Now that's rational and no doubt a part of it. However I can't forget the insane words coming from the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei or President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. It also ignores that Hamas and Hezbolah are in fact Iran. You fund them and supply the weapons, they are you.
Religious fanaticism and their belief in the the Last Imam and a worldwide Caliphate make it about far more than just prestige. They want the Jews and
all of the Western World gone. Let's not forget they don't even consider Jews to be entirely human. For Khamenei killing all the Jews would be like
slaughtering a herd of animals.
Yes a war between Iran and Israel is something to fear greatly, but it does not change the facts regarding the leaders in Iran. Like most I have only
sympathy for the people of Iran as prisoners of a Theocratic Dictatorship ran by fanatics.
I have no trouble at all understanding Israel after they have sat on their hands while thousands of missiles compliments of Iran have been launched
indiscriminately into their country. I can only imagine how any other country might respond to a neighbor doing that to them. Israel has shown plenty
of restraint, in fact it's amazing how long they have let this go on already.
Iran is the cause of this, not the other way around. Iran does not give a damn about the Palestinians and neither does their sock puppets Hamas and
Hezbolah. They use them as an excuse.
