    So, now you guys are inventing Elaborate reasons other than the Fact that Iran has said they would like to Destroy Israel, and are building Nuclear Weapons. What more reason would they need. lol

    Cute little opinion piece, but it ignores the primary concern that Israel has regarding a hostile nation having nukes, which is Israel's vulnerability to a first strike.

    Simple Geography places a majority of Israel's jewish population near a few major population centers, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem's outskirts, a few others. To decimate (in the classical sense) israel's population would require relatively few weapons. Israels 200 plus warheads at that point would only be worth the retailiatory strike that, while damaging, could probably be absorbed by its enemies with far less damage done to thier own infrastructure. Countries like Iran are larger, and more spread out. There is also the chance a first strike would eliminate the Israeli command and control rendering any response impossible.

    This view is basically ignored in the referenced opinion piece.

    Sure people at mad at Israel for not making peace... Kind of difficult to make peace with people who refuse to be peaceful with you.

    If Israeli's enemies put down their weapons, there would be no war.
    If Israel put down their weapons, there would be no Israel.

    Does it mean no international community/UN palistanian-hugging rituals, for there'll be no palistanians to hug?
