    How about that! Arab states that have no diplomatic relations with Israel will safer because there is an Israel.

    Shia Irianians are certainly looking to continue the expansion they have made into Lebnanon.

    And we know what Shia and Sunni do to each other on their most holy of days don't we?

    Iran is Shia. Hamas is Sunni.

    Propaganda makes no sense.

    It's not propaganda. Sunni and Shia delight in killing each other on their holiest days. That is when no one else is around to kill.

    Well you could hardly expect them not to create defence given the prolonged huffing and puffing there has been to destroy Iran's 'maybe' nuclear weapons ability

    Iran 'will not make longer-range missiles as Israel is already in reach' | World news | The Guardian

    Any country would make sure it is defended when it has been subject to the constant threat of bombing Iran has been subject to.

    Missile defense doesn't work.
