Abstract

The article investigates the considerations behind de Gaulle's decision to cancel French nuclear assistance to Israel. It argues that the decision was purely pragmatic and expressed French ambitions for U.S. assistance with France's nuclear program and its fears that if discovered, nuclear aid to Israel would jeopardize such aims. It offers evidence that shows a clear but inverse relationship between the two nuclear projects.
