Israeli leaders have said they need to be the "bad'er' country in the bad neighborhood" time and time again (not word for word, but the same meaning). Would a 'nice' country need weapons of mass destruction? Would a 'nice' country deny 100,000's of Palestinians food and shelter? Would a 'nice' country assassinate foreign leaders on an unprecedented level? Would a 'nice' country want peace with Iran, rather then destroy Iran? Tell me, what is YOUR definition of a 'nice' country. Because clearly Israel does not fit the description..
