Israel offered to sell the apartheid regime in South Africa nuclear weapons?

'The Guardian' reports that secret South African documents were uncovered by an American academic, Sasha Polakow-Suransky, while researching for his book on the close relationship between the Zionist state and the apartheid South Africa, reveal that Israel offered the regime in Pretoria nuclear warheads. Apparently, South Africa asked for the weapons and the then Israeli Defence Minister, Shimon Peres, offered them in "three sizes", while also signing a broad ranging military agreement with the then South African Defence Minister, PW Botha, which stipulated that the agreement was to remain a secret.

In the meantime, Ayllet Frish, a spokeswoman, for Peres, Ayelet Frisch, has contended that the report in the 'Guardian' is not true, saying: "We regret that the newspaper did not seek a comment from the president's office. If it had done so, it would have discovered that the story is wrong and baseless,"One wonders who to believe, doesn't one? Might it be that this American academic is just one more anti-Semite, might it be that the documents, which the 'Guardian' has a copy of, are a forgery and might it be that just for once Shimon Peres is actually telling the truth?
