    Well I'm another American living here, originally from Texas. And yes Israel has threatened others(not nuclear, just unspecified destruction) To wit: Lebanon, Syria and Iran. If Israel is so bent on Iran foregoing nuclear development(which I'm in favor of) Why not Israel abandon their nuclear program? They have the 5th most powerful military force on the planet so why do they need nukes? They have no real enemies other than Syria which wants peaceand has been rejected by Israel. Hezbollah and Hamas are like fies on an elephants butt. That leaves Iran who has never in modern times started a war.Incidently, Iran NEVER said they would be the ones to wipe Israel off the map and were in fact refering to Israels treatment of the Palestinians as a reason for someone to punish them. Iran wishes to dominate the region not go to war with a country as powerful as Israel. I guess living over here we see whats really going on. Peace is the farthest thing from Israels mind right now.
