Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy and Turkey have nuclear weapons.
Also I am not a patriot or a nationalist. I respond to bigots who are unfairly prejudiced against or critical of the USA or Israel. Because there are so many of these people, it might appear like I am in favor of or especially enamored with these countries. I'm not. I left the US almost a decade ago and have no intention of going back. Israel is a fascinating place but I'd never want to live there and don't support the idea of countries based on religions.
How about its recent actions (see airstrikes) in Syria and Lebanon?
The neighbours of Israel never expressed a desire to utterly destroy Israel, they only expressed such desire to its government and its status as a country, not the country itself.
On top of that i do not think the history should be forgotten in this matter. Israel, or Jewish settlers back in the day, contributed massively to the hatred that Palestinians, Arabs and many others feel today when they look at Israel. The current Israëli government, nor any Israëli government over the past years have done anything to settle relations with Palestine or with its neighbours. In fact, the amount of countries criticizing Israel on its policy regarding its neighbours, especially Palestine, is only increasing in recent years and will continue as long as they keep following such agressive policy and as long as they refuse to make peace with their neighbours.
Israel's neighbors never expressed a desire to destroy Israel (the country), only to destroy it's status as a country? How does that make sense? I guess... you could say that some of Israel's neighbors have *merely* expressed their hellbent intent to commit wholesale genocide against all the *people* of Israel.. so... that might be comforting to the rocks there? Iran did mention wanting to wipe Israel off the map. That could be interpreted as a threat to the geography, though I'm sure you're right and they only meant it metaphorically- ending Israeli sovereignty, destroying it's democracy and government, rounding up and murdering all of its citizens, demolishing its history. Don't know why Israelis would feel threatened by that.
If you believe that hatred of Jews and Israelis is entirely justified and the conflict is all one-sided, then I humbly submit that you do not know your history very well. I'm not saying that Israelis are without fault; I'm not saying that forming religious ethno-states is a good idea; but I am saying the history is not nearly as simple or one-sided as your comment implies you believe it is. And hatred of Jews amongst Muslims goes back to the time of Muhammad, well before there was an Israel.
But... whether Moses, Joshua (probably no), David, and Solomon (probably yes) were real or not, does that have some bearing on the discussion about Israel being a threat to its neighbors? Or you were just saying that Jews were there before Arabs?
What? This will help whom protect themselves? The Israelis? How? It antagonizes people and puts many Israelis in danger. I don't necessarily agree with all your other statements though I could at least follow your logic. I don't get this one at all, though.
The Nuclear Program of Iran is one of peacefull purposes, think of electricity and medical stuff.
Here are some sources:
The entire reason why western media have been whining about it is because Iran is not a pro-western country. In fact, now that a deal has been reached, how much of that whining do you still hear? Pretty much nothing even though the deal has changed Iran's nuclear program in any way.
There's also this thing called the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
I do wish there was a like button on this site.
I was just spamming big powerful countries until I got it right
While Ukraine had physical control of the weapons, it did not have operational control of the weapons as they were dependent on Russian-controlled electronic Permissive Action Links and the Russian command and control system.
They should have kept the nukes.
Best solution to this problem would probably be to make it so NO country has nuclear weapons. They are too dangerous to keep around anywhere.
