Technically, Israel doesn’t have nuclear weapons. But no one actually believes that. JTA reports on a story in Der Spiegel:

Israel is equipping submarines built in Germany with nuclear-tipped cruise missiles, according to Der Spiegel magazine.

The magazine also reported Sunday that the German government has known about Israel’s nuclear weapons program for decades, despite its official denials.

Last month, Israel received its fourth Dolphin–class submarine from Germany, which is slated to become operational in 2013. Germany largely has funded Israel’s purchase of the submarines.

According to Spiegel, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told the magazine that Germans should be “proud” that they have secured Israel’s existence “for many years.”
