    I have yet to see anyone demonstrate an actual reliable quote where any Iranian official or leader has called for or threatened an "attack" or military strike on israel. To the contrary, israel has repeatedly threatened Iran with a military strike. Furthermore, Israel has and continues to pressure the U.S. to strike Iran as well. It's even more ironic and hypocritical because israel and the U.S. both have nuclear arenals and miltary forces that are exponentially more powerful/better equipped than the Iranian military. So even if Iran were to "threaten" israel, it has no means to enact an effective strike against the Israel. Furthermore, were Iran to attempt a strike, it would give israel and the U.S. the excuse that they're both salivating over to strike out at Iran. Israel has time and again threatened to use its nuclear arsenal and has used that capability - despite it's so-called "nuclear ambiguity" - to blackmale the U.S. into providing military/financial and diplomatic support for its actions. So, Sammy, you're argument is null and void. You recite the tired old mantra of the "Iranian call for the destruction of Israel," but it's meaningless. God help us all! Such warmongering will bring an end to us all.
