I agree, Israel does have the right to defend itself. But the definition of defneding oneself or a nation defending itself does not mean outright genocidal killing sprees.
Israel's leadership is spouting ideas of using nukes and comparing this stuff to WWII and the US vs Japan. That my friend is obvious paranoia, and obviously calls into question of their mental state of mind.
Israel is also responsible for those attacks on them. It is not trivial or requires the use of a slide rule to know why they get rocket attacks and why the surrounding nations want to attack. Israel has oppressed and supressed an entire society and has nigged on promises and agreements just as the PLO in the past has and just as Hamas has in the present.
There are two sides to the story. Both are responsible, both are at fault, and the last thing that needs to be bandied about is using some nuclear weapon and justify it to an event that occured over 60 years ago, and under completely different circumstances that were far more of a threat than teeny tinny Gaza and Hamas.
They want to cure the disease by killing the paitent. Definately IMO is desperation of a genocidal mindset.
