A Slip of the Tongue: Israeli Nukes?

In a press conference Ehud Olmert, Israel's Prime Minister, identified Israel as having nuclear weapons. This slip contrasted with their policy of neither denying nor affirming having nuclear weapons.
The New York Times and other news sites are carrying news of the apparent 'slip' in which he says:
"Iran openly, explicitly and publicly threatens to wipe Israel off the map. Can you say that this is the same level, when they are aspiring to have nuclear weapons as America, France, Israel, Russia?"
This may be a move in the direction of an explicit affirmation of Israel's possession of a nuclear arsenal in the face of escalating tensions in the region over Iran's nuclear program and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad 's recent statement about wiping out Israel.
