How is it a double standard? Israel is an ally.
Israel is the ally of the far religious right in the country. To the rest of us its just another country draining of us our resources and our relations with other nations.
Our allies should have nuclear weapons
Since when? When did the United states have the authority as to what nations can and cant have nuclear weapons? Did God give us that authority? What BS, seriously.

Double standards any one, or do we still have our heads under the sand. WAKE UP!
I personally believe the US should stop this none-sense not because they have to, but because they should care. They should care that certain policies of theirs causes more harm than good.
Barack Obama, the US president, has agreed to abide by a 40-year policy of allowing Israel to keep nuclear weapons without opening them to international inspection, according to a US newspaper.
In a report on Saturday, The Washington Times quoted three unnamed sources as saying Obama had confirmed to Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's prime minister, that he would maintain the "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

If Obama wants to be serious about disarming the world of nukes, and wants Iran to stop all enrichment activity's, then I think he should address Israel's nuclear stockpile...
Wouldn't that make sense?
Obama isn't in any posistion to disarm any country other then his own. The UN as a whole agreed to the terms against Iran. If the UN decides as a whole to disarm the world of Nukes then everyone with a Nuke will be addressed.
In his view, the continued struggle of the Palestinians will inexhorably lead to the collapse of the State of Israel. Which is why Tel-Aviv has no choice but to "transfer" the Israeli Arabs and the stateless Palestinians beyond safe borders (that is, not only outside the 1948 borders but also from the 1976 occupied territories and, ideally, from the West Bank and the Gaza Strip). In the event the Europeans opposed such a transfer, in order to survive Tel Aviv will be forced to destroy the European capitals with nuclear weapons, it being understood that the Europeans will be unable to retaliate without annihilating their Palestinian friends
