    with all due respect to the writer, there is no comparison to the acquisition of a nuclear device between iran and israel.and hear is why. the main reason israel developed its nuclear program was and is its geographical location and its size,the wars, attacks from its neighbors and its bitter experience of being threatened for its survival through out its history.that is why there is a silent unspoken agreement in the western countries for its acquisition of a military nuclear program. israel has never threatened any country with its annihilation or using its power or even admitted to the existents of a nuke,on the other hand iran's acquisition of a nuke is for aggression purpose as stated by their own government. iran that is 50 times or more larger then the state of israel,has no natural enemies has not been threatened by its neighbors and has all the neutral reassures any other country would long for.iran sponsors terrorist organizations iran is a terrorist state ,iran had and still dose threaten israel the u.s and in a more sadle way its next door neighbors. i can go on but surly the writer is aware of the implication , there is no double standard,there is nothing to compare.iran is the aggressor where the state of israel is only trying to survive and defend itself.
