2. It's a lie that Israel is the only "truly" threatened country in the region. Israel and the United States constantly threaten Iran and the United States INVADED Iraq and Afghanistan. Israel and Iran both have rational security interests. The problem I see in the analysis of your posts is that you're only examining this from a Western perspective. I've already provided you with links to primary sources and actual research - not just Obama trying to get re-elected and CNN trying to get views. You can read them or not, but right now, your arguments just seem uninformed.
