Why shouldnt Egypt be allowed nuclear weapons? The US condones Israel's nuclear capability which hamstrings Arab nations. A bit of parity wouldnt go amiss in the Middle East.

Although Egypt signed the Nonproliferation Treaty, it has become in recent years one of the treaty's most vocal critics, mainly because of concerns about Israel's undeclared nuclear arsenal and more recent fears about Iran's nuclear agenda.
