spread reports to the contrary,
Israel's Ambassador to
France Ovadia Sofer this
week declared emphatically
that "Israel does not have —
and does not intend to have —
chemical weapons."
More ambiguous, though,
was his response to a question
about Israel's nuclear poten-
tial, which the Arab states
have used to justify their
preoccupation with chemical
weapons. "Israel," he said,

Today, a galaxy of
Arab states around 1

ground-to-ground
missiles.

repeating the standard
response, "will not be the first
to introduce nuclear weapons
into the region."
In Jerusalem, meanwhile,
Deputy Foreign Minister
Binyamin Netanyahu told the
Knesset late last week that
Israel, too, has "incontrover-
tible evidence" that Libya
and some other close
neighbors have the ability to
produce chemical weapons.
Israel, he said, would take
steps to discourage both the
production and proliferation
of such weapons. ❑

in the rear and seriously
hamper the mobilization of
Israel's civilian reserves, who
constitute at least two-thirds
of its fighting force.
Whether used for ag-
gressive or defensive pur-
poses, however, chemical
weapons now are regarded as
an integral part of the Syrian
strategic concept against
Israel and are ostensibly
deployed to counter Israel's
nuclear capability.
According to Levran, a
chemical weapons strike
against civilian targets would
pose "a harsh test" to Israel's
staying power and its capaci-
ty for absorbing such a shock.
Israel's military doctrine is
based on its ability to carry
the fight into enemy territory
and to score a quick, decisive
victory.
This is not simply a
desirable aim but an opera-
tional necessity, given Israel's
extreme sensitivity to loss of
life, its limited capacity to ab-
sorb an attack inside its own
territory and the socio-
economic dislocation that
would result from a pro-
tracted war with a massive
civilian component in its
fighting machine.
A war involving chemical
weapons would present enor-
mous problems to Israel,
severely diminishing its abili-
ty to contain the human
losses and bring hostilities to
a swift conclusion. "It would;'
said Levran, "render such a
war more difficult and more
costly."

Poison gas was first used
by Germany in the 1915 bat-
tle of Ypres during World
War I.
Over the next three years,
an estimated 125,000 tons of
chlorine and mustard gas
were unleashed, -killing
94,000 people and injuring
1.2 million more.
These gasses, however,
were primitive when com-
pared with the sophisticated
nerve and chemical sub-
stances that have since been
developed.
The use of poison gas dur-
ing World War I wiped out
the long-standing military
code that had existed in
Europe and transferred corn-
mand from the battlefield to
laboratories, from where
scientists were able to inflict
death at long range.
According to Western intel-
ligence estimates, some 22

nations now have the poten-
tial for deploying poison gas.
In some ways, chemical
weapons offer greater
dangers than nuclear
weapons. Like nuclear
weapons, they can inflict
large-scale casualties, but
unlike nuclear weapons,
they can be produced by
states with relatively low-
grade technological ability
and they are, therefore, liable
to mass proliferation.
According to one source
this week, military missions
were lining up in Baghdad to
learn the secrets of chemical
weapons after the Gulf War.
"Poor countries," he said,
"regard chemical weapons as
an equalizer, a kind of giant-
killer which can act as a
deterrent to a powerful
neighbor."
