Dr. Edward Teller, the “Father of the Hydrogen Bomb”, has arrived in Israel on his 12th visit to this country, to advise Prof. Yuval Ne’eman, Minister for Science and Development, on plans for construction of a nuclear power reactor.

Teller said he thought Israel has the proper know-how for construction of an atomic power plant but requires some equipment and materials from abroad.

Taken on a four of the West Bank by his host, who plans to bring as much science-based industries to the occupied areas to support as large a Jewish population as possible, Teller said he fully supported the idea of massive Jewish settlement in Judaea and Samaria, with scores of Jewish settlements dotted about the Arab areas.
