Stephff’s cartoon left Mideast history out of picture

Stephff’s cartoon yesterday depicting Israel’s possession of 200 nukes lacks any context.

In all of Israel’s wars against its Arab neighbours, Israel has never even once threatened to use its nuclear arsenal.

Israel has taken Iran’s continued threat to wipe it out very seriously. Should Israel wait until Iran strikes first?

To compare Israel – a democratic country with checks and balances and even an Arab/Muslim political party – to the Islamist ayatollahs who control Iran, is fanciful.
