It is in the interests of both Iran and Israel to pretend that Iran is building nuke weapons because of Israel. Iran benefits because it is in excuse that makes it harder for the Sunni Moslem world to fight Iran nuclearization, even though the Iran nukes are primarily aimed against Pakistan and other radical Sunni states. Israel benefits because it reaps huge political benefits amongs "joe-six pack" americans, who hate and fear Iran and are pro-Israel only because they hate Israel's enemies, particularly Iran. Even Russia has more to fear from Iran nuke weapons than Israel does. Anyone who thinks that Iran really cares about the interests of the palestinian people is an idiot.
