Israeli chemical weapons are a footnote

I doubt that any Western reporter will call for the removal of the Israeli government due to Israeli stockpile of chemical weapons (not to mention its arsenal of nuclear and biological weapons): "To date, only three countries – Egypt, North Korea and South Sudan – have neither signed nor ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention, plus Israel which has signed but have not ratified."  So 3 out of the 4 countries listed are close US allies.  A coincidence, I am sure.
