For me the main line of the poem is "A war that could erase the Iranian people." The Israelis have NEVER threatened to erase the Iranian people whereas the powers in Iran HAVE threatened over and over to erase "the Zionist entity from the map". With all due respect to the good people of Iran , Israel has asked to have the UN nuclear watchdog to stop Iran ...but to no avail. Secondly the IDF strictly has some sort of plan to hit nuclear installations ONLY. A far cry from "erasing the Iranian people". It is one thing to take poetic license it is another thing to instigate hatred.
