    What would world governments and the press say if Iran said "We can't accept that Israel has nuclear weapons - we see them as a threat to our existence and we will bomb their facilities within months". What gives Israel the right to preemptively strike another country? Why is there not uproar about this? Even the CIA says that Iran is not developing nuclear weapons, and even if they were, does that give anyone the right to bomb them? Who bombed Israel, or Pakistan, or North Korea, or India when they developed them? Israel is small and vulnerable, it should be making friends by treating the Palestinians fairly instead of making enemies by abusing them. The Israeli government is inviting another holocaust. I have little empathy with Iran and I want to be sympathetic towards Israel, but the government Israelis have chosen is making it hard.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
