Iran is a natural non-Arab nation for Israel security in the Middle East region. Persians and Jews have common historical and cultural links. People of Israel know that below the surface of verbal bravado from the present President of Iran, Iran is not a foe of Israel. Iranian security may depend on presence of a viable Israel.

Iraq invasion of Iran was a reality check for Israel. Israel recognized that the same Arabic nations who supported Iraq against Iran will attack again non-Arab Israel. These findings are not surprising considering the integrated financial, technical, and armaments that were provided by many Arab countries to support Arabic Iraq against non-Arab Iranians and Kurds.
The United States interests in the region do not support attacking Iran. We must stop arming Israel and Arab nations, providing massive military aids (Egypt and Israel) hoping that all will be fine. Israel budget for armaments is greater than those of Iran. These arms will eventually kill Americans (USS Liberty attack) and people of the region.
The interests of the United States in the world dictate that we must open a frank unconditional dialogue with Iran recognizing the constructive contribution of the country to Afghanistan against Taliban, conflicts between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and al Qaeda in Iraq. Iran is not foe of Israel or Arabs.
US government reported that Israel has about 200 nuclear bombs. Why Israel feels threaten by Iran? Iran does not have a single nuclear bomb! Israel security is linked to stability in the region. Iran and Israel have a lot of common security interests.
Should our money from the United States be spent on the America’s hemisphere rather than in a region 7500 miles from home? Are we a victim of regional politics between Israel, Arabs and Iran?
