on Israel’s security, Obama has been silent on the Israeli arsenal as a potential deterrent against Iranian cheating on the accord. Opponents, led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, haven’t touched the issue, either. And it hasn’t figured in the public hearings that Congress is holding as part of a 60-day review that will culminate in a Republican-led bid to kill the Iran accord next month.

To some experts, the fierce debate over whether the Iran deal endangers Israel or makes it safer will be incomplete and misleading as long as it skirts the Middle East’s only nuclear arms stockpile………http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/world/article31470917.html

Israel, Not Iran, Started Middle East Nuclear Arms Race

| 29 July 2015 | The debate about the P5+1 agreement with Iran on its nuclear program has already produced a storm of angry rhetoric and a tsunami of opinion pieces. But one issue is notably absent from the debate: the fact that Israel has a nuclear weapons arsenal and sophisticated delivery systems that are decades ahead of anything Iran could develop in the foreseeable future. Iran should be constrained by a global regime from getting the bomb, but the notion that Israel is a weak powerless state like Czechoslovakia in 1938 is ludicrous. The American intelligence community first detected the development of the Israeli nuclear weapons program through U-2 overhead imagery at the end of the 1950s.

The performance of fading imperial power becomes more dangerous with each new crisis it faces, whether real, imagined or the logical outcome of its weakening intellectual and moral foundation which threatens the material structure we call civilization. Even while Greece is being treated with the near economic savagery previously reserved for developing and non-european countries, the attempted step into reality in recognizing Iran’s importance in the world, especially its dominant role in the middle east, is accompanied by enough hypocritical gall and bloody arrogance to make ISIS look very reasonable by comparison.

Having suffered brutal western assault since their Islamic revolution of 1979 which discarded a minority government of European toadies for a more homegrown majority representation of its people, Iran has finally forced the USA, though not its seemingly conjoined-by-dollars twin Israel, to face at least a small part of reality. But this tiny recognition of what most of the world, especially many people in the middle east, already knows is accompanied by a tremendous amount of backlash-to-logic.

The bellowing of both the Israeli leadership and its Knesset Caucus in the USA continues treating Iran as some major threat to humanity and especially settler innocents in a colony of supremacists from Europe who’ve established a homeland in the middle of a Semitic world. But that’s okay because god said it was really theirs, a thousand or two thousand years ago or so. And even if many of those euros are atheists who say they don’t believe in god. Business is business and real estate is a big business, especially when the realtor is a deity.

The appalling arrogance necessary for the only nation to have invented and used nuclear weapons to stand over another and make sure it doesn’t create such a maniacal arsenal is enough to make hyenas and jackals barf as they perform nature’s dictates in eating the dead. But this is on a par with the settler chorus singing hosannas to peace and democracy while it bludgeons Palestinians into bloody colonial victims while its own collection of nuclear death dealing remains secret to all as long as they believe in the easter bunny and the tooth fairy.

The master race is indeed threatened by any rising independent power against its dominance in a world it considers its private market, especially the oil mall in the Middle East. Adherents to The Chosen psycho politics swear that Iran, as eventually the entire world, is intent on genocidal extermination of the Jewish nation. That last has been an ongoing program since biblical times, at least according to a minority interpretation, which could lead one to wonder how there are any people left who call themselves jewish. Given the reality of a near extermination of native people in what became the USA, and with no scriptural or historic evidence of any such plan beyond bloody racist colonial conquest, it may be miraculous that there are still descendants of native people here, though somehow, there are more Jews in the USA than Indians. And that’s without an Indian narrative of a euro-gentile-islamic-jewish conspiracy to annihilate them. Hmmm.

Material reality be damned, the American multi-cultural master race, even as it performs homicidal attacks on its own, is aligned with the never without existential threat chosen nation of Israel, even as it performs daily horror on palestinians in proving its godliness – even to its atheists –in screeching loud and clear the awful threat to humanity posed by Iran.

The most heavily armed nation that spends more money on weapons than any other and maintains foreign military bases in hundreds of countries should be feared, but it is not Iran. Except for those believers in the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy, it is the USA. And the most heavily armed military power in the Middle East, including nuclear weapons, is not Iran. Except for believers in the world being created in six days and the 911 conspiracy beginning on the seventh. Yet, this fanatic mindset with no substance in reality and as sensible as what provoked the racist murderer in South Carolina or the race supremacists in Tel Aviv would have it that Iran is a menace that must be contained. And who better to do the containing than the most belligerent, feared and hated countries in the world, asserted so by polling and arrived at by common sense and experience?

Those who espouse these political-economic-religious views do not try to hide the madness between their ears by wearing propeller beanies on their heads, so they are not identifiable simply by sight. They look just like us, even if they exercise infinitely more power than we have as long we allow them to reign under the guise of democracy. But if that up to now fictional theory doesn’t soon become practical reality, the idiocy that is bringing all of us closer to breakdown will not involve an idiot with a gun opening fire in a theater or a church, but maniacs with missiles, drones and nuclear weapons destroying more of the earth and its people than they have ever done before. Iran, like the rest of the world, deserves our respect as a nation and a people. As long as we allow ourselves to be led by disrespectful supremacists, we’ll have only ourselves to blame if or when the worst happens. We should take action before that dreadful day arrives.

Israel built, exploded ‘dirty bombs’ in nuclear tests – report

— Israel has what is widely considered to be an extensive nuclear weapons program that it has never declared

| 08 June 1015 | Israel built and exploded so-called “dirty bombs,” explosives laced with nuclear material, to examine how such explosions would affect the country if it were to be attacked by the crude radioactive weapons, the Haaretz daily newspaper reported Monday. The Haaretz report, which included photographs, said the project conducted 20 detonations with explosives laced with a radioactive substance. Mini-drones measured radiation levels and sensors logged the force of the explosions, Haaretz reported.

————————————————————————————————–

This week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu broke with American protocol and delivered a speech before the US Congress without consulting the White House first.

Many Democrats viewed the speech as an attempt by a foreign leader to chastise and change Washington’s foreign policy efforts, specifically with regards to Iran over its alleged efforts to obtain nuclear weapons.

Netanyahu criticized the Obama administration, saying its efforts to negotiate a deal with Tehran “will not prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. It would all but guarantee that Iran gets those weapons, lots of them.”

Obama said Netanyahu didn’t offer any “viable alternatives” to the nuclear negotiations with Iran, while adding “there was nothing new” in the speech. However, there were some things Netanyahu failed to mention that deserve brief consideration.

Here are five of them.

5. Iran has taken sides with Jewish people in the past

“Yesterday, the devil came here. And it smells of sulfur still today…”

 

Hugo Chavez, after George Bush spoke at the U.N. 9/20/2006

 

If Chavez were still with us and in attendance at the joint session of America’s congress addressed by the Israeli leader, he might have sniffed fire and brimstone along with the madness he identified in the American president’s politics. AIPAC and its Knesset caucus in our government continue to feverishly spread stories of Iran’s threat to the planet should it ever acquire nuclear weapons, even as it seems embarrassed by the Israeli leader’s nit-wit chutzpah to make their own seem almost tastefully modest by comparison.

 

But the alleged threat posed by Iran’s phantom nuclear weapons is not nearly as important to humanity as it is to Israel and the ongoing annihilation of the Jewish people. That last has been in process since biblical times and involves almost everyone who isn’t jewish constantly plotting and often attempting to wipe out all jews, which makes it almost miraculous that there are any jews left anywhere on earth. The near total destruction of the native people in what became the USA is not treated in so terrifying a fashion, yet said “indians” are to be found in very few numbers in their former homeland, and then mostly in places called “reservations”, shameful places so named to make it sound like they were going to dinner rather than being shipped to a concentration camp.

 

Murdered by the tens of thousands in mass slaughters that were called “wars” in early propaganda, and totally robbed of their homeland, if this barbaric treatment had them live in as much present terror as some jewish people are programmed into, they might never sleep again while compelling much of america to watch an endless loop movie-tv-stage drama-college class re-enactment of the near extermination of a people to pave the way for something called a civilized democracy for a supposedly exceptional nation.

 

But the Iran fantasy went on for years before israel got into the act, with the US helping destroy Iran’s democratically elected nationalist government back in 1953 and doing all in its power since then to suppress, degrade and cripple the revolution of 1979 which has had the audacity to attempt to right the wrongs of a generation of totalitarian brutality under a regime practicing non judeo-Christian religious dogma. What master race of self-chosen deities could tolerate that? All this in the name of free markets, expensive weapons, mass murder and petro profits.

 

Israel got into the act with a vengeance once the fact of a powerful nation that might counter its domination of the area began driving its leadership, and their toadies in the USA, into more feverish hysteria about the menace of a people who never did anything to them or America but retaliate and even then, hardly on a par with the havoc and murder wreaked upon it by the USA.

 

In fact, if Iran had ever taken vengeance on the USA with anything like the heartless fury with which it has been treated, the tragedy of 911 would seem very mild by comparison.

 

So now we are warned of the possible terror to be practiced by this nation which has neither created nor shown any interest in creating nuclear weapons, first by the master race cult that did create and is the only one to ever use nuclear weapons on humans, and second by the chosen people cult which has a nuclear weapons stockpile and a narrative of suffering endless terror while it treats palestinians exactly as america treated indians and nazis treated european jews. But past suffering, both real and legendary, make it okay for israel to have these weapons on the sneak, since no one is supposed to speak of either the master race or its chosen people partner as anything but the pinnacle of humanity and beyond criticism from the lesser billions with no such legends or narratives of suffering and infallibility.

 

We are so great and wonderful that everyone hates us because we are so great and wonderful – but – they can’t say so because in our wonderful greatness we will kill them if they speak such blasphemy. And of course, they are endlessly conspiring to destroy us; the master race because they are such masters and the chosen people because they are so chosen. If that sounds incredibly stupid if not insane, check out your governments which would never be so honest – and possibly be embarrassed to admit the idiocy of it all if they were – but create and follow policies which say it with weapons and military domination, said dominance believed to be based on the masterful race of these chosen people, dubbed such by themselves and in keeping with the hypocritic oath taken by all their leaders.

 

From the right to the left, liberal or conservative, listen to how these nations are referred to as special, more important than any other, necessary to the survival of humanity, even if the political economics of master racist chosen people are actually the greatest threat to the future of that more humble group of billions neither self identified as master or chosen.

 

Something dubbed the “international community” regularly pontificates on what the world needs, which is more power for that international community, which actually represents a tiny fraction of earth’s population. And lo and behold; that fraction lives in the USA and Israel and worse, represents only a small fraction of its people. That much larger number had best exercise democratic power over its increasingly fanatic owner minority and their leadership cult before the real international community has to take action and subdue the crackpot masters and their self-chosen idiot partners before the entire race suffers the consequence of their social disease.

 

Governmental power in both the USA and Israel needs democratic fumigation before the stench of nuclear devastation contaminates everyone and everything. Sulfur will smell like perfume if we continue to let these mental and moral cripples rule us into oblivion.

FBI foils its own terror attack plans, once again: US nuclear scientist secretly taped by FBI claiming he could bomb New York

| 29 Jan 2015 | A disgruntled, former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist promised to build 40 nuclear weapons for Venezuela and design a bomb targeted for New York City in exchange for “money and power,” according to secret FBI recordings released Wednesday. In the recordings, Pedro Leonardo Mascheroni tells an agent posing as a Venezuelan official that the bombs would prevent the United States from invading the oil-rich nation and brags to his wife that the passing of secrets would make him wealthy. The recordings were played Wednesday in US District Court in Albuquerque before a federal judge sentenced Mascheroni, 79, to five years in prison followed by three years of supervised release as part of a plea agreement.

‘The world suffers global recession, enormous inequity, hunger, deforestation, pollution, climate change, nuclear weapons, terrorism, etc. To those who say we’re not really making progress, many might point to the fact that at least we’ve eliminated slavery.

But sadly that is not the truth.

One hundred forty-three years after passage of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and 60 years after Article 4 of the U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights banned slavery and the slave trade worldwide, there are more slaves than at any time in human history — 27 million.

Today’s slavery focuses on big profits and cheap lives. It is not about owning people like before, but about using them as completely disposable tools for making money.’

U.S. Navy’s Next Generation Nuclear Reactor Program Fully Funded By:  USNI News  January 9, 2015 WASHINGTON NAVY YARD — Development work for the reactor that will power the Navy’s next generation nuclear ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) was fully funded in the so-called Fiscal Year 2015 “cromnibus” that was signed into law last month, the head of the service’s Naval Reactors told USNI News on Friday.

submarine-missile

In addition to the $156 million Ohio-class Replacement Program (ORP) reactor development included the Department of Energy’s FY 2015 budget, Congress also included $126.4 to refuel the service’s S8G prototype reactor in West Milton, N.Y. and $70 million to dispose of reactor waste as part of an existing facility in Idaho………

Aging nuclear arsenal grows ever more costly LA Times,  By RALPH VARTABEDIANW.J. HENNIGAN contact the reporters, 8 Nov 14 Pipes, tanks and other equipment rust in the humid Southern air. Leaky roofs leave puddles on factory floors. Abandoned buildings are scattered across an 800-acre site contaminated with hundreds of tons of mercury.

If this were a factory making cars in Detroit or steel in Pennsylvania, it would have long ago been shuttered.

But this is the Y-12 National Security Complex, a linchpin of the Energy Department’s nuclear weapons complex, responsible for making thermonuclear assemblies for hydrogen bombs.

The 1940s-era plant is part of a weapons program that has become increasingly costly to operate because of aging equipment, deteriorating facilities and soaring overhead costs. At its root, it is bloated and mismanaged, say former Energy Department officials, outside experts and members of Congress.

The nation’s nuclear weapons stockpile has shrunk by 85% since its Cold War peak half a century ago, but the Energy Department is spending nine times more on each weapon that remains. The nuclear arsenal will cost $8.3 billion this fiscal year, up 30% over the last decade.

The source of some of those costs: skyrocketing profits for contractors, increased security costs for vulnerable facilities and massive investments in projects that were later canceled or postponed……..

Now the Obama administration is moving forward with a plan to modernize the strategic weapons system over the next decade, an effort the Congressional Budget Office estimates will cost $355 billion. That comes as the Pentagon is under pressure to reduce its budget, and outside experts warn that the modernization could reach $1 trillion over the next 30 years……

The eight major nuclear weapon labs and production sites are run by a network of joint ventures and private companies, including the University of California, Bechtel Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp., Honeywell International Inc. and Lockheed Martin Corp.

 The increases came after a series of embarrassing security lapses at Los Alamos National Laboratory while it was managed by the University of California. The lapses led to a movement to pay more and demand far stricter security. http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-nukes-cost-20141109-story.html#page=1

Panetta reveals US nuclear strike plans on N. Korea, spurs controversy

16 Oct 2014 US war plans against North Korea recently included the option of a nuclear strike, former CIA Director and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta revealed in his memoirs, triggering major controversy. Panetta described a 2010 briefing in Seoul by General Walter L. ‘Skip’ Sharp, the commander of US forces in South Korea, where it was made clear that the nuclear option was on the table if North Korean forces crossed into the demilitarized zone (DMZ) between the North and the South. “If North Korea moved across the border, our war plans called for the senior American general on the peninsula to take command of all US and South Korea forces and defend South Korea– including by the use of nuclear weapons, if necessary,” Panetta wrote in ‘Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace’.

Globally, there are thousands of nuclear weapons hidden away and ready to go, just awaiting the right electrical signal. They are, writes investigative reporter Eric Schlosser, a collective death wish — barely suppressed. Every one is an accident waiting to happen, a potential act of mass murder, he says.

“When it comes to nuclear command and control, anything less than perfection is unacceptable because of how devastatingly powerful these weapons are,” Schlosser tellsFresh Air’s Dave Davies.

Schlosser, best known for his book Fast Food Nation, spent six years researching America’s nuclear weapons, interviewing many involved in developing defense policy and in maintaining and deploying weapons systems, and examining government documents.

His new book Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety is a critical look at the history of the nation’s nuclear weapons systems — and a terrifying account of the fires, explosions, false attack alerts and accidentally dropped bombs that plagued America’s military throughout the Cold War.

“One of the themes of my book is about how we are so much better at creating complex technological systems than we are at controlling them,” he says.

“It’s only since the Cold War ended that we’ve been able to find out how close we came, again and again, to having our own weapons detonate by accident, or potentially be stolen, or potentially be used by people without proper authorization.”   Interview Highlights……….. http://www.npr.org/2014/08/11/339131421/nuclear-command-and-control-a-history-of-false-alarms-and-near-catastrophes

Gordon Duff puts out all the latest Intel from http://www.veteranstoday.com which is the number one mainstream and alternative media website in the world now because of the huge stories they are breaking!

Gordon Duff describes how it is now a FACT that 9/11 was a nuclear event. This has been confirmed by the US Government, UN, Russian government and French Government. Russians leaked key evidence proving the nuclear weapons used as payback for the US involvement in Syria and Ukraine. Their evidence was confirmed by US sources and French sources.

The Sandia labs report on the nuclear weapons used on 9/11 was leaked by the Russians. The US government knew immediately that 9/11 was a nuclear event but the investigation was stopped because it would have taken down Bush. Members of Congress were told about the nukes used on 9/11 but covered it up. Crooked judges stopped all lawsuits relating to this information.

Gordon Duff reports that VT’s nuclear 9/11 articles are being cleaned off the internet and are not being spread by other alternative media sources due to threats in some cases or due to the fact that many in alternative media are controlled opposition and gatekeepers.

VeteransToday.com is under massive attack now and the patriots behind it are fighting back!

CNN at first said they would report the proof that 9/11 was nuclear but later squashed the story. VeteransToday is the ONLY group in the world that put out the information.

The nukes used on 9/11 had no visible flash, the flashes were in the infrared range with a 100 foot range on most of them.

The government tried to kill FBI Agent, Mike Dick who was working on investigation of 9/1! The FBI issued a “mistaken” BOLO (Be on the Look Out) alert on him saying he was armed and dangerous and sent a team out to kill him! He is now suing US Government.

ISIS is a Saudi,CIA, MI-6 front. It is a large psychological warfare group that is very effective.

Boko Haram is being run by 9 Generals in the Nigerian Army! All theater!

A nuclear attack on the US is being planned to setup the next election. Dept of Energy says attack coming. Will be blamed on Iran to start war on Iran. They plan on killing 100,000 to 200,000 Americans. It will be reported as a nuclear bomb and they already have the weapon selected for the attack. American people looked at like cattle.

Everything you’ve been told about Benghazi has been a lie. The ones screaming the loudest are the ones responsible.

US is setup as a slave labor police state.

40% of Congress blackmailed over sex with children.

Over 9,000 people died of radiation due to 9/11 nuclear event before they stopped counting. Currently over 79,000 dying due to radiation related illnesses.
