I'm not the only one to get it.

Joseph Farah at WorldNetDaily nicely sums up the motives for wanting to disarm Israel.
Al Baradei (who is an Arab) wants to take Israel's nukes away, but doesn't really mind that Iran is working to aquire them.

Quote: 'Most people would agree that a firearm in the hands of a law-abiding, moral person is not a problem. In fact, a firearm in the hands of a good person is a deterrent to crime and violence. The problem is when a violent criminal gets his hands on firearms.

It works the same way in international affairs.

No one has to worry about the United States using nuclear weapons on other countries without provocation. However, if the United States unilaterally disarmed, it would invite nuclear and conventional attacks by other nations because they would no longer fear the ultimate form of retaliation.

Likewise, no one has to fear that Israel will one day decide to nuke Damascus, Tehran or Cairo preemptively. It could have done so anytime in the last 40 years.'

My thought exactly.
