It is widely known, rhetoric aside, that Iran is not a "maximum threat" even when it gains nukes, which it will at some point. It's also widely known that Israel is facing grave threats that are understated in the media. Israeli leadership is cognizant of the serious abstract threats that certainly are existential but which cannot be 'fought in a concrete way. It is the same base motive Germany had, as offensive as that analogy may be. German leadership were heroes to their people until the dream passed. Israel is walking on the same path and helping set the stage for whoever writes the history books of tomorrow about Jewish economics, politics etc.
