An Israel company is progressing with efforts to dig in the northern Negev for large amounts of uranium, a key ingredient for a nuclear weapon.

Gulliver Energy announced Wednesday it has began exploration in an existing borehole near Arad, located east of Be’er Sheva and overlooking the Dead Sea several miles further east, the Globes business newspaper reported.

Gulliver expects to complete the $130,000 project by March 24 and will announce the results and recommendation concerning further exploration by April 1.

    Israel already has nukes. Maybe they should build a nuclear power plant but is this really a good idea right now? Won't this just encourage the Iranians to point at Israel to take the focus off of themselves.

    Iran doesn't need any excuses to do what they do and neither does Israel. Good thing you're not n charge, unless your real name is Chuck Hagel.
