'Apocalyptic scenario' if Egypt, Saudi go nuclear: Israel minister

JERUSALEM (AFP) Egyptian and Saudi nuclear ambitions, on top of Iran's atomic drive, will lead to an "apocalyptic scenario", a senior Israeli cabinet minister said in comments published on Friday.

"If Egypt and Saudi Arabia begin nuclear programmes, this can bring an apocalyptic scenario upon us," Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman told the English-language Jerusalem Post newspaper.

"Their intentions should be taken seriously and the declarations being made now are to prepare the world for when they decide to actually do it," said the minister, responsible for coordinating Israeli efforts against a nuclear Iran.

On October 29, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak announced a programme to build several nuclear power stations -- the country having abandoned an atomic energy programme in 1986 after the Chernobyl disaster.

Jordan, one of only two Arab countries with Egypt to have signed peace deals with Israel, as well as Algeria, Libya, Yemen and all six pro-Western Gulf states including Saudi Arabia have also announced peaceful nuclear ambitions.

1. Avignor Lieberman: Apocalypse if Saudis "begin (a) nuclear program" Look no further than Pakistan.
Edited on Fri Nov-09-07 07:57 AM by leveymg
Avigor is even crazier than Joe. What an incredibly warped thing to suggest that a Saudi nuclear program would be "apocalyptic". The Saudis have had the bomb for two decades.

Some lunatics sure like the sound of those Greek words, "Nuclear Apocalypse".

Nucleus - Greek for "nut."

Apocalypse - Greek for "to uncover, to disclose, or to reveal."

Uncovering the nuts.

"Saudia Arabia working on secret nuclear program with Pakistan help"

BERLIN (AFX) - Saudi Arabia is working secretly on a nuclear program, with help from Pakistani experts, the German magazine Cicero reported in its latest edition, citing Western security sources.

The Saudi's have been working on the bomb for years.

4. What will happen if Israel starts building nuclear weapons?
What if they mount nuclear warheads on missiles, put those missiles in submarines and then sit off the coast of Iran?

And what if they never admit to having nuclear weapons and they don't participate in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty?

U.S. law and policy continue to prohibit the supply of significant nuclear items to non-nuclear weapon states, as defined in the NPT, that do not accept IAEA safeguards on all their nuclear activities.

I guess it would be Armageddon then, huh?
