some will said: "Israel has nuclear weapons. So Iran is entitled to have them too...."

and this is my response to you:

*Who threatens to destroy whom?

• Iran and Israel are not in equivalent situations

• Israel does not challenge the right to exist of Iran , or any other country

• By contrast, Iran denies the right to exist of Israel and its leaders openly call for Israel to be "wiped off the map"

• Israel requires nuclear arms as a last-resort deterrent against Iran and others who proclaim their wish to destroy it and who acquire and use either massive conventional armouries or weapons of mass destruction

*The ideology of their countries' leaders

• Iran 's leaders make open genocidal statements advocating mass destruction

• Israel 's leaders are silent about their nuclear capability. Leading Israeli advisers speak in cautious and low key terms about it

*The position of the international community

• The international community accepts Israel 's nuclear capability as a strategic reality

• Iran 's nuclear ambitions are strongly opposed by the UN Security Council and by almost the entire international community

*Nuclear weapons and national prestige

• Iran claims the right to make nuclear weapons as a matter of national prestige and Muslim honour.

• Israel makes no equivalent claim to this
