It is supposed that Israel has the atomic bomb. They have never tested one, but they have the weapons grade fuel and the know how to make an atomic bomb. We assume they have one or more. They have never used the bomb, but I assume if they were pressed to the end, they could use it. Contrast that with any of the Islamic radical organizations like Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran. Does anyone here really think that if the jihadists had the means to deliver and detonate an atomic bomb in Tel Aviv or New York, they would hesitate to use it? What would bring more Islamic adulation to a man like Ahdiemajad (sp?)? Being known as the man who brought lasting peace to the Middle East or the man who destroyed Israel? We already have examples in reality that tell us what would occur. Anwar Sadat negotiatied a peace for Egypt and was assasinated. Islamic Jihadists bombed New York using planes as bombs and were exalted through out radical Islam (Is there any other kind? lately) as warrrior gods and heroes. Does anyone doubt that had they nuclear capability they would have hesitated to detonate the bomb in Central Park? To make it real, you are a gay man in New York, enjoying a night out at a club, and you and all your friends are incinerated just because you are an American. If you don't think that can happen, you are dreaming in technicolor. There is the difference between Radical Islam and democratic Israel.
