    Israel holds a deliberate policy of Strategic Nuclear Opacity and is not recognized under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons as having any. Regardless, it is probable that Israel does possess nuclear weapons with the total stockpile unknown.

    Former nuclear technician Mordechai Vanunu turned whistle blower made claims in which Israel has sufficient supplies for 150 warheads -- He was later abducted by Mossad and is currently living under semi-house arrest. As well as this, other sources have stated to the possession of nuclear arms by Israel, including a speech by former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates in which he states Israel was a nuclear power (although, may be in reference to Israeli civil energy pursuits).

    Under the Samson Option, it also makes sense for Israel to possess nuclear weapons as a last chance deterrant.

    Yes. They tried to keep it secret and denied the fact, but they have plenty. They obviously don't want anyone else to have them too.
