    What makes you say that no one seems to be concerned with the nuclear weapons stockpiles of India and Pakistan?  Frankly, much more concern is expressed about the nuclear stockpiles of Pakistan than are ever said about Israel's nuclear weapons caches.

    Just what asymmetry of the strategic situation in the Middle East are you braying about?  Israel is the 800-pound gorilla in the Middle East living room, not any of the other nations there.  The situation today bears no resemblance to the situation which might have existed in the late 1940s through 1960s.  To try to resurface those claims is unacceptable.

    Iran has every reason and right - mind you, the right - to conduct its current nuclear development program.  Bibi keeps yammering about Iran getting the "capability" to proceed to developing nuclear weapons, but he really wants is to shut down Iran's nuclear program totally.  Just what is Israel willing to pay to get Iran to shutter its nuclear fuel program?  The world has heard nothing but silence from Bibi's team on this topic despite all of the noise he makes about weapons.  Just what will be offered to persuade Iran to surrender its NPT right to commercial development of nuclear technology?
