Most Americans Correctly Believe Israel has Nuclear Weapons - 9/26/2014

Despite a longstanding Israeli policy of "strategic ambiguity"—never confirming or denying that Israel has nuclear weapons—curiously followed by the US government, most Americans are not fooled.

Revelations by Mordecai Vanunu, complete with images inside Israel's Dimona nuclear weapons production facility, Seymor Hersch's ground-breaking book The Sampson Option, and IRmep's own acquisition of confirmation via government held documents obtained through lawsuits, a strong majority of Americans now understand that Israel has deployed nuclear weapons.

Do you believe Israel has nuclear weapons?

Yes 63.9%  
No 36.1%
