All 28 member states of the European Union, with the possible exception only of Sweden, plus another 20 non-EU states in Europe and North Africa are all now within range of Israel’s secret nuclear-armed submarine fleet in the Mediterranean, and its cruise missiles.
The fleet consists of five, Dolphin Class, German-built submarines that were supplied by Angela Merkel in a unilateral decision that, at a stroke, rendered virtually the whole of Europe vulnerable to attack from a non-NATO state situated in the eastern Mediterranean which is not bound to either the NPT or the IAEA.
That fateful decision dramatically altered the balance of power, the potential consequences of which have yet to be appreciated not least by Britain’s current Defence Chiefs of Staff.
It is a political and military error of immense proportions that a non-member of NATO has been allowed a ‘second strike’ nuclear capability over the entire European Union with a population of 500,000,000, as a result of the grave misjudgement of the current German Chancellor.
