Israel has a nuclear option, but it will not be the first country to introduce such weapons in the Middle East because of its moral views, Knesset Speaker Menachem Savidor told a delegation of North American women leaders, participants in a seminar for women. Savidor said the “Peace for Galilee” operation was launched June 6 because Israel believed it was facing the danger of an immediate military initiative by Syria. The operation prevented Syria’s plans to attack Israel, he noted.
