Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

Synthesizing Security measures in Jordan: a New Narrative Paradigm of Israel's Nuclear Reactor "Dimona" Threats

By: Dr. Ra'Ed QaQish, MP, Jordan


Security measures programs by UN, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and UNESCO need to expand nuclear imminent threats in Middle East through worldwide interventions to put pressure on Israel to dismantle its nuclear weapons for protecting the regional security and peace. Diminishing WMD integration by IAEA in isolation of Israel nuclear extensive access to information and advanced knowledge, undermined world efforts to empower and contribute to World peace and to advocates new trends in security measures.

The study, suggests that unless a rapid intervention by the IAEA to move quickly to prevent a nuclear disaster in the region by the Dimona reactor a great danger for Jordanians is bound to transpire in the near future. Israel's nuclear reactor proposes exclusion of physical world interventions and disrespects all world efforts towards security. Israel being the fifth nuclear power in the world rejects to sign the treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, or to submit its nuclear facilities to international inspection.

As for the waste products resulting from nuclear enrichment operations in Dimona reactor, independent reports by international NGOs revealed that Dimona reactor's waste products are buried in the areas east of the Al Bureij refugee camp and the town of Deir El Balah. They conclude that these waste products are buried as well as in areas near Jordan.

Studies concerning Dimona reactor have revealed that the Israelis are aware of the possibility of a meltdown in Dimona reactor. Such a meltdown would affect an area reaching Cyprus and the entire neighbouring region. They also showed that radioactive substances are leaking from the Dimona reactor, perhaps explaining why rates of cancer have increased among nearby populations, like Tafila City in South Jordan.

The study appeals to the world communities to extend help to the Arab region in general and to Jordan in particular to pressure Israel into dismantling its Dimona reactor. It stresses the fact that making the Middle East a zone free of weapons of mass destruction is the guarantee for the peace process in the region.
