I don't fail to realize it. I know they will use them if threatened, they nearly did twice... in 73 (when they were about to lose) and in 91 (when
Saddam was launching chemical scuds).
Israel will pretty certainly not
use nuclear weapons on any of its near neighbors; it's a completely unsound strategy, and is generally
guaranteed to result in even more dead Israelis.
Though granted, if there's one thing the Zionists love, it's piles of dead Jews. So I guess that could factor.
Also, Saddam didn't launch any chemicals during the first gulf war; he used conventional weapons for that one.
And they said many times that if anyone uses WMDs (chemical or biological) weapons against them, they will retaliate with nukes. Syria nearly
launched WMDs against Israel in 2007 in retaliation for Israel bombing their nuclear power plant.
Also false; Syria considered military retaliation - and to be honest, they would be completely within their rights to do so - but no mention of
But Egypt opening the border to Gaza or Hamas or Hezbollah launching a few rockets is not threatening Israel's existence.
Frankly the only thing that can threaten Israel's existence is its own government.
