Well, I don’t want to see Iran attacked. The Iranians are a complex, sophisticated and ancient nation. I wonder if the average person in the streets of Tehran or Tabriz really wants to see Israel wiped off the map – as their leaders imply it should be.

Humiliating one side or the other won’t resolve this. As you say, the Iranians have been victims of aggression more often lately than the instigators (not sure about thousands of years…!) and feel as if they’re surrounded by enemies. But I can definitely understand why the Israelis are very worried too.
