    The CIA wrote a report back in the 50's that the Soviets were running out of oil [Soviet production was declining because their equipment was crap-not a lack of oil]. Their conclusion was that the Soviets would try to take over Iran- so we supported whomever was agianst the soviets.

    I recall the fear and paranoia of this scenario in the 70's as well. The idea of the godless communists taking Iran and feeding their atheist army of death was pounded into our collective heads. That was the big scary bogeyman the US used to justify spending trillions on war toys and backing rightwing dictatorships and the Palahvi monarchy. Didn't work. Backing Islamofascists in Afghanistan didn't work either.

    I think (but don't know) that Israel is an embarrassing shame to all Muslims because Muslims are supposed to come together and rally to the defense of all other Muslims when the other Muslims are being wrongly attacked and made to suffer. The Muslims have failed to defend the Palestinians from a non-Muslim criminal aggressor. Why are muslims so weak, technonlogically backward and disunified that they are uncapable of defending Palestine? Shamefull! Disgrace! Islam must be a failure.

    Yes. Islam is a failure, and a lie like all religions. Arabs are kept poor and uneducated by Arab regimes that use Israel as a reason for being undemocratic and backward, thus enriching the leaders of these countries.

    Why does Iran hate Israel?

    I think the better question would be: "Why does most of the world hate Israel".

    True. The Arab World is chock full of despots, sheiks and religious miltants ruling an array of countries from the pro-US pro-Israel Gulf States to Saudi Arabia to the puppet state of Jordan and back to Syria. All these countries must have an enemy to unite against to divert attention away from their own despotic regimes. Israel aids in every way by proving to be the biggest terrorist threat in the entire region.

    I always find the reference to "Muslims sticking up for their brothers" particularly amusing. Especially when cosidering the upcoming anniversary of black Tuesday, when Jordon most likely slaughtered more Palestinians that Israel ever has (possibly as many as 50000) in September 1970. The doors to Muslim countries has always been closed when it comes to Palestinians.

    I suspect the government of Iran really does not hate Israel, but simply take advantage of an excellent opportunity. Its people have a blind hatred for Jews, and this is an fantastic distraction for its citizens. Especially when a nations extremely young population is beginning to desire greater freedom, and has no memory of the "Revolution".

    It is easy to create an outside enemy, and to focus attention there, when your government is always precariously holding control of its people. Iran wants nothing more than the continuing suffering of the Palestinian people.

    I just registered to answer this question. Why do make mistake between politicion and people? That is Mulla's regim that hate you. In the other hand people Love Israel. It might be because of historical reson that cyrus the great liberated jewish people in the captivity of Babylon and he Loved them and gave them a place in his empire which is Israel now(After hundres of years they bought some land around that area which is Israeil again). And There is a big road in capital city of Israel called Cyrus(korosh) the great and it makes people more interested.
    But I love Israel because they always protect each other and they made a country as developed as Europe in the middle of some undeveloped countries.
    I know hundres of Iranian that hate palestinan people because accourding to history this land belongs to Israel.
    You shoul now the regim is stupid and we are with you.

    For one, Israel is reported to have many nuclear weapons provided by the US. Israel itself maintains the policy of nuclear ambiguity -> meaning they won't confirm or deny they have these weapons.

    While I don't wish to take any sides in this argument, I will say that it is highly hypocritical to own nuclear weapons while arguing a neighboring country should not be allowed to advance nuclear studies.

    Furthermore, recent events in Libya have solidfied the argument FOR nuclear weapons as a deterent agains Western aggression from the point of view of these countries. Gaddafi, remember, gave up his nuclear and biological programs in exchange for promises of support from Western countries. These promises ring hollow now that Gaddafi is a corpse. Do you think Iran will trust ANYTHING the US/Israel states?

    When the neighboring country has often declared that they want to wipe you from the face of the earth, I think it is highly realistic.

    Aw, you are refering to the 2005 comments by the President of Iran who supposedly said Israel must be "wiped out".

    There is actually controversy regarding those statements because this is considered by many to be a TRANSLATION error because in the Persian language there is no idoim for "wiping out" (i.e. oblierate completely).

    What Ahmadinejad was refering to specifically, as he clarifies, is that the current Israeli regime should collapse and be replaced by one representing the people living in the region (both Jews and Palestinians). He did not say "DEATH TO ALL JEWS" as many seem to claim.

    "Asked if he objected to the government of Israel or Jewish people, he said that "creating an objection against the Zionists doesn't mean that there are objections against the Jewish". He added that Jews lived in Iran and were represented in the country's parliament."
    Iran leader plays down war talk

    "If they [the Palestinians] want to keep the Zionists, they can stay ... Whatever the people decide, we will respect it. I mean, it's very much in correspondence with our proposal to allow Palestinian people to decide through free referendums"
    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: OK, we may have a few gays but we still hate Israel
