had produced enough
plutonium to manufacture
200 nuclear bombs.
The shooting down by
Israeli jet fighters of a Libyan
passenger airliner which had
strayed off course and ap-
peared to be heading towards
Dimona did much to raise the
level of speculation in the
mid-'70s.
So, too, did reports, still un-
proved, that Israel had il-
legally acquired heavy water
and that it had seized a con-
signment of uranium, the
cargo of a ship it allegedly
purchased while on the high
seas.
Another report, also in the
mid-'70s, concerned the disap-
pearance of 100 kilograms of
enriched uranium frOm a
United States company in
Apollo, Pa., which was owned
by Dr. Zalman Shapiro,
described in one media report
as being "a warm Jew and an
ardent Zionist."
While Israeli spokesmen
repeat the formula response
that Israel will not be the first
to introduce nuclear weapons
into the region, public figures
have periodically delivered
themselves of statements that
tended to lend credibility to
the speculation, at least in its
broadest outline.
One clear hint came from
Prof. Ephraim Katzir, a
distinguished Israeli scien-
tist, when he was president of
Israel in 1974. Meeting with
a group of visiting United
States and European science
correspondents at his official
residence in Jerusalem, Kat-
zir told them bluntly: "Israel
has nuclear potential."
Pressed to specify when
that potential might be
realized, he replied: "Do you
expect that here, in these cir-
cumstances, I will specify a
date?" And asked whether
such a development should
give rise to concern in Israel,
Katzir reponded: ,"Why
should this matter worry us?
Let the world worry. We have
to worry first and foremost
about our own survival."
Yet another hint was drop-
ped in February 1976 by the
late Moshe Dayan, former
chief of staff and defense
minister, during an interview
with the First Network of
French television.
"We have to think about the
future," he said. "And for
Israel the future must include
the nuclear option and the
possibility of retaining
nuclear weapons without any
outside supervision.
Prof. Yuval Ne'eman, a
nuclear physicist and former
minister of science and
Technology, acknowledged in
December 1984 that Israel
possessed the "nuclear in-
