    I commend General Eiland on an excellent interview, and I share most of his assessments. However, his concern that an Iranian nuclear bomb would trigger a wave of pride in Moslem nations worldwide puzzles me. Why didn't the development of the Pakistani arsenal about two decades ago encourage such a wave then or now? Indeed, Pakistan is the world's second largest Moslem nation after Indonesia, and it is mainly Sunni, so following Eiland's idea, the wave should be even greater. The problem grows as Pakistan may be the only nuclear power actively increasing its arsenal at present. If anything, I believe that Iran that the main reason that Iran may be moving toward a weapon is to contest the Sunni vs Shia World War that flares up frequently. The current round is going on in Syria. I would be interested in how General Eiland views this conflict, and how it might affect Israel. Again, thanks for a thoughtful article on a difficult subject.
