      Recently, charges by Norwegian physician Mads Gilbert, a long time active Palestinian propagandist, that Israel used DU in Gaza have resurfaced with the claim of
      a 33 page report by the French anti-nuclear group ACDN, including the completely
      unsupportable claim that Israel had used no less than 75 tons of DU in Gaza. http://acdn.france.free.fr/spip/breve.php3?id_breve=887&lang=en

      The UN Environment Programme Postconflict Branch investigated similar claims of
      Israeli DU use in Lebanon in 2006. Their report is at
      http://postconflict.unep.ch/publications/UNEP_Lebanon.pdf

      Pages 6,7 in Foreword discuss that 32 sites were examined and that no DU was
      found

      Pages 10, 36-38 (Sampling & Measurement equipment and techniques) and 145-153
      (Weapons team findings) and 164 are germane to whether or not DU or any other "uranium weapon" as Chris Busby and his adherents like to call them, had been
      used. Bunker busters are specifically discussed and the negative results of smears of
      the walls of destroyed underground facilities are specifically mentioned. No Uranium was found.
