|I ask this becoz apart from the usual 'hate infidels' thinking behind the Khomeni revolution, the Israelis supported the Shia Muslim factions in Lebanon during the 1980s. The Shia and Israelis had a common enemy in the PLO who had turned Lebanon into their playground of pillage, looting and terrorist raids. So when the IDF invaded and cleaned out the PLO's clock, many Shia welcomed the Israelis as brothers.
Yet, Iran's creation the Hizbollah would be able to gather enough power to make the IDF presence in south Lebanon unteneble and now Iran makes a lot of threats about nuking Israel. Why, when Iran's coreligionists in Lebanon benefitted from Israel's attack on the PLO there????
