Both France and Israel helped the Apartheid regime in South Africa develop a nuclear bomb. In return Israel got 50 tons of Uranium to their own nuclear bomb program.
The Israeli President Shimon Peres offered South Africa Israeli Ballistic Missiles that could carry Nuclear warheads. This was in 1975, while Israel was isolated after the Yom Kippur war. In those days, few nations in the World was willing to offer Military assistance to Israel, holding on to the Sinai desert for its own security.
In return for their gesture towards the Apartheid regime, Israel received 50 tons of Uranium in 1977. This was nuclear fuel for the Israeli Nuclear weapons program.
Yesterday the UK paper The Guardian published claims from Sasha Polakow-Suransky, an American academic who uncovered a series of classified memos detailing South Africa.
According to secret South African documents, Shimon Peres, then Israel’s defense minister, responded to a request in 1975 for Jericho Missiles by offering to fit them «in three different sizes» The Guardian reported.
According to Mr Polakow-Suransky, whose findings are published in a book published in the United States this week, Israel «formally offered to sell South Africa some of the nuclear-capable Jericho missiles in its arsenal» during a meeting on 31 March, 1975.
The disclosed documents does not display that Israel offered South Africa nuclear warheads. Only ballistic missiles that could cary such warheads. Eventually, South Africa developed its own nuclear bomb. The proposed deal to buy missiles from Israel was never executed.
How could Israel deal with the in moral Apartheid regime?
Israel was not alone. Norway exported oil to South Africa, and France sold them military equipment. Israel was in need of nuclear fuel in form of Uranium. South Africa had plenty, and was willing to sell.
Should Israel have avoided to deal with the Apartheid regime?
Yes, and no. If the West had been willing to share their nuclear technology with Israel, the Jewish state would not have been forced to deal with the Apartheid regime.
Why should only nations like the US, England and France have the right to defend them self with nuclear bombs, and not Israel?
Should Israel have ran the risk of letting an Islamic nation achieve a nuclear bomb, before the Jewish state?
The answer is no.
Israelis feel that they can only relay on the Jewish people for its own security.

Again Israel is singled out as the black sheep. Most of the Western World traded with the Apartheid regime in South Africa.
Nuclear nations like United States, England, France Russia and China were not willing to help Israel with its own nuclear program.
Where was the Jewish state going to seek support?
Both South Africa and Israel felt the need to develop nuclear weapons for their own protection. in 1983, The Apartheid regime decided to start to dismantle its six nuclear warheads.South Africa signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 1991,
Why blame Israel alone, for dealing with them?
Anyhow. Politics is a dirty game. We who are not Jewish, and love Israel, know that the return of the Messiah Jesus is their only hope.
