The bomb in the basement : how Israel went nuclear and what that means for the world by Michael I Karpin( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 737 libraries worldwide
"After Israel won its war of independence in 1948, founding prime minister David Ben-Gurion realized that his country faced the possibility of having to fight Arab nations again in the future. He embraced the idea of developing a nuclear capability and put a young lieutenant, Shimon Peres, in charge of the project. This was the beginning of Israel's quest for nuclear capability, a project that could not have happened without the cooperation of the French. In The Bomb in the Basement, journalist Michael Karpin gives us the most complete account of how Israel became the Middle East's only nuclear power and how its status as an officially unacknowledged nuclear nation affects the politics of that volatile region. Karpin's research includes exclusive interviews that provide new insights into the key figures behind the program (notably a harsh rivalry between Peres and Isser Harel, the first head of Mossad). He explains how different U.S. administrations have dealt with Israel's nuclear status, from Eisenhower's disapproval to Johnson's open support. And he shows how the key to Israel's nuclear capability has been its policy of "nuclear ambiguity." A compelling account of a complicated history, The Bomb in the Basement raises provocative questions about how Israel's nuclear arsenal may affect not only its own future, but the future of the entire Middle East."--Publisher's website

The Middle East is now in the eye of a storm. But as this storm abates, an opportunity for peace and progress has emerged. In Imperfect Compromise , Michael Karpin, an Israeli broadcast journalist, presents a new thesis about the Middle East peace settlement. He lays out an optimistic forecast: The violent conflict between Arabs and Jews that has had the greatest negative impact on world peace since the end of the Cold War is moving steadily toward resolution. Moreover, since the first Zionists settled on the shore of the Lake of Galilee a hundred years ago, the relations between Arabs and Jew

Une bombe à retardement est le premier documentaire qui raconte l'histoire du développement nucléaire israélien. Il relate les connections nucléaires franco-israéliennes et décrit les efforts infructueux de l'administration américaine pour stopper la construction de la bombe par Israël. Le développement du projet nucléaire fut le plus complexe, le plus onéreux et le plus confidentiel de tous les projets jamais entrepris par Israël. David Ben-Gurion, le fondateur d'Israël, a commencé à suggérer le moyen ultime de dissuasion dès les premières années de la construction de l'État. La leçon de l'Holocauste et les craintes pour la survie d'Israël ont persuadé Ben-Gurion que l'État devait se munir de cette arme comme "assurance vie" pour le pays. Les sources étrangères, citées dans le document révèlent qu'Israël a déclaré une alerte nucléaire à trois reprises par le passé. Le film décrit dans quelles circonstances cet État serait forcé d'utiliser ce type d'arme.--[Michaelkarpin.com]
