some of you here on TB almost (/even directly) assume there is some natural link between iran & the pal. cause, something justifying iran in its actions & words vis a vis israel. but there's no link, there's nothing justifiable /normal about this. if iranians & the regime cared about the pals they could do what the arab countries do in general & they could support the saudi initiative - something they explicitely oppose. iran has no ethnic link to this conflict, the pals are sunnis & jerusalem has no real place in shiite islam. iranians haven't suffered any oppression /humiliation from the israelis, there are no unsettled accounts, no territorial claims. israel has just been picked by khomeyni to play a central part in his theological & political game, deciding to threaten & meddle w/israel as much as possible, through proxies etc. there isn't a bit of it that is acceptable. the iranian opposition is totally correct in pointing to this: "we've no business in lebanon /in gaza."
