Israel has acknowledged that its air defences failed to intercept a missile fired from Syria overnight that traversed 125 miles of its highly protected airspace and landed near its secretive Dimona nuclear reactor.

FTA: "The surface-to-air missile was believed to have been fired by Syrian air defences against Israeli jets that were bombing a site near Damascus, but the path it flew initially led to speculation that Israel's most sensitive site may have instead been a target."

I've thought of various scenarios that could precipitate WWIII, but not this.

I learned from an Iranian friend in college that much of the problems in the Middle East involve Sunni vs Shia and the Saudis, Kuwaitis, etc. trading with the West.

I figured Israel was safe from a nuclear attack by virtue of the Palestinians living in close quarters with the Israelis.

He also told me Iran in general has a deep-seated hatred for the UK and US for supporting Israel. He was an intelligent man, but he couldn't hide his hatred of Israel. I just listened to him and didn't judge because I realized I had no better instructor in Middle East affairs than someone who grew up in it until age 14 when his father, who is a physician in Tehran, sent him to the US to live with his uncle to avoid fighting in the Iran-Iraq war.

He referred to Iran's covert tactics against Israel and the West as grabbing the elephant by the balls...concerning bombing airliners, printing counterfeit $100 US banknotes to fund various anti-West militant groups, such as Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, etc.

I doubt a AA missle would do enough damage to cause a serious radioactive leak.

+1 reason that nuclear is dumb. Plus they take 100 years just to turn them off. Selfish energy.

The worst part of this is knowing that if humanity couldn't safely set foot in the holy lands for the next ten years it would be for the best.
