Israeli nukes?

Reader comment on item: Why I Am Not Writing About Iran

Submitted by Ari Zade (Australia), Mar 6, 2012 at 14:39

Why would the Israelis want to use nukes? Has there been some major development in nuke technology?

Despite the "it might be" and the "possible use" qualifiers, I don't think this reference to Israeli nukes is helpful.
