Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Libya is funding Iraq’s nuclear weapons efforts, Sen. Robert Torricelli (D-N.J.) told the New Jersey Jewish News. Torricelli met with Sharon on a three-day fact-finding tour of Israel. He said Sharon vowed that, unlike during the 1991 Gulf War Israel would retaliate if Iraq strikes the Jewish state in response to a U.S.-led campaign to unseat Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
