    The only correct accusation here is that Israel has indeed nuclear weapons. I do not agree with that either, but the main reason Israel started to have it is because of ''the samson option''. This states that if Israel is doomed to be destroyed, it will take its enemy(ies) with her. Israel will never use nuclear force if its existence is not really really threatened. Another thing is that Israel has NEVER started a war without being it a war of self defense. The 2006 lebanon war was to free the kidnapped soldier and to stop the rockets, the war against Hamas was again, stop stop the rockets. No rockets=no war. Which other country in the world wouldn't react if constantly being attacked by rockets? Israel could already have given back the westbank, IF giving back Gaza would not have been such a failure. Because by giving back gaza, what Israel got were rockets. If they give back the westbank, and the same happens, Israel can be attacked from 3 sided (west, north and south)

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship
