A strong case can be made that possession of a nuclear bomb by other Middle East nations, under international control (something Israel has resisted), would stabilize the Middle East.

Ironically, Israel is more jeopardized by the threatened usage of nuclear bombs than its actual usage. It will become increasingly difficult to persuade even the most fanatical Jew to relocate to Israel under terms of continual war. It will also be harder to convince other nations to support a perpetually warring Israel.

Currently, Israel is laboring under the delusion that it can remain the sole Middle East nation possessing a nuclear bomb. When other Middle East nations obtain the nuclear bomb the threat of continual or perpetual war will cease and a stable balance of terror will ensue.

Of course, any suggestion that Israel is its own worst enemy will be vehemently denounced as anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism.

Thinkers must push back and demand that Israel negotiate a peace and working relationships with its neighbors - before being forced to do so by other atomic bomb possessing Middle East nations.

In this regard Jimmy Carter’s book "Palestine Peace Not Apartheid" is prescient and should be embraced not condemned.
