  • Yes they should- they're surrounded by violent Islamic nations, if they didn't have nuclear weapons they would have been ripped to shreds by these savages.

  • Yes, they're surrounded by countries who follow a religion that specifically states to kill them.

  • Israel is surrounded by hostile enemies who look for an opportunity to wipe out the tiny Jewish state. A nuclear Israel is the only solution to the rise of extremist countries like Iran and maintain peace in the Middle East.

  • Isreal is a beacon of democracy surrounded by a bunch of fascist terroristic Islamic regimes and they should have nukes to defend themselves

  • No, no one should be allowed to have Nuclear Weapons despite the fact that the possibility of Nuclear Wars are unlikely for example look at the Vikings who never conquered Kingdoms instead raiding them since once you own everything you can't make anything extra. This can be applied with Bombs as once you bomb land it becomes useless it is also worth noting that Nuclear Weapons can easily be shot down now.

  • No one is allowed to have such barbaric , anti human weapons. I just wonder how those countries which have nuclear bombs talk about human right!!! Israel has proven to be aggressive, wild and warmonger. I am well aware that one they will turn their back even to Americans.

  • of course not. if US stops vetoing anything that is against that regime, we will see a more stable world and middle east. possession of nuclear, chemical, bio, and other types of mass destruction weaponry by Israel, not only is illegal, but shows the real face of UN's discrimination and the world's democracy.

  • no they are a dangeroud country

  • Nuclear proliferation as a whole is bad. On top of that giving them to a country who has shown it isn't afraid to attack other countries.

  • No one should have nukes. And if someone like Avigdor Lieberman came to power we know they would be used.

Israel's already had them for decades, if I'm not mistaken.

@Vox_Veritias you are correct they have had Nuclear Weapons since 1967.

Also, a nuclear missile cannot "easily be shot down". An object moving at 3600 MPH would travel one mile per second; ICBMs can travel much, much faster than this. And it isn't just speed; to shoot down a nuclear missile, you have to pinpoint its exact location over thousands of miles of airspace. These two factors combined mean that the attacker always has the advantage in nuclear war; there is no effective method on planet earth of shooting thousands of nuclear missiles out of the sky all at once. THAAD is the most effective nuclear missile defense system in the world, and it's only designed for dealing with a small handful of nuclear missiles launched by primitive nuclear powers such as North Korea or Iran.

@Vox_Veritas You are mistaken my god Sir. Here read this Link http://www.Airspacemag.Com/military-aviation/can-we-stop-a-nuke-16988105/?No-ist / Anyhow you forget that things like ICBMs and such lose their thrusters in the mid range and given how easy it is to spy on everyone in today's day and age you could prepare to shoot down the missile. As for multiple Nuclear Bombs being launched at once another simple answer is intercept the bulk with your own Missile so that it can destroy all the other ones. Either way they can be shot down and it's getting easier in today's day and age the scary thing is that Nuclear Weapons are becoming obsolete as threats.

Can someone please explain using the rules that we have in this world, how is it Ok for people to steal people's lands and kill them and then attack other countries and amass weapons of mass destruction, and still be accepted as a peaceful regime? Israel is worse that ISIS.

Why does everyone say Israel is aggressive? They have never provoked a war!

When Hamas fires rockets into Israel and Palestinians bomb Israelis, you can't expect Israel to not give a response. Hamas and Palestinians are the true aggressors and Israel is the victim of their terror and aggression.
