    Some of the responses on this forum show ignorance, others paranoia. Israel is going to build nuclear power plants. This will require the cooperation of the IAEA. Strong cooperation between the IAEA and Israel has been the norm since the construction of the Soreq reactor - supplied by the USA via Eisenhower's 'Atoms for Peace' program. (see: http://www.soreq.gov.il/default_EN.asp) Look it up. The relationship between the IAEA and Israel is NOT adversarial, nor has it ever been. I realize these revelations, that Israel is a FOUNDING member of the IAEA. that the IAEA is NOT an ENEMY of Israel, and that there are 53 years of cooperation between Israel and the IAEA will shock and offend many. This is the truth. Israel, indeed almost every nation in the world, has a need for nuclear power to supply base-line power in the rapidly approaching era of transition. Virtually ALL nations in the region are going to develop nuclear power in the next decade. Get used to it. Also get used to the fact that Israel and the IAEA will be cooperating openly and closely in developing nuclear power generation in Israel.
