イスラエルがレバノンでウラン含有兵器を使用した疑いが浮上!

英国の高級紙「インディペンデント」によると、イスラエルの爆弾で陥没したレバノン南部のKhiamおよびAt―Tiriの土壌に高濃度の放射能が含まれていたことが明らかになった。これにより、イスラエルがレバノンにウラン含有兵器を使用した疑いが一段と高まった。

ウランの存在を示唆するものは他にもある。爆撃後の巨大な黒い雲をとらえた写真がそれだ。イギリス国防相もサンプルに高濃度ウラン同位元素(アイソトープ)が存在することを認めた。

詳細はそのうち日本語ニュースとして報道されるはずなので、それを読んでいただきたい。

☆ Chris Bellamy: An enigma that only the Israelis can fully explain(英紙「インディペンデント」)

The initial tests on samples taken from the site of the Israeli strike on Khiam present an enigma which will only be solved when the people who produced and deployed the weapon explain themselves. Speculation that the device was some form of "dirty bomb" or micro-yield nuclear weapon can probably be dismissed. The radiation levels and the amount of Uranium-235 in the sample clearly indicate that it was not a nuclear fission weapon.

Uranium has been widely used in conventional weapons - and on the battlefield - for the past 30 years, for three reasons. Firstly, uranium is very dense - 70 per cent denser than lead. Therefore, a smaller projectile delivers more kinetic energy, making it ideal for armour-piercing shot. Secondly, it is pyrophoric, which means that when slammed into a target at high speed it liquefies and ignites spontaneously. Thirdly, the type of uranium most widely used in weapons, depleted uranium (DU), is plentiful. It is a by-product of uranium enrichment, which produces the fuel for nuclear power stations and nuclear weapons. Because there is so much of it about, it makes sense for those who have it to turn DU into armour-piercing munitions.

☆Robert Fisk: Mystery of Israel's secret uranium bomb(英紙「インディペンデント」)

http://news.independent.co.uk/world/fisk/article1935945.ece

Did Israel use a secret new uranium-based weapon in southern Lebanon this summer in the 34-day assault that cost more than 1,300 Lebanese lives, most of them civilians?

We know that the Israelis used American "bunker-buster" bombs on Hizbollah's Beirut headquarters. We know that they drenched southern Lebanon with cluster bombs in the last 72 hours of the war, leaving tens of thousands of bomblets which are still killing Lebanese civilians every week. And we now know - after it first categorically denied using such munitions - that the Israeli army also used phosphorous bombs, weapons which are supposed to be restricted under the third protocol of the Geneva Conventions, which neither Israel nor the United States have signed.

☆British newspaper says Israel used uranium bomb(イスラエル紙「エルサレム・ポスト」)

The British newspaper, Independent, reported on Saturday that during this summer's war in Lebanon, Israel used uranium-tipped bunker-buster bombs.

According to the report, Dr. Chris Busby, the British Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, found two soil samples thrown up by Israeli heavy or guided bombs which showed "elevated radiation signatures." Busby says that these findings suggest Israel used radioactive weaponry.
