Libya Bankrolling Iraqi Nukes

(JTA/New Jersey Jewish News) - "There is nuclear cooperation between Iraq and Libya. Iraq has the know-how and Libya - they have the money," Prime Minister Ariel Sharon told visiting U.S. Senator Robert Torricelli (D-NJ). Foreign Minister Shimon Peres told Torricelli, "There is no sense talking to Yasser Arafat as long as he doesn't control the situation." Asked about the right of Jews to settle in the territories, the senator replied, "Israel is being held to a standard which is otherwise not justifiable in history. There is no nation that has ever had territory used against it for an attack, captured at the cost of their own lives, and then forced to return it."
