Britain Gives A-Bomb to Israel

According to a recent BBC 2 report, it was Britain, under the government of Harold Wilson, that supplied Israel with plutonium to build an israeli atomic bomb.

In 1966 Israel asked Britain to supply 10mg of Plutonium. Although this was a small amount , and Israel would have required almost 5 kilos of plutonium to build an israeli atom bomb, British officials were warned this had "significant military value" and could enable Israel to carry out vital experimental work to speed up the the development of nuclear weapons.

Israel established its main nuclear reactor outside the desert town of Dimona in the 1950s, primarily with French help. Historians believe resources for the israeli plant were also obtained from elsewhere in Europe and from North America.

Based on revelations made by former Dimona technician Mordechai Vanunu to a British newspaper in 1986, independent experts concluded that Israel has amassed as many as 200 nuclear warheads using uranium and plutonium.

But there is no problem. Israel steals cow its good turn, Iran steals cow its sin. Or simplier Israeli bomb is good but iranian is bad.
