    Here is an item I came across that I thought my fellow posters would be interested in:

    Nixon Papers Show White House Concerns About Israeli Nukes
    Fox News
    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,313651,00 .html

    President Nixon's top national security adviser worried that Israel might produce nuclear warheads "clandestinely" and that Israel's ambassador to the United States at the time, Yitzhak Rabin - later Israel's prime minister - might "stonewall" the White House in its efforts to ascertain the Israel's true intentions, according to newly declassified documents. The papers also show the Nixon administration possessed "circumstantial evidence" that Israel built its nuclear arsenal with "some fissionable material ... illegally obtained from the United States" at an unspecified time prior to 1965.
