    - of the ME, not excluding even one. but currently it also means excluding & blocking out a country that doesn't have anything to do w/the ME, not even in the geographical sense, namely iran. iran is bent on & has made it one of its prime objectives to meddle in the most burning affairs concerning the ME, ie w/israel-palestine & w/lebanon. almost as if it had some special entitlement /prerogative to do so, while it in fact has no such rights, not even valid reasons. f.ex. it was never threatened by any of the countries central to the ME & has no accounts to settle, least of all terrtorial ones. of course i'm not talking about the iranian people as such, but the regime in place since khomeyni in -79, the regime that 'singlehandedly' has decided that it is its (probably divine) calling & entitlement to make this a centerpiece of their policy. it goes without saying that this also is a centerpiece of their offically sanctioned theology. it's not more complicated than that.
