LONDON Former President Jimmy Carter caused a stir over the weekend when he claimed that Israel possesses a nuclear arsenal of 150 weapons.
While experts have long maintained Israel has a nuclear arsenal, the Jewish state has refused to confirm or deny it.
Most estimates, many based on evidence leaked in 1986 by Israeli nuclear technician Mordechai Vanunu, put the number of Israeli nuclear weapons at between 100 and 200. But other experts have said the number is as low as 60 or as high as 400.

HAve at it.
How may nuclear weapons hath Carter?
That’s 150 more than they would have if Jimmah had never been President.
Nothing between the ears.
“Most estimates” put the number between 100 and 200, and Carter comes out with 150. This means nothing other than that he, or an advisor, can take a simple, mean average.
We were in Israel when Mordechai was arrested at the Notre Dame Church/Hotel while having lunch.
I really wonder why he wasn’t still in jail..but he may be now. Anyone know?
Just a handful would take care of the problem in Tehran.
As an ex president, Carter’s statements on this carry weight. It can be assumed he has (or has had) access to sensitive intelligence, which he has chosen to compromise
Why? Who benefits from this compromise?
My favorite Israeli attack... A direct hit by a rocket while the target is driving along.
>Jimmy Carter says Israel has 150 Nuclear Weapons.<
I certainly hope so!
Obama has his Secretary of State!
Someone B!tch-slap Carter for me please? Then send him to Tel Aviv so they can arrest the bastard. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!
how's that? That sounds like you are saying if Jimmy hadn't been president, Israel would have 0 nukes?
I’d contribute to the agents defense if they took action.
How the hell would ‘goober, worm-digger, skid-mark’ Carter know what the hell Israel has? Anyone out there think anyone whould tell this dis-functional, self-annointed, do-nothing anything? I hopw Israel has 10,000 nukes and drops them all on their enemies!
A year or more ago, Bibi Netanyahu said he thought Isreal should aknowledge that it is a nuclear power publicly, which means the nukes are there and they want the world to know, without the entanglements an official statement would generate. I’ve quit trying to understand what Carter’s motives are other than he’s just hopelessly confused. In any event, Israel’s having nukes is news to no one.
That’s about 140 more than they need to wipe out their enemies.
and the problem with that is what?
