Terrorism & Security | csmonitor.com IAEA deals with Israeli nuclear weapon threat to the region

Terrorism & Security | csmonitor.com: "ElBaradei has said that he will not push Israel to declare that it does in fact have nuclear weapons. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Monday that Israel will not do so. The Guardian reports, however, that ElBaradei's visit comes at a time when Israel is 'increasingly sensitive to pressure for it to be subject to the same standards of international accountability demanded of other countries in the Middle East.' Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Monday that Israel will not do so. Perhaps in anticipation of ElBaradei's visit, Israel's atomic energy program launched a website Monday that provides some details about its activities, but nothing about nuclear weapons. "
