I assume that I’m not the only Israeli who wonders what Iran in fact wants from us. We do not share a border with Iran and we never had a substantive conflict. Even the conflict we have vis-à-vis their Palestinian “brethren” cannot explain the deep hostility of the Iranian regime towards Israel. They are not even “brothers,” as the Iranians are not Arabs. While they are Muslims they are not from the “right camp.”
The Iranians are Shiite while most of the Arabs around us (with the exception of the south Lebanon population) are Sunni. And so, why are the Iranians regularly declaring their desire to eliminate our state? What do they want from us?
