Targeting Iran Continues
Washington and Israel want unchallenged regional dominance.

Israel's likely coalition partners assure it. Spurious Iranian threats are hyped. What began years ago continues.
Washington and Israel want puppet leaders replacing independent ones in power. At issue is unchallenged regional dominance.
On January 27, Haaretz headlined "Netanyahu: Iran preparing for another Holocaust."
At Sunday's cabinet meeting, he told ministers that "holocaust denial is continued energetically by a central state in the world."
"Not by groups. Not by single individuals. Not by marginal elements."
"(B)y Iran, whose leaders on a daily basis and at the United Nations and any other platform deny that the Holocaust occurred, while at the same time they prepare what they believe will be an additional Holocaust: The destruction of the Jewish state."
He lied. He turned truth on its head. He hyped a nonexistent threat. He spuriously warned about Hezbollah getting Syrian chemical weapons.
"It is necessary to look at our surroundings, both at what is happening with Iran and its proxies, and what is happening in other arenas - lethal weaponry in Syria, which is steadily breaking up," he said."
"The Middle East is not awaiting for the outcome of election and is not stopping while (Israel's) government is assembled."
"We are facing many threats, from the most dangerous ones, which I have mentioned, to others and reality continues to evolve - in the east, in the north, in the south - the entire area is raging and we must prepared and strong and determined in the face of any possible development."
"For this reason, I will seek to form the widest and most stable government in order to respond, first and foremost, to every security threat."
Israel, of course, has no threats except ones it invents. Netanyahu prioritizes doing so. Fear is hyped. Pressing domestic concerns affecting Israelis most aren't discussed. At issue is whether regional war follows.
