Caught: Germany Bought Israel’s Nukes



The existence of an Israeli nuclear program is no longer a secret. This is not altered, Israel continues internationally on a mythology of “intentional ambiguity” and restricts any mention of its own nuclear weapons program under threat of strictest punishment.

Over the last few decades, all the secrets of Israel’s nuclear program have been made public. All – except for one thing: who financed the program. But even this last secret nuclear Israel can now be revealed. The country, which financed the nuclear arming of Israel with almost certainly is the Federal Republic of Germany.

That the former President of Israel, Shimon Peres, this has recently denied this again, is irrelevant. German-Israeli cooperation in the proliferation of nuclear weapons technology is still held in the strictest secrecy. In addition to that every Israeli leader enforces military censorship involving all nuclear weapons information.

Israel’s nuclear history began in 1952 with the founding of the Israeli Atomic Energy Commission. In July 1955, the Jewish state signed a contract offered by the United States to purchase under the program “Atoms for Peace”, a small research reactor for peaceful use. But even at that time Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion and the then Director General of the Ministry of Defence, Shimon Peres , had ulterior motives.

In November 1956 Peres asked the French Defence Minister Maurice Bourgès-Maunoury: “What will you say when Israel creates their own potential for nuclear retaliation?” A year later, Peres signed with representatives of the Mollet socialist government  three secret agreements. (Editor’s note:  France was part of NATO until 1961.  These acts were a violation of the NATO charter)

France provided a 24-megawatt heavy water reactor, Israel borrowed 385 tons of natural uranium and France would cooperate with Israel in the research and manufacture of nuclear weapons and help the country build a reprocessing plutonium separation plant.

Nuclear program ran from under the strictest secrecy


The construction of the reactor began in late 1957 near the town of Dimona in the Negev Desert. In 1964 it was done, a year later was the reprocessing plant was finished. The end of 1966, the Israeli engineers had their nuclear bomb. At the start of the Six-Day War in 1967 Israel possessed two ignitable warheads, at the outbreak of the Yom Kippur War in 1973 there were ten to 20.

Of course, all this came to an end in the strictest secrecy. But in 1960, the plant in Dimona was unmasked by the strategic reconnaissance of the United States. Moreover, the French President Charles de Gaulle demanded that Israel should clearly explain publicly the purely civilian character of the system.

The end of 1960, therefore, an appropriate statement was Ben Gurion from: the reactor was intended solely to non-military use of nuclear energy. In addition, we build in the vicinity of the reactor a scientific center for the study of arid zones.

With this obvious lie, the Israeli government had public pressure to justify the construction work in Dimona initially collected. But the apparent clarification, the investment of Dimona if it were a “textile factory”, did not alter the international assumptions about their true purpose.

Despite widespread distrust: Direct evidence of military use of Dimona was not available. For this particular situation a precedent was established in 1957, responsible for the protection of military nuclear program secrets – Lakam (Hebrew acronym).

Not even the ubiquitous even in Germany’s foreign intelligence service Mossad was informed about the structure of Lakam. Isser Harel, the then head of the Mossad complained later: “Lakam was built behind my back and without my knowledge.” But Lakam was successful – until 1986.

In October of that year, the “Sunday Times” published statements of Mordechai Vanunu, an Israeli engineer who had worked from 1976 to 1985 in Dimona. According to him, produced in Israel 40 kilos of plutonium, enough for eight to ten bombs. The statements Vanunu were credible, not least because he had documented the inner workings of the system of Dimona up to the model of a hydrogen bomb by a large number of photographs.

Now it became clear that “Dimona” not only the name of a heavy water reactor was but nine other buildings included, of which at least one of six floors had been built underground. From this the core of the system, the reprocessing plant to production plutonium was constructed.

Dimona was a complete nuclear weapons factory. Taking the representation Vanunu on the production capacity of the plant of Dimona as a basis, Israel now has at least 200 strategic nuclear weapons Hiroshima / Nagasaki Category (15 kilotons) as well as nuclear artillery shells.

How was the nuclear program funded?


A question about the Israeli nuclear program was not made after Vanunu’s revelations. How could a country like Israel at that time beggarly equipment like Dimona, in the work up to 2700 people, finance?

The question was not asked because it was considered to be answered long ago. The government Ben-Gurion had back in the early 60s, when it was gone officially only to the civilian use of nuclear energy in the reactor of Dimona, promised to the critics that the financing of the project would be carried out not by budget, but by international donors.

The responsibility was Peres: “We started a confidential fundraiser that yielded a total of more than $ 40 million, meaning half the cost of the reactor, then a very considerable sum.”

This statement by Peres is not only the only available quantitative indication of international donors, it also raises the question of who has paid the other half of the reactor. And who paid for the entire Dimona complex, so much more contained than one reactor and must therefore have been more costly many times?

Until today there is only one reference to a specific foreign funding of Israeli nuclear weapons program and the Peres $ 40 million. At one point, the question of German-Israeli relations once again caused quite a stir. 

Ben-Gurion, during a background discussion with editors Israeli newspapers on 31 March 1963, said that a confrontation with the Adenauer government could interfere with the development of a deterrent and that their importance for Israel’s security and the prevention of future wars is not be overestimated.  (Editor’s note:  In a few short months, President Kennedy, briefed on the German deal and demanding an end, was murdered.  4 years later a half century of continual wars was begun by Israel.)

Two billion marks from Germany


This statement was not the only one, he wrote the following to Ben-Gurion: The Federal Republic of Germany funded, since 1961, the Israeli nuclear weapons program, disguised as a contribution “to the development of the Negev”, a “hobbyhorse” Ben-Gurion  used since the days of the founding of the state. But how could this happen?

On March 14, 1960, Adenauer and Ben Gurion met in the New York hotel “Waldorf Astoria”. The two leaders agreed that the Federal Republic of Germany awarded Israel a ten-year loan from a total of 500 million – then two billion marks – in the “development of the Negev.”

The agreement was quietly implemented. It was not even an agreement in the technical sense and therefore neither the involvement of the Bundestag nor the Cabinet needed for the top secret ” business friend” – as was the code name in the records of the Foreign Office.

As Niels Hansen, recently deceased former Secretary of State at the Foreign Office and longtime German ambassador to Israel, stated in his fact-rich book “Out of the shadows of the disaster,” in December 1961 and agreement was made between the Israeli Affaires in Germany, Felix Eliezer Shinnar, and Rolf Lahr a Secretary of State at the Foreign Office.

The subsidized loans should be operated under title “Promotion of developing countries through bilateral capital grant aid”. The settlement should be done through the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW). The first were called blanket ‘industrial and infrastructure projects “. The net yield should be an average of 3.6 percent.

These formal conditions corresponded to the usual arrangements for capital assistance to developing countries; but the actual implementation of the “Business Friend” was performed under other “rules”. Thus, in the words of a German leaders KfW “unlike in all other cases in which it is active in the field of financing for development, the use of the Israel funds was never checked … it was never discussed with the Industrial Development Bank of Israel as well”.

Although Shinnar indicates that they had KfW on the use of funds “at regular intervals (…) to report” had, but it was apparently a mere formality. Accordingly, the information listed on the purpose of the loans, “Development of the Negev”, “textile factory” or “atomic-powered desalination plant in the Negev” were used as cover for nuclear weapons development facilities with full complicity by the Adenauer government. All these projects are specifically designated as top secret. The loan had to remain secret

Against this background it is not surprising that KfW to this day steadfastly refuses to make the “top secret” documents on payments to Israel in the context of “Business Friend” public. But to answer the question, what has become of the transfers, it does not matter too much. As Hansen commented on the basis of the documents of the Foreign Office, the payments ran under the “business friend” cover until 1973.

A total of more than two billion marks were about this item. The conditions for open years, interest and principal are hereby amended several times over the years – the last time in 1989 to a term of 30 years, ten years, and 2.0 percent interest.

As Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman in the book “Spies Against Armageddon” reports, quoting Lakam boss Blumberg;

Whenever it was necessary to justify the enormous ground movements in the Negev to build a huge imaginary textile factory, it was certainly clear that building a seawater desalination plant in the middle of the desert was never seriously intended to fool anyone.

Franz Josef Strauss as head of the grant?


Germany the lender, and borrower Israeli, used the specialized cover of ” business associate” the same purposes – “Development of the Negev”, “textile factory”, “desalination”.

The German money from the “Action Business Friend” in the Dimona project, that is, in the financing of a nuclear weapons factory: in other words. What this factory – regardless of the actual amounts paid two billion marks – has cost at least remains unknown until the French government, yes essential parts of the system has (in particular the reactor and reprocessing plant) delivered to disclose its bills.

To date, in any case, everything indicates that the loans have been enough “action business friend” for the financing of the nuclear weapons factory. More than that. Given the extremely favorable financial conditions of the “action business friend” (the last term of 30 years at 2.0 percent interest rate), the Israeli nuclear weapons development apparently financed not only by way of credit transfer, but the entire nuclear project was paid for directly by Germany.

According to Kurt Birrenbach, as long ago as 1965, Israel looked on the loan as a “grant” or “donation” based on the long term and extremely low interest rate.  As time went on, the entire credit line was converted to euros and eventually written off.

“Germany (…) tried helping to protect Israel against the dangers of the future”…Franz Josef Strauss, former defense minister

Only once a prominent German politician was directly associated with the financing of the Israeli nuclear weapons. In an article in the newspaper “Haaretz” of 19 January 1996 on “the German colony in Dimona” was a “forgotten Israeli novel” reported from the 60s, apparently due to a variety of pseudonyms for writers and persons acting at that time the censor had failed.

However, the decryption is not difficult. The central message is the claim that the German Defence Minister Franz Josef Strauss had authorized payment of 500 million Deutsche Marks to finance the reactor in Dimona. He had emptied an unauthorized “reptiles fund” of the German government, for which he was forced to withdraw the money later. (Editor’s note:  A “reptile fund” is typically a fund used to pay off rent-boy blackmail or cover up crimes by state officials.)

For these statements, there is still no evidence. Properly is likely to be that Strauss not only ran  German “military aid” to Israel, but also has the beginnings of the covert illegal nuclear proliferation program as well, a program that he helped shape.  Strauss met with  Peres, several times a year through the 1950s in Germany.

A remarkable transcript of a conversation in December 1957 in Strauss’s private home in Rott am Inn, with the Peres and  the German journalist Rolf Vogel reproduced the content of the meeting with Strauss:

“Germany took the further profound sense, a restitution to Israel, that is, it tried to help protect Israel against the dangers of the future. “

In this context may include the expressed repeatedly by Strauss notes that there are just things that you only disclose in the future and could for discussion.

With the knowledge of the “action business associate” the last yet open gap in the information on the German-Israeli relations is closed. That this was possible in the year of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, is a coincidence, but it met with satisfaction.

The German financial assistance for the development of the Israeli nuclear potential has the state of the Jews given a guarantee of survival of a special kind, which passed the originators of the “Action Business Friend” honor.

[ Editor’s Post Script:  The tone of the article takes on an odd aspect as our German allies seem to be bragging not only about how they have enabled Israel to violate dozens of international accords but that Germany herself stands convicted, in gross violation of NNP (Nuclear Non-Proliferation accords) and of her responsibility as a NATO member.

It is one thing that Germany knowingly financed an illegal nuclear weapons program or that Germany knowingly supplied submarines specially modified to launch nuclear missiles, another NNP violation. 

Germany also supplied the centrifuges for Israel as well, using metallurgy not developed in Germany but rather stolen from the US through espionage against a NATO partner.  

Note that in 1952, when Germany entered on this path of deception, they were still an occupied nation and would remain so for another 3 years.  What is being represented as “war guilt” for the holocaust is something quite different.  For years, Chris Story, Ben Fulford and Michael Shrimpton told us of a German spy organization called the DVD.

If the story above doesn’t sound like “James Bond bad guys” gleefully planning nuclear Armageddon, nothing does.  With what we now have proven about 9/11, the idea that so many knew all along that Israel was a nuclear power, that and knew all along that Germany has been complicit in playing nuclear blackmail games with Europe and the Middle East using Israel as a surrogate…

What this article exposes proves Shrimpton was right all along, any nation that would do this would certainly load a nuclear weapon on a midget submarine to blackmail Britain.  We received multiple high level confirmations on this.  At first we wanted Shrimpton to keep his mouth shut about the DVD as we lacked proof of the existence of this organization.

We have the proof right here and very little “dot connecting” is needed… Gordon ]

  1. The “back door connections” of today are a continuation of the Jew-NAZI connections prior to WWII that trace to the old city of London and Bavaria. Similarly, the true identity of the alias, George H. W. Bush. A German scientist type verified Bush Sr.´s identity for me in 2010, with the response, “Doc, NAZI families have always known his true identity.” The video by international journalist, John Buchanan, about the Bush family, is as valid today as it was in 2006. As to Werner Freiherr von Braun not being a NAZI, I find it interesting that he waited 25 yrs, after fraudulent importation by the Dulles brothers into the U.S., to reveal the NAZI plan for world dominance. There were many, trustworthy, other American patriots, prior to Dr. Carole Rosin, and prior to von Braun´s allegedly becoming infected with cancer.
    The Dulles brothers insured that the NAZI remain in control in Germany, by promptly reassigning general Reinhard Gehlen to Germany, where he renamed his WWII spy apparatus, the Bundesnachrichtendienst, the BND, initially the NAZI CIA sub-station in Germany, at the same old HQ in Pullach, near Munich.
    The term, communism, continues to be misused to represent Marxist tactics and dictatorship. Communism is a theory that humans cannot implement outside of very small groups, due to greed. Russia has never been communistic, nor China. Quasi-marxist dictatorships is a more fitting description.

  2. Jim and Gordon,
    It’s the French (not the German) covert help to Israel that caught my eye in the above story. Col. Ruhle says that Peres spoke with France in November 1956, and then signed the 3 secret agreements with them 1 year later. No date is give, but that would be approximately Oct. 1957 that those agreements were signed. And what was going on in the world, that might have given them cover for this? Why, it was none other than Sputnik I, the Russian satellite launched on Oct. 4, 1957, which transmitted for 21 days, and started the Space Race. So while the world was freaking out over Sputnik, France and Israel signed their secret deals. Great cover!

    According to Mr Shrimpton, Germany had their hand up their French as well as their Russian DVD assets.So we should now rethink the TIMING of Sputnik, as cover for a critical part of the Israel nuclear program deception.

  3. The following link provides a summary of comprehensive details regarding the fraudulent persecution of John Demjanjuk, by the USArmy OSI and the Simon Wiesenthal Jewish front group, in collusion with the Office of the Bavarian Attorney General in Munich, 2008 – 2012. Demjanjuk died in a rest home near Munich, March 2012. One wonders how the fellow could hold out during all these years of fraudulent persecution.

  4. This article reveals an underlying thread that reminds me of the fraudulent extradiction of John Demjanjuk from Cleveland, 2009, to Munich, Germany. The Office of the Bavarian Attorney General charged Demjanjuk with being “Ivan the Terrible,” and per-se-cuted him until his death in a rest home near Munich, March 2012. Ivan Marchenko, was identified to have been Ivan the Terrible, on which basis the Supreme Court of Israel dismissed charges and released Demjanjuk. The OSI and the fraudulent Wiesenthal group cooperatively hounded Demjanjuk, fraudulently, which suggests a cover-up of Markenko. One wonders if Markenko, Ivan the Terrible, was “Jewish.”
    Dr. Hubertus Strughold, who murdered prisoners in Dachau, 1942, with cold-water experiments, was promoted by NASA to Chief, Space Medicine. Yet, the Wiesenthal group could not locate him for prosecution ? Chalk up two more Holocaust frauds.

  5. – just in case you are not aware, the Dulles brothers, and “Operation Paper Clip” fill in some of the gaps. USAF colonel Fletcher Prouty provided additional clarification in “The Secret Team.” John Loftus explained who was basically in power with his “America´s NAZI Secret.” Reviewing the influence of the “Old City of London” on Adolf Hitler´s “expansion of Germany”, and who rules the Old City of London is conclusive.

  6. One of several Jewish-Nazi alliances was presented to the Third Reich by the Geman Zionist Federation in spring of 1933. The Transfer Agreement between Jews and the Third Reich offered to oversee the forced emigration of German Jews to Palestine and the transfer of their wealth to a Zionist account in a bank in Palestine. This wealth could be used by the Zionists in Palestine as credit to buy German products. Hitler signed this pact and before war broke out in Europe, 60,000 German Jews had arrived in Palestine as well as their confiscated wealth, which was used by the fledgling Zionist kibbutzes. Edwin Black published this information in 1984 to great acclaim. The Transfer Agreement: The Dramatic Story of the Pact Between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine.

    • Edwin Black’s book confirmed much of Hennecke Kardel’s 1974 book, “Adolf Hitler, Founder of Israel” and Hitler was offered the cooperation of the Zionist underground organization N.M.O (National Military Organization, Irgun Tzwa’i Le’umi) Menachem Begin happened to belong to this group. Hitler accepted the offer and the visible result was the foundation of the Theresienstadt camp in the spring of 1941. In early January 1941, Avraham Stern, leader of Lehi (Stern Gang) submitted a formal proposal to German diplomats in Beirut for a military-political alliance with wartime Germany. Zionists found common ground with the Third Reich sufficient to propose and enter into mutual agreements

  7. FYI: Germany is not a sovereign state, and has not been one since 1945.

    Just two examples to make this claim valid:
    1) In 1945, Nazi Germany did not surrender. There are no documents of capitulation (military units surrendered but not the state) nor does a peace treaty exist. Technically, Germany is still at war with the Allies just like the Koreas are still at war with each other.
    2) The German Constitution is void.
    First, there never was a Constitution but only a “Grundgesetz” (basic law) still acting as the highest law in the country. A “Grundgesetz” is defined by the Hague Convention as a means to provide – well, basic law in occupied countries.
    Second, the “Grundgesetz” was made invalid in 1990 when Article 23 was removed. This Article defined its geographical area, and not even stoneage diplomacy would allow other countries to acknowledge Germany as a sovereign state with this fault attached.

    Based on these facts, the text above is even more interesting, although different conclusions would have to be drawn.

  8. Perhaps the why now question is stress in the system, criminal families infighting and airing dirty little secrets before they are past their expiration date? Perhaps these releases are to be seen in a row, and once you start playing your blackmail material, your just-in-case life insurances it goes from sniping war to avalanche. Remember the obscure piece in Russian language Pravda considering 9/11 evidence from Putin, or this little note in an obscure Indian paper:

    “Ukrainian Parliament on April 9 voted to declassify the country’s archive of Soviet-era KGB files — from 1971 to 1991— to the public. The declassification could reveal decades’ worth of information on secret arrests, “disappearings” and the intricate operations of the Ukraine’s KGB wing, or the Committee for State Security”.

    What’s there to do, besides grabbing popcorn? Highly volatile, interesting times. Let’s lance the boils, but keep a level head with purpose. Who are the benefactors of chaos and distrust, swooping in as the old goes out and in comes a worse set of oligarchy. Lessons of Maidan, and virtually every revolution.

    • True, Orage. The “hidden hand” gets rid of their own political assets when they outlive their usefulness, and replace them with more “reliable” people. That’s what organized crime does too. But I’m being redundant.

  9. As a Dane, I am not awfully interested in Germany having a bunch of nukes….
    and then Frau Merkel’s audacity to rebuke President Putin for letting Iran have their long ordered S-300 missiles and refuse to attend the May 9th parade in Moscow… I puke !
    Good on Hans Ruehe… it is people like him we need many, many more of in Germany and in Europe… I did not say EU as in the European Union – as that is an organization that should not be, Period.

  10. I would like to draw the readers attention to a curious fact, which was first published in a lenghty and informative Spiegel article in 2012 (in their archives). The first two submarines, later delivered to Israel, were not assembled in Germany but in England. The article explains the political surroundings at that time a bit, so this rather strange and costly procedure can be better understood.

    Jim’s assumption, gives more likely background although it doesn’t reveal, why especially at this time.

    I would suggest, that Russia might have put some more pressure on Germany in the latest talks, hinting at their profound knowledge of all of this. Going into the open through a person, who periodically writes heroic war scenarios about a possible air attac of Israel against Iran as well as shilling about an ongoing
    russian project of weaponizing Ebola. Yes, you heard right, Mr. Rühle published this in the FAZ, right at the time when Gordon for the first time revealed the real biological ongoings in Georgia.

    The german inclusion in breaching international treaties should be clear, but this fact was already known since Perez made his first agreements with Globke/Adenauer. Willy Brandt, Hemut Kohl, Helmut Schmidt and others like especially Merkel are integral part of it, which is proveable with no great effort.

  11. Referencing Nicholas Fowler’s above comment:

    I’ve never heard a bad word said by Stew re Gordon or anyone else he works with. It just seems out of character. Sometimes I imagine Gordon cringing at certain statements made by Stew, but then again Stew has been through a lot, is enthusiastic on certain topics and because of that can be excused somewhat.

    Can you give me a reference to what article, comment, you read?

    • more than a few people are hoping that our realignment here will give our zio/fbi asshole friends a leg up.

      VT is way beyond this. Stew needs to stay on message and there has been nothing wrong with what he had been saying. Management issues are something else and VT is a large organization.

      I just keep doing the work. Stew is one of those who was meant to take over much from me. I work a full time job and VT is exhausting…plus most of us are getting more than a big old.

  12. And today, even with all the gifts, reparations, grants, building their Nuclear Weapons program and NOW the subs to launch them, Israel recently threatened to Nuke Germany.

    Some friends.

    The Germans MUST know that Israel launched a Nuclear Cruise Missile into the Pentagon on 9/11 and still gave them more subs (maybe Nukes) afterward. Who’s side are they on, they are a member of NATO right? an attack against one is an attack against all.

    Funny also is that most of the loans to Israel are forgiven, written off, what a deal!

  13. Orage’s question is quite reasonable. Let me add some more facts from history. The key person in the Adenauer government was Heinrich Globke, a former NAZI and one of the founders of the racist legislation in 1934. Globke was the real person, Perez so often spoke to and with whom Israel (here again Perez stand out) made deals. This whole thing is – sorry, I have to say this, because it’strue – absolutely interrelated with the Eichmann case and the later trial. The Germans had/have quite a number of rather devastating documents in regards of the zionist actions during WWII. Their own compromise was already done, so the publication of only parts of these documents would stirr up international trouble. On basis of these agreements of Globke and Perez, all the other – to this day – agreements about money lending, technical support, agricultural technique and much more was/is done between the two countries.
    It’s like two lions, knowing rather well about the potential danger inherited in the other, but only showing their teath. This might sound strange to many, but this Eichmann (Germany: shut up) versus money and military/tech deals are a long time contract. The actual parameters may have changed over the time, but (as the NATO slogan: keep Amerika in, Russia out and Germany down) it’s principles are valid even today. Many of this is well investigated and some of the people involved, from time to time talked a bit more than they should.

  14. As to the Editorial Post Script, regarding breaking NNP, it did not exist at the time. “The Non-Proliferation Treaty opened for signature in 1968, the Treaty entered into force in 1970. It was in part developed because U.S. nuclear sharing policies were originally designed to help prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons—not least by persuading the then West Germany not to develop an independent nuclear capability by assuring it that West Germany would be able, in the event of war with the Warsaw Pact, to wield (U.S.) nuclear weapons in self-defense. – wiki”

    As to Germany stealing secret metallurgy from the US, to pass on, that would be a first. In case you forgot the theft following WWII, see

    Naughty question: Why would the leading lights of science, with top level involvement in the Manhattan Project, need all this secret help and espionage? Was the Cold War and M.A.D. a German tactic to survive?

  15. You wrote about the DVD (Deutscher Verteidigungs Dienst) in Germany. This is a group of still faithful followers of the National Socialism ín Dachau/Bavaria. One of the leaders of this group is a person well known to the world and especially to all Americans: George H. W. Bush. It is said that his real family name is Scherff and he is a German. This former president and his family used to visit Dachau several times to meet the members (and more) of the DVD.
    The Bavarian Minister F.J. Strauß was the first Minister for Atomic Affairs in the BRD.

  16. I lived in Kiel for more then 10 years and know the Howaldtswerke quite well. This is a very capable firm, building civil and military ships of various flavors, including very specialized ones. The construction of submarines was and is one of their technical marvells. As one woud suggest, this production line affords a lot of surrounding techniques, coming from a vast divesity of other technically well equipped development firms and from the parts of the military, which themselves develop things of high technical and military value.

    Gordon and Jim are shurely right to question some of the long time assumptions about german policy, which – if investigated under broader assumptions and taking into account more facts from seemingly unrelated developments – may lead to some new conclusions.

    We Germans already have “very long ears”, wide open and sharpened to get any strange and formerly unheard tone from politicians and other officials. Lets simply assume that there might exist an influential and steadily working group, which manifests itself through a number of other circles, interrelated and working for the greater aim to further the position of Germany in international affairs, including the capability to use nuclear weapons in cases of crisis.

    The tones we hear are already there – not hard to notice, but I’m not shure yet, who really plays the flute and to what aim. The open contradiction between posing as anti-prussian and at the same time bringing Germany into any international crisis zone should make intelligent people think harder about the motives.

    What Gordon suggests, but not formulating it – in light of historical agreements between NAZIs and ZIOs, see Lenny Brenner – might be true and that would really be a nightmare. But I’m more reserved about it, because it doesn’t fully make at this time.

  17. The Samson Option: Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal and American Foreign Policy
    by Seymour M. Hersh (Author)
    October 27, 1991

    An investigation into Israel’s nuclear capabilities discloses information about the country’s rush toward nuclear status, its collaboration with South Africa and Iran, and its espionage activities. Reprint. NYT.
    –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

  18. This is a boil worthy to be lanced. On this trail to the Israeli bomb you’ll find attempts on the lives of Presidents. Sometimes the attempts were enough, sometimes they had to be followed through. Question is, why now and why in a second-rate Newspaper, that is THE most committed to NATO and Israel? 5+1

    Strauss was a notorious crook with nuclear ambitions, no doubt. Many angles there to be followed, Starfighter widdow-maker, South America, South Africa. Did he succeed, even after his death? That said, as big as he was in his own mind, his attempts were rather feeble.

    PS. Why do you rely on Google-translation for a piece like this where you absolutely have to get the nuances right? The author ends on a proud note helping to “secure” Israel, echoing the political caste in the US at every moment.

  19. How much of this ‘funding’ needs to be seen as holohoax extortion from the German state. I don’t think true germans would be inclined to help those who were behind their own holocaust in WW2. (Hamburg/Dresden, ethnic cleansing post-war in which 11 million died)

  20. Wow … parallels Saudi financing of the Pakistani nuke programme, and Saudis getting dibs on ‘prime factory units’ in return.

    Totally understandable … Germans under humiliating long-term occupation boot for 2nd time in a century, so survival instinct kicks in – ‘Get a nuke!’ by any means necessary, make a deal with any devil. And so they did. Perfect cover, too … ‘Ya can’t dare criticise Israel or Germans helping Jews!’ … and now German subs can cruise the oceans with Israeli nuke missiles.

    Free our Shrimpy! Tho Michael Shrimpton did seem a little reticent about Israeli connections … Was Shrimpton nabbed to shut him up about this that he might have stumbled upon?

  21. I am sure Israel is the Dog and Germany is in their hands. I have heard that 2/3rds of the lawyers at Nuremenburg were Jewish. An old German solider told me the reason for the trials was to get rid of what he called “The Prussian Spirit” which from looking up role models like Von Manstein, Rudel, Rommel ad infinitum seems to be a level of courage and competence that is unmatched at any period of human history. A German company just made a machine that turns water into gasoline. The patent for the machine was filed in Germany in 1925.

    ” Germany and Austria have laws that put you in jail if you criticize Israel. Germany is in Israel’s yoke. Its not the other way around.

  22. ” A remarkable transcript of a conversation” rang a bell with me. The late Bob Reguly told me he had seen a transcript from either German intelligence or the RCMP wherin the German leader of the day told Pierre Trudeau why Canada was going to buy German tiger tanks.Bob did not tell me the reason but he did tell me that Trudeau was a child molestor so there may be a connection. Bob was very familiar with German intelligence and the heads of allthe world’s intelligence agencies because he was at the birth of the cold war and they all wanted to talk to him because he spent 20 years in the back of movie theatres crossexamining Igor Gouzenko whomhe introduced me to.I know a guy from German intelligence but he stonewalls questions.

    • Igor Gouzenko, the Russian Cypher Clerk, who revealed that the Soviet Union had a spy network in the USA, started the cold war. I assume he must have had plastic surgery because therafter he appeared on TV only wearing a bag on his head. You can see this on old CBC interviews. The Russians tried to kill him for his whole life. The RCMP hid him. He knew immediately that British intelligence was run by the KGB the moment British intelligence officers came to Canada to interview him. As it turns out 4 were exposed. Kim Philby, and 3 others including the Queen’s cousin last name Blunt. Bob Reguly was the only reporter Gouzenko trusted and together they tried but failed to discover “The Fifth Man.”The KGB organized in units of 5 and four were caught.

    • Addenda, I often wondered if Mike Pearson, former PM of Canada, was KGB. Bob Reguly never mentioned it so I assume he wasn’t but he attended Cambridge University at about the same time that most of the British spys were recruited. Cambridge University seems to have been an early version of the National Post as far as being a recruitment center for certain kinds of individuals.

      Bob did tell me who the highest ranking KGB spy in Canada was but he is still alive and well so I cannot give you his name because I cannot prove it. Another one works at the Monk Centre at the University of Toronto. They are not all Jews.

    • @DGSE,

      I think you are correct. Got my cats mixed up. I am going on memory and these days it doesn’t work as well as it did 50 years ago. Thanks for the correction. The transcript I mention regarding the tanks was made in a vehicle. There was a time, because of Bob Reguly, that I knew every restaurant in Canada that was bugged, and by which intelligence agency.

  23. No mention of the Eichmann trial in ’61? Can’t say I’m up on this, but could it be that reports in the German (Jewish) press that Strauss blackmailed Israel over granting loans it didn’t have to make in the first place has it backwards, and possibly it was Israel that blackmailed Strauss for financing Dimona in exchange for limiting the charges to Eichmann?

    • There is a book called “The Mossad” which dicusses Eichman. What I found odd about the man is that he spoke Yiddish.

    • Dan, you’re absolutely right on this. Please see my comment above, which gives some first glance at the broader story and the people involved, which led to the kind of “mutual agreements” between the former FRG and Israel. It’s a bit like: “You don’t talk openly about our dead herings and we will make some profitable deals with you – and of course – for us.”

  24. Completely baffling that the Germans would do this –finance Israel’s nuclear weapons industry. We infer from this that Germany has long since been little more than a slave labor camp serving Israel’s war needs.
