Might Jerusalem Survive A Nuke?

I checked out Would I Survive A Nuke (via Gizmodo). You enter your location and choose size of closest population centers and bombs and hit enter.

I chose a relatively conservative scenario — A single 50 megaton atomic bomb hitting Tel Aviv. It would indeed have an effect on nearby Jerusalem. What would such strike mean for Jerusalem, home of thousands of Jews, Palestinians, holy sites, and yours truly?

I punched in the same scenario for Ramallah. It’s no safer. If the head-to-toe second degree burns don’t kill people there, radiation sickness will.

Moral of the story: A zero state solution isn’t in Israeli or Palestinian interests.
