Sansone e la Guerra fredda

La capacità nucleare israeliana fra le due superpotenze (1953-1963)
  • Matteo Gerlini,

The possibility of the use of nuclear weapons by Israel has been defined as the "Samson option", since such an eventuality would have led to the death of all the modern Philistines, that is the enemies of the State. Instead, if we interpret the circumstances and the events that marked Israel's achievement of the nuclear option through the history of international relations, then it can be seen as an element of the post-war construction of the Middle East, that is a passage in that Middle-Eastern Cold War that had such an influence on the confrontation between the superpowers. Through the use of previously unpublished archive sources and an attentive bibliographic review, the author traces through the 1953-1963 decade the construction of a Middle-Eastern American order that was created at the expense of Arab nationalism and the Soviet influence, partly as a result of the intervention of Washington in the Israeli nuclear option.
