  •  Not ridiculous, Israel has a nuclear arsenal (0+ / 0-)

    and as such military might is of little use against them.

    Sure, they may have sanctions put against them, but they do not actually rely on other countries for their military might, US aid programs account for about 3 billion in mostly military aid, although Israel doesn't rely on it.  At this points it's primarilly welfare for weapons manufacturers.

    •  Fat lot of good that does them (2+ / 0-)

      against the West Bank and Gaza. I mean...really?

      Even if you conceded that Israel were willing to use its nukes in response to anything other than a nuclear attack (I don't think they least I certainly hope not), nuking Gaza would be stupid. It's like if England nuked Wales.
