Why is Iran so eager to have a missile that can reach Europe?

Likely there are several reasons;

It extends their strategic threat range so European countries will be less likely to either come to the aid of Israel or allow US staging at bases in case of war...

It puts many more overseas US staging and air bases within their threat ring...

They can strike directly at The Great Satan. This sort of missile can be fired from an ocean going ship well off the US coast and reach well into our heartland with a high altitude nuclear EMP strike, which can do catastrophic damage to this country.
