Israel's nukes vs. Iran's nukes

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision to abruptly cancel a trip to a nuclear conference in Washington spotlighted a key sore point Friday in international nonproliferation efforts: Israel's own atomic weapons.

The Jewish state wants to help lead the charge against allowing nuclear weapons to end up in undesirable hands, even when nobody doubts that Israel itself possesses them.

For those who don't know the difference between an Israeli nuclear arsenal and an Iranian nuclear arsenal, the difference is that Israel would never bomb America.

That’s nothing (I.e., Israel won’t bomb us). I've had progressives ask me why WE can have them but Iraq [under Saddam] can not....

Sometimes I just don’t know what say to those types. Too far out there for me to communicate with.
