Generally speaking, most people oppose any nuclear proliferation whether it be Iran or Switzerland. This is why there is an NPT (which Israel has not signed). The same people who oppose nuclear proliferation recognize that a balance of power is the greatest deterrent to war. Currently, Israel is frothing at the mouth to attack Iran. This would not be the case if Iran had nuclear weapons. This is a sad reality, but a reality nonetheless. If Israel is serious about wanting Iran to renounce nuclear arms, then Israel must also renounce nuclear arms. Even Israelis should be able to understand this.
