I arrived in South Africa at the age of 3 and left 10 years later. My dad was the business manger at Helderberg College. A PhD named Brozio was recruited from Germany to teach but later went to work for the SA nuclear program. SA was energy embargoed and so built a nuclear power plant who's cooling towers are next to the road into Cape Town. The irony is that Dr. Brozio used to come over to our house and we would play "Risk" - a board game of geopolitical maneuver and conquest...

Binkov was found turned inside out in the laundry hamper. It was deemed a suicide.

Your info is mostly very accurate, for any of the unclassified info widely available. However the Dimona complex was upgraded by the early 2000s so it's not the 1950s relic, and it runs around 200mw now days. The artillery shells were long since retired, as the delivery system was in the 90s.

There’s a line from Yes, Minister. “It doesn’t have to be official. Just so long as everyone knows it.”

Plausible deniability, because getting nukes violates various treaties. Plausible undeniability, because if your enemies think you're bluffing then it isn't really going to be effective. Got to get that balance right XD

Israeli military: "We installed this nuclear security system. Should we put the sticker on the window now to ward off burglars?"
Israeli intelligence: "Yeah, but take a sharpie and add a question mark on it."

The phrase I like to use is: "It is generally understood that Israel has nuclear weapons"

Not knowing something is far more frightening then knowing something. It doesn't allow you to prepare.

Basically every one jokes about the "textile" factory in dimona

They most likely tested their nuke during the vela incident. Seeing as how South Africa when they announced they had nukes and dismantled them they also said that was not them

Kinda like one of my Navy bases in Northern California in the early 90's. We were nuclear potential, not nuclear capable. Just need to know what the difference means. Nuclear capable means rapid deployment. Nuclear potential means not built, the warheads are here and the tailfins are over there. If only the anti military types in the Bay Area knew what was on Alameda at the time, they would have freaked out.
