    This is about Iran in the ME. The center of gravity of geopolitical sphere has shifted to the East of the Middle East. Turkey, Iran and Iraq with the huge markets of younger consumers who are tech savvy and eager to consume. Add to that vast amounts of energy and water, the two most important commodities ever. Israel has turned into a real burden on her friends and foe. Israel has a small population and politically and socially completely isolated in the area. That is why Iran with its carefully chosen and kept allies, such as Lebanon, Syria and Iraq to a large extent, and soon the "AFPAK" will join that two. The US is deeply involved in ALL of this therefore the US is going to yank Israel's chain if Israel does one of its silly "bombing" wet dreams. It's all about Iran, not the man. It behooves Israel to start looking at Iran like the girl-next-door.
