One reason why Iran is not "entitled" to nukes 

There seems to be some sense in the Muslim world that the West is being "unfair" to Iran because it is pressuring it to give up development of the nuclear fuel cycle, which will enable it to develop material for weapons. If Israel and other countries in the region can have nuclear weapons, why can't Iran?

Well, one reason is that the chief executives of other countries in the region don't threaten to annihilate their neighbors.
Iran's hard-line president called for Israel to be "wiped off the map" and said a new wave of Palestinian attacks will destroy the Jewish state, state-run media reported Wednesday.

The entire world knows that the only "Palestinian attacks" that might destroy the Jewish state are those conducted with banned weapons of mass destruction. So what is President Ahmadinejad proposing?

And then, of course, there's always this.

I'd say it differently. They're entitled to try.

And we're entitled to view it as a threat (so is Israel) and deal with it accordingly.
