JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israel is equipping submarines built in Germany with nuclear-tipped cruise missiles, according to an in-depth report in Der Spiegel magazine.
The magazine also reported Sunday that the German government has known about Israel's nuclear weapons program for decades, despite its official denials.
Last month, Israel received its fourth Dolphinclass submarine from Germany, which is slated to become operational in 2013.

Now that’s trust.
Yes, I don’t think this is news.
I'm not saying I don't approve of the Israelis trying anyway.
...according to an in-depth report in Der Spiegel...
Not much is known about Israeli nuclear weapons. The Israelis wanted to buy Tomahawks from the USA in 2000 but Clinton refused. I think they are now using a variant of the Popeye Turbo missile. Range of 1,500 km. More than enough to hit anywhere in Iran.
Israel created a strong military to protect itself from its crazy neighbors.
We all know where Klinton’s heart is.
God’s is with israel!
>> “Of course, in Zechariah 14, *all* nations come against Jerusalem, which is a very, very bad idea.” <<
But the war of Psalm 83 comes before the war of Zechariah 14, so there will not likely be any Arab or Persian armies left to take part in the events Of Zechariah 14.
The rational approach is not MAD. It’s preempt and eradicate. And keep a second and third strike in case any Europeans should get ideas.
400 plus warheads in 2000, with some tech that no one else has (reportedly). Likely to be 600 to 800 today. Popeye & Jericho can place the things wherever they need to go.
What would they do with 72 virgins, anyway? If they stay virgins forever, it would get real boring having sex with someone who each time forgets everything and cries for the pain of it, and you can’t dump her, because all 72 of them are the same. If they don’t stay virgins forever, do they eventually also get fat and grow facial hairs? Do their mothers come visit, and yell at you for not taking out the trash? What if all 72 ex-virgins are not in the mood, need cheering up and to feel appreciated, or are on the rag, all at the same time? And this is 72 we’re talking about. You call it Satanic, I just call it real stupid. That’s not paradise. It would very quickly become hell. The poor devils would in desperation turn to the “boys like pearls” eventually, and who knows what that would be like? Anyway, why do they believe that all paradise is is one big f@#$-fest? Can’t they also drink beer or something, and thereby reverse the old polka song?
>> “Iran, Libya, Turkey, etc. will all survive long enough for Ezekiel 38.” <<
You must mean Ezekiel 39; the Ezekiel 38 attack comes at the end of the millenium, when Israel is living in peace and safety without walls or other defenses.
Note the differences in the condition of Israel between the two chapters. They are definitely not talking about the same war.
Turkey and the African nations may survive for Ezekiel 39, but I seriously doubt that Iran will.
Well, according to one European researcher, it’s not Virgins at all. Working on the assumption that the koran was really not in Arabic but Aramaic, it would seem to be *72 raisins*.
Which is hardly more than a snack.
Gawldang! Sex with 72 raisins? First there’s bestiality, and now there’s dried-fruit-iality? Do they, like, eat the raisins later? Ewww.
Alcohol and excessive food? Houris who keep growing back their cherries and forgetting how to move? Is this some suburban bar mitzva they’re sacrificing themselves for?
The funny thing is that there are a lot of people who won’t buy a German made car and Israel is buying German submarines.
Israel’s playing for real - good for them.
Works for me.
OK, they should then adopt FAD.
First Assured Destruction.
Works for me.
Good for the Israelis!
Especially if the boat is diesel powered. Much harder to hunt, prosecute and fine than a nuclear boat.
Park it within striking distance of Mecca and Medina.
“Park it within striking distance of Mecca and Medina.” Jerusalem to Mecca is only 1200 Kilometers. Israel could hit Mecca, Medina and Riyadh from their home port. I sleep good at night knowing that.
Yes, this has been known for many years already. It is part of Israel’s multi- dimensional package of defense weapons and delivery systems, and is there because of the obvious reasons. If even a small portion of all this is ever really needed, it will result in Alluh very quickly running out of reward-virgins. Perhaps, though, he issues rain-checks?
To add to your rant: Are these 72 virgins muslim women who died as virgins? If so, islam says that your reward for saving your virginity until death is to be raped in heaven by stinking, sweaty terrorists for eternity. If I were a muslim woman, I’d be giving it up by the time I was 10.
The only good raisin is a dead raisin. Or in a raisin/oatmeal cookie.
Israel has no enemies outside of Muslim countries and the White House. About 1/4 of Israel's population are former citizens of USSR. There are close contacts between Israel and Russia, and in general I'd say there is an agreement. For example, Russia scrapped the sale of S-300 missiles to Iran. Both countries are ran by pragmatists, and while Putin may have a different opinion on things he understands who in the world thinks in the same way. The USA, however, is ran by socialists with an agenda to change the world.
USSR supported arabs and was anti-Israel. That was due to the divided world. The West had Israel, so that chip was already taken. USSR had to take whatever was left, even if it was not very good (and it wasn't.) Also note that USSR did not have problems with Muslims - nobody outside of Israel had them at that time. But things changed; in Russia, for example, there is no love lost for fundamentalist Muslims after Afghanistan and Chechen wars.
On the other end of the spectrum the USA is now aligning with Israel's enemies. Obama made sure, for example, that a relatively stable and well contained regime of Gaddhafi - who had no beef with anyone in decades - was replaced with AQ and MB who now have all the war materiel of Libya. Wonder what they need that for? Now consider demolition of Israel-friendly Egypt and a continuing attempt to replace Assad in Syria. Assad is not a dove, but he understands that his own hide is at stake and he does not make waves. Israel bombed his nuclear site, or whatever it was, and Assad was silent. He did nothing at all; he knew that he gambled and lost, and he accepted that. He is someone Israel can deal with. AQ, once they win in Syria, will have no qualms, and you cannot threaten AQ personally.
Much truth to what you say, I think. But keeping up with it....
Maybe they were total sluts while they were alive, and this is their punishment? Not only having to put out for all eternity for stinky, sweaty terrorists, but it hurts each time like the first.
This subject is inexhaustible. It needs a thread of its own, with contests, pictures, poems and short stories:-E)
