    Just like like the Soviet-American Cold War, the victor in this new Iranian-Israeli cold war will be the country with the stronger and more stable political system. Remember that the Soviets were never defeated by the americans- they defeated themselves by dismantling their own corrupt political institutions. The Iranian people will soon do the same, as they come to the realization that their leaders are corrupt and not are accountable. Iranians resent that. Now contrast that with israel, where the people realize that their leaders are fully acountable for their actions, and are less corrupt than any arab country or iran ( see global corruption indices) Examples- Katzav, Olmert, the general who led the Lebanon war ( forget his name) , and the list could go on all day of the politicians or leaders who have been crushed by the Israeli legal system and the media. Israel will prevail in the cold war, just as the US prevailed and Soviets were thrown into dustheap.
