Well, we were alone in 1967 (Six Day War), we were isolated in the international arena and threatened by the combined forces of 8 Arab countries which declared their goal as the destruction of Israel.

Yet, we all know what happened in June, 1967 within 6 days...

So, there is nothing new under the sun.

I only hope that your government will show more concern for your country's security than for getting a few more bucks from Washington. Because something tells me that the two are not going to be compatible in the near future.

Actually, remember that Russia was filling planes with troops, so, we did too.

we ALMOST got involved on your side! :)

But you guys did make a lot of Marines angry in Beirut, we wanted to help you, but we had orders, professional soldiers should have behaved better.

I believe that Israel will and should do whatever is necessary (including incinerating a sizable part of Iran's population) to protect itself. Our country was a hair trigger away from doing the same thing to the Soviet Union for more than forty years.

One irony of all this is that there isn't any real basis for bad relations between the Iranian people and Israel and that, before he was eased out with Jimmy Carter's help, the Shah and his country were in a de facto alliance with the Jewish state.

This irrational death wish (and if they do anything along the lines of what is being threatened, they and a few million of their people will die) just confirms that the Mullahs are clinically insane. For their own survival, the Iranian people must rise up.
