Very well stated Gilles. I can only fully agree with your statement. Israel has never used it's "nuclear" arsenal as a way to "bully" anyone in the middle east. And any perception of "bullying" is only due to when it's very existence is threatned. When has the Israeli military every had demonstrations in the street showing off their military hardware with signs posted "Death to Iran" or any other nation? NEVER! I don't totally agree with everything Sharon does or with Israeli foreign policy. But it's ridiculous to vilify Israel.
