I have always wondered why Iran wants to be involved to the point they are willing to risk their own destruction in their desire to annihilate Israel
over the Gaza Strip. This is also rather interesting that Iran has zero investment or care for the Palestinians, nor do they have any historical
connection, while the Palestinians themselves feel no connection to Iran either.
I think one needs to look to the more extreme nature of the Iranian government and how with new generations they work to maintain that extremism. It
is in the basic nature of younger generations to become more moderate in their views as they desire a better life, more freedom, and greater choices
than their forefathers had, and this is true in any country. For Iran they use extremism as their control and when you are extreme you need a bad guy
or guys to fuel it. If there were no bad guys then it would be very hard to fuel that type of control.
History shows that Iran at one point had Iraq as their evil they needed to overcome. In that war to become a martyr was viewed as an honor to the
family, and many young people, even children became human mine hunters. Now we see ten to twenty thousand signing up to be martyrs once again for
cause. Am I the only one to see this as genocide of your own young population, all for the sake to maintain control over the population as a whole
using fear and hate as the motivators?
If the Arab world really wanted to help the Palestine refugees they could dump food, construction, industries into the Gaza Strip instead of weapons
and hate. The ruling party in the Gaza Strip also use hate for Israel as their motivator for control and would rather launch rockets then to build a
For those who say it is all a shame that Israel has pulled out for they continue to keep a total lockdown on Gaza to starve them out, history shows
this is not the case. In pass wars Israel even though they won with great gains in land were still willing to give it all back once those countries
worked with them in a peaceful way. Both Jordan and Egypt have done this successfully even though they were part of a very bloody war in the past with
Israel. Israel has also shown that they will not hold back when provoked, and this is their greatest weakness for Arab countries rely on it to fuel
their hate and extremism instead of working to prevent it.
So coming back to the title, if Iran attacks Israel it has little to do with the Palestinians and more to do with what they need to do every few
decades to maintain their extremists control over their own people, even if it means death to 100,000s of them. Do not be fooled by what those in
control are willing to sacrifice to maintain that control.
