Israeli nuclear reactor

Israel, 2000
The existence of Israel's nuclear program is officially denied by the Israeli government for fear of mandatory U.S. trade and diplomatic sanctions that would be imposed if proof of the program were to become public. Israel has not signed the nuclear nonproliferation treaty, and the U.S. officially turns a blind eye to Israel's weapons-of-mass-destruction (WMD) program. The release of this IKONOS image of the Israeli nuclear reactor at Dimona caused some embarrassment for both Israel and the U.S. The reactor is in the lower left of this image.
