to be taken in midle east it should be same for Israel as well. So either it should be total nuke free zone bcoz selective favouritism is no longer an
option in todays practical world.
I agree with most of this, although I don't perceive a nuclear Israel as a "threat" to anyone - Israel does not threaten the existence of any other
countries, whereas historically most of Israel's neighbours have vociferously threatened to destroy Israel.
A nuclear armed Iran scares the hell out of me. However the West cannot take any moral high ground on nuclear proliferation while we have stockpiles
of tens of thousands of hydrogen bombs. It's hypocrisy.
Ultimately I don't think anyone or anything can change what's going to happen. Iran will have nukes eventually, and it will cause a shift in
geopolitical allegiances in the Middle East for the worst in my opinion. We'll just have to deal with it.
