JFK's Concern Over Israel's Dimona Nuclear Bomb Program
"For many years, both the Soviet Union and the United States ... have deployed strategic nuclear weapons with great care, never upsetting the precarious status quo which insured that these weapons would not be used in the absence of some vital challenge. Our own strategic missiles have never been transferred to the territory of any other nation under a cloak of secrecy and deception---Excerpt, JFK's Cuban Missile Crisis Address to the Nation, Oct.22, 1962
JFK's Letter To Israeli PM Eshkol July 5, 1963
Dear Mr. Prime Minister (Eshkol),
It gives me great personal pleasure to extend congratulations as you assume your responsibilities as Prime Minister of Israel. You have our friendship and best wishes in your new tasks. It is on one of these that I am writing you at this time.
You are aware, I am sure, of the exchange which I had with Prime Minister Ben-Gurion concerning American visits to Israel's nuclear facility at Dimona. Most recently, the Prime Minister wrote to me on May 27. His words reflected a most intense personal consideration of a problem that I know is not easy for your Government, as it is not for mine. We welcomed the former Prime Minister's strong reaffirmation that Dimona will be devoted exclusively to peaceful purposes and the reaffirmation also of Israel's willingness to permit periodic visits to Dimona.
....I am sure you will agree that these visits should be as nearly as possible in accord with international standards, thereby resolving all doubts as to the peaceful intent of the Dimona project. As I wrote Mr. Ben-Gurion, this Government's commitment to and support of Israel could be seriously jeopardized if it should be thought that we were unable to obtain reliable information on a subject as vital to the peace as the question of Israel's effort in the nuclear field...Read it all and more
--->The so-called Enlightenment, the age of criticism (intellectual scrutiny) in the 18th century, subjected everything to criticism and reason---everything, that is, except its own presuppositions and the limits to reason which St. Thomas Aquinas had examined in depth centuries before. The Illumined ones in any case cynically accused the Catholics of obscurantism, which is why they hated the Jesuits especially, not because the Jesuits were ignorant---far from it---but because the Jesuits answered criticism with criticism. The Jesuits saw that this 'Enlightenment' was simply and fundamentally the resurgence of that very familiar (neo-)paganism, seasoned this time with heavy doses of hermetic-cabalism, and led by Freemasonry. It was simply another religion under the public guise of empiricism.
By the 19th century even the Illumined ones had abandoned reason in favor of dogma (e.g., the irrational tenets Darwinisn, scientism, population control-eugenics, the occult, hatred of Catholicism against which no facts sufficed, industrialism-technology and the will-to-power). This abandonment of even what they exaggerated of true reason and genuine criticism led straightway to what Nietzsche absurdly called the death of God, and then inexorably to the slaughter of World War I, which was the death of Enlightenment man---and, but for God in Jesus Christ and the imago dei, the death of man qua man.
