How naive to say that attacking horrible Iran will inflame the whole Middle East. For starters, the Saudis and many other Sunni nations will be dancing the streets to see their hated foe Shiite Iran dealt with, so you're already all wet. Many in Iran will also be glad to be rid of the horrible ayatollah-run regime that stones women. Many nations around the world will be overjoyed to see Iran's nuclear ambitions quashed. Only Iran's terrorist puppets such as Hezbollah will be inflamed, as if anybody but you care, since you're out to destroy the Jewish state of Israel like they are, if not correct me. Maybe you're not native just attempting to score a propaganda V for the Palestinians. Do they pay you for it?

Study Jerusalem's history back 3,000 years free with the Historyscoper to see why Jews not Arabs have the true right to it, regardless of holy books, the U.N., or even alleged crimes of its govt., since the right is with the Jewish people itself, or anybody they accept as Jewish. So-called Palestinian Muslim Arabs need to think about resettling in some of the vast Arab lands far away from poor outnumbered surrounded Israel, and start leaving it alone.
