Yes, there was sufficient reason for you to include that information as Israel had been threatened and threatened, and threatened more with extinction, had their southern port access blocked, and Arab armies lined up on three sides with the stated purpose of "wiping them out."
You neglected to mention those little facts just to skew a point. Had nothing to do with "everyone" knows that. That is about the cheesiest backpedaling I've ever seen.
What, for God's sake does the Blue on Blue attack on the USS Liberty have to do with this? Is this just more justification to hate Israel? I'm very much aware of the event, and I'm very much aware that the Liberty was out of place. It was supposed to be somewhere else, and in the middle of a shooting war, being in the wrong place is not good.
I'm not arguing against Iran's navy and what-not being unable to pass anywhere in international waters, but we all know historically, Iran has never had any presence in the Med, as traditionally, Arabs all hate Persians, and vice-versa.
Yep, Israel is paranoid. Upon becoming a nation, a coalition of Lebanon, Syria, Arab guerrillas, Transjordan, Saudi, Iraq, and Egyptians attacked, with the publicly stated purpose of wiping Israel out.
Same stated goal in 1967, Israel had their southern port blocked, and massive armies of infantry, armor and artillery that vastly outnumbered total Israeli forces attacked Israel from three sides from Syria, Jordan, and Egypt.
Attacked again in 1973 by a coalition of Syria and Egypt

And when warships are on the move in a highly stressed situation over there there gonna be a little worried. Would you want Iranian warships headed up the Mississippi for training exercises? I wouldnt!
Odd, there's more Jews in Iran than in Israel..
They are all fine..Iran is NOT anti Jew, that's obvious..
