Do you not see it as a double standard that they criticize Iran for their nuclear ambitions which follow international law yet they have up to 300
nuclear war heads themselves? They are talking about striking Iran because of this. They are hypocrites, plain and simple.

No not a double standard - not even a little bit. Signatories to the UN sponsored IAEA treaty get technical help and expertise for peaceful use of
nuclear power, to advance medical treatments, power plants etc.
In return treaty signatories promise to NOT weaponize nuclear technology and to submit to IAEA inspections.
Israel NOT having signed the treaty and submitting to its inspections was actually honest about its path to being a nuclear power.
Iran and North Korea being signatories to the treaty took advantage of the "free" help and then reneged on their promise's by using that knowledge
to weaponize their programs.
Lets watch whom we're calling hypocrites.
Israel would have been long ago over run by its oh so friendly and benevolent neighbors had it submitted to an IAEA regimen especially in light of
"see nothing - hear nothing, know nothing" IAEA chairmanship by Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei of Egypt who is now openly aligned with the Muslim
Brotherhood, an organization long espousing the destruction of Israel. ElBaradei is the single most destructive human being in existence IMHO because
he alone seems to have been the chief enabler of proliferation, a job he circumvented judiciously in relation to Iran and North Korea.
IMHO Israel having nuclear weapons is not my wish and regrettable but seems a grudging necessity being surrounded by hostile nations, maybe Israel
would rather have invested the capitol required for its program in something more befitting its citizens - national survival comes first. However
Israel also now also has a history of restraint during open and asymmetric warfare that satisfies me they are have a deterrent nuclear philosophy.
The benevolent neighbors on the other-hand have attacked multiple times and/or espouse the destruction of Israel - when is the last time you've had
an Israeli leader unprovoked come out and say they'd like to see "Little Satan" destroyed. Or lets say Mecca of a Capitol of another Arab
The OP on this post would be better off asking why neighbors won't leave well enough alone and go about their business. Hypocrisy is using another
peoples differences, religion and political systems as the mechanism to blame neglect and poverty of their countrymen on others instead of their
failed policies - Late 1930's Germany is a great example of that methodology "blame it on the Jews" - see where that led too and what the end
Yeah hypocrisy abounds......................
