Why doesnt American News ever report on Israel's Nuclear Weapons?

Iran's nuclear "weapon" program(according to US bought IAEA chief Amano) gets headline time for hours throughout the day, and how Israel feels threatened. But why isnt Israels nuclear weapons ever mentioned, reported on etc? Why is American news so hush hush about Israeli nukes? Do their owners have a dog in the race too?

    There are currently 6 nations with sanctioned nuclear arsenals (USA, UK, Russia, China, Israel, France) and 3 stating they have the capability (India, Pakistan, and North Korea). There are sanctions against these three countries from obtaining nuclear capabilities, as well as those against Iran obtaining them, because no one wants more nuclear proliferation. More nukes in more hands is not a good thing, cause it ups the chances of people actually using them, which no one wants. We don't say anything about Israel having nukes cause they've had them for about 50 years and have never once even threatened to use them, and never would use them cause the other 5 nations would turn against them including the US which is their largest supporter. We're simply not worried about them. We are worried about Iran getting them, cause quite frankly their president is crazy, their power rests in the hands of a religious oligarchy above the president who are constantly disagreeing with him and with each other, and we have no idea what would happen if they gained nuclear capabilities but chances are it wouldn't make for a happy middle east.

    This is because Israel is completely under influence of the U.S. and they are allies. Whatever weapons Israel has presents no threat to American interests at this stage. In fact, a stronger Israel increases the influence of U.S. in the region. When it comes to Iran, things are very different. A stronger Iran would hinder U.S. influence and Middle Eastern states would cluster around Iran. They may start following Iran backed independent policies.

    Have you figured out yet that the Israeli's have had the bomb for almost fifty years and they;'ve never used it once? Now, can you imagine the palestinians who launch rockets at Israel on a daily basis having a nuclear bomb? Or those kooks in Iran?

    It is old news, although it has never been officially admitted we have known they had them since the 1970s, and they made sure the countries in the middle east knew, When writing about Iran they do not often mention that the US or Russia have them either, because media assumes people already know that too.
