Alwaght- Israeli regime’s first step to become a nuclear power dates back to late 1948, the same year the regime was established. In 1949, Haiem Wisemen, the regime’s PM, received a suggestion from university professors and students asking for sending a group of Israeli university students to the European and the American technological and scientific centers to learn about nuclear energy. In the same year the Israeli regime sent 6 nuclear technicians to the European countries. In the beginning, the Israeli regime’s attempts to join the club of nuclear countries were conducted secretly. However, after 1967 Arab-Israeli war, the Tel Aviv’s struggles to attain nuclear weapon were publicized. With the return of David Ben Gurion to power in 1955-1958, and establishing close and friendly ties with France, the grounds for starting a national nuclear project were provided. France’s technological support facilitated the Israeli regime's attempts to build nuclear plants, as it provided the regime with material necessary for running the plants. Finally, the regime’s nuclear bomb was built and since then the Israeli regime was formally recognized as a nuclear power.
