This recording is dedicated in the loving memory of Jihad,
Muna and Kifah El-Ali. They were killed by mercenaries under
orders from Ariel Sharon in the Shatila refugee camp in Lebanon
in 1982 along with 2,000 others, mostly women and children.
The story contains the first official confirmation from both American and Israeli officials that Israel can launch nuclear weapons from its submarines. The ultimate guarantee of mutually assured destruction (MAD). The acronym MAD also makes for a most appropriate word to describe the human condition.
