    I'm afraid that despite all the Hasbara by Israel and its foreign allies such as Fox News, like most people around the world, I don't see Iran as a huge threat to me and family. Ahmedinejad's clearly a bit of a nut, but he doesn't even really run the show in Iran. The Iranian Mullahs by contrast seem to be quite careful and conservative in a lot of the moves they make. I'd rather they didn't have nukes, but it's not high on my list of perceived world threats. By contrast, I see the on-going conflict between Isarel and the Pals asa key strategic threat in a highly strategic area for Europen, one that poisons links between the west and the Middle East,and one that has the potential to explode into serious war at any time and perhaps even World War 3 eventually. If Israel started getting serious aboit pulling out of the West Bank and freeing the Pals, then I would support getting serious with Iran about nukes. Until Israel does that, I, and loads and loads of other people, don't really care about Iranian nukes, and all the Hasbara in the world ain't gonna change that.
