"The Samson Option" is a detailed investigation into how Israel acquired nuclear weapons technology and ultimately, nuclear weapons. The Israeli partnership with the French and later on South Africa on development of those weapons are examined along with some of the scientists by: Shalom focuses on the reciprocal relations between Jerusalem and Washington with regard to Israel's nuclear program.

Building on Shalom's and others' research into this topic, Israel's Nuclear Option is the product of an archival search in Israel and elsewhere and is based on original documents, most of which have never been hitherto publicly : Efraim Inbar. The American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh wrote in his book The Samson Option: "French workers at Dimona were forbidden to write directly to Author: Julian Borger.

The Samson Option is ultimately a narrative of how the bomb influenced the diplomatic relations between Israel and America far more than was seen or understood by the press and the public. It shows that, in every Israels Nuclear Option book, Israel was born a nuclear power. In the early s, Israel secretly launched a project designed to achieve a nuclear option.

Initially supported by France, this daring project stood to engineer a dramatic change in Israels strategic position vis-a-vis its neighboring Arab states and the wider international community. A nuclear program was Israels Nuclear Option book by the firm conviction of David Ben-Gurion that Israels existence could be.

In his book The Samson Option: Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal and American Foreign Policy, in a chapter entitled “Nuclear Blackmail,” Hersh added further details and extra drama to this mythology.

Official: Israel will attack Iran to prevent it acquiring nuclear weapons. The Sampson Option, published inis an impressive book, based largely on official US records and US and Israeli.

InSeymour Hersh published The Samson Option, describing the history of the Israeli nuclear-weapons program up to that time.

Hersh reports that former Israeli government officials told him that Vela recorded an Israeli test of a low-yield nuclear artillery shell and that the test was the third in a series carried out over the Indian. This fascinating work of investigative history sifts hard fact from the decade's rumors and half-confirmed reports about Israel's nuclear weapons program.

The result is a convincing description of nuclear capacity sought from the very beginning of the new state and achieved while Americans pretended ignorance or provided indirect assistance. Hersh argues that it is virtually certain that.

Already inin a high powered meeting in which only the top decision makers participated, Israel decided to indeed continue the nuclear option build up, but to desist from crossing the nuclear threshold (for a discussion of Israel’s nuclear posture see inter–alia, Yair Evron, Israel’s Nuclear Dilemma, London, Routledge Revivals.

In thinking about deterrence-based national security, Israel must regard the country's nuclear and conventional threats as seamless and interwoven.

This is because a recognizably capable and coherent conventional deterrent could prevent any too-sudden escalations to nuclear dimensions of conflict, and because a similarly capable and coherent nuclear deterrent could best ensure that.

An Israeli official is quoted in Seymour Hersh’s book “The Samson Option” as declaring, “We can still remember the smell of Auschwitz and Treblinka. Next time we’ll take all of you with us.“ General Moshe Dayan, a leading promoter of Israel’s nuclear program, stated, “Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.”.
