Would this then make them the envy of the muslim world? Would even the Sunnis rejoice at this event?
I like it when you used the word "world" instead of US . the world is this : en.wikipedia.org...

Of also note, all the big players had just went through a costly world war and where in no position to fight the US, especially as the US didn't join til the end and was still in pretty damn good shape militarily. Plus due to our being the only ones with nukes at the time, after we bombed Japan we were the scariest kids on the block.
Iran is a piddly little # country that the world could put down with little to no personal cost if they decided to.
I posit that Iran knows all this and despite everyone's desire to believe otherwise the country will not suicidally martyr itself over Israel.

You really have a strange view of history and the current situation in the middle east. First let's start with it an trying to take on the US Iran isn't that stupid. They've already had naval encounters and it didn't go well for them. Speaking from a military standpoint only take at most a couple of months but more likely weeks to remove their miltary.
Now as far as control of the middle east that prize goes to the Saudis they were able to take Iran out the picture long ago. Even with it and resurgence with suthis you see what Saudis are doing once again.
And last we come to your weird version of history and protecting jews. You do realize that babalon invaded the area twice and took Jews as slaves don't you? Not sure how this helped the Jews exactly in your strange version of history.
Now to stay on topic Iran is not going to nuke Israel that would be suicide for them and they know it. This is just paranoia on the Israelis part. They have been surrounded by hostile nations for so long they don't trust anyone.
