    Iran is constantly referred to as an enemy. They haven't attacked Israel, hell they haven't attacked anybody in several hundred years. They have engaged in covert actions against a number of countries, but Israel has engaged in those types of actions for years. Iran has certainly expressed its distaste for the Jewish state, but it has a fairly large population Jews who resided quite peacefully in Iran. Everyone should know by now that the purposefully mistranslated statement by their President wasn't a promise to attack Israel, but a interpretation of history, no matter how wrong, about the continued existence of the Israeli state, not of Jews or even Jews in the holy land. When Kruschev said "we will bury you" we didn't immediately go to war with the USSR. We built up our deterrence and maintained a strong military. Stop the hysteria. Israel isn't going anywhere, and you are a long way from Iran. Pakistan is not particularly friendly to Israel policies, but I don't see a drum beat for war there.

Netanyahu trades Israel's democracy for a shtetl with German submarines
