    Colin Robinson has an incredibly distorted view of history. The West Bank is historically Jewish and in recent times belonged to Jordan and before that to Turkey. It did not ever belong to the Arabs who live there now. On what basis to they make claim to the West Bank? Israel's neighbors have attacked Israel 3 times. Israel has not attacked them, Israel has settlers in the West Bank. They have as much right to be there as do the current Arabs, who never ruled the land. Israel does not have a clandestine nuclear arms program. It does not acknowledge it but it is well known to exist and Israel does not deny it. It is said ir has 80 such weapons. It has them within Israel and on submarines. No secret. Since Israel does not attack its neighbors but the reverse is not true with a much larger force it needs nuclear weapons. It was planning to use them when attacked by Egypt and the war was going badly but then managed without doing so. All this is well known. The US is a strong supporter of Israel and has many Jews living in the US who contribute in important ways to our society and economy. We give financial aid to Israel. So what is your problem aside from needing a head doctor?
