Lebanese (Lubnani), Yes Israel has had nuclear weapons for decades. However: 1. Israeli has never threatened its neighbors with nuclear weapons. 2. Israel has never called for the destruction of its neighbors as Ahmadinejad has said that Israel should be wiped off the map. 3. Israel has never had an absolute raving mad lunatic like Ahmadinejad at the head of its government. Talk to any Iranian and ask what their opinion is of Ahmadinejad. 4. Israel's weapons also act as a deterent for neighboring countries (missile range) to launch offensives. If Israel ever lost a war it would be the end of Israel and they can not and will not allow that to happen. On the other hand Israel will not be the first to use nuclear weapons. Finally should Iran ever attack Israel with a nuclear weapon, it would not be Israel that would be wiped off the map but Iran would be totally obliterated.
