Has everyone lost sight of the fact that Iran has a long term approach to the destruction of Israel. By having nuclear weapons, even without using them now, it increases and consolidates its power and influence in the ME. It already has a strong power base in a divided and weak Lebanon, it is waiting for the power vacuum in Iraq with the exit of the US to grab control of Iraq and Syria is ever more and more dependent on it for support. It will then gobble up the rest of the Arabian peninsula emirates without anyone lifting a finger to stop them. Finally, it will focus all its consolidated power on what it always wanted, the destruction of Israel. Who will stop them from using nuclear missiles against Israel then? It would then be seen as a world war of religions. The West will never run the risk. The handwriting is on the wall.
