with all due respect to your stated opinion, may i remind you that the same "hysteria" you are reffering to DID NOT MATERIALIZE during and preceeding ww2 and hitler's rise to power and mayhem on the world and civilization as we know it.
it behooves me to tell you that, should the world have shown much more of the "hysteria" you are talking about, 6 million jews and millions of other non jewish innocent people would not have perished in this most dastardly manner by hitler's hand and his maniacal decision as well as his maniacal and hysterical need to be the world dominant, the "new order" in europe and beyond and the new "mullah".
since history does indeed repeat itself and since there has never been a lack of hitler, ahmadinejad, chavez, stalin, etc...cropping up every century or so, the "hysteria" you are reffering to, is very much in order and very much needed so that we may never again witness or bear responsibility for our silence and poor judgment in how to deal with such monsters.
contrary to what you think, iran and ahmadinejad, do not need security since israel has never attacked or challenged iran or its leadership. for this they are thanked by iran with comments like zionism is a corpse and we should wipe israel and its regime from the map.
until ahmadinejad came to power, the iran regime has never called for israel's demize, never hosted holocaust denial conferences, never threatened israel and jews around the world and has never vigurously used proxies to attack, kidnap and create mayhem on israel's borders.
that has changed with ahmadinejad's acention to power and his megalomaniac tendencies and desires based on his views of religion and theocracy.
every century the world witnesses a person who is given power in a country and who takes this power and abuses it either via rhetoric, via proxies, via nuclear lying and trickery, etc... using his power to create mayhem, instability and danger not only to his country, but to others close to it.
the difference between ahmadinejad and other leaders is that he's mostly similar to a little hitler of the 21st century, where his people, their wellbeing, their economy and their education and stability is secondary to his megalomaniac desires and its consequences.
iranians are peace loving people and do like israelis, believe it or not. most respect israel and have no problem with it whatsoever. it is their leaders that do. not only that, but iranians that are usually smart and free spirited people are presently ruled by a little hitler that robs them of the opportunity to be included in the coalition of the civilized nations of the world and are taking the iranian nation on a path of isolation and hate. these leaders, like hitler, have created a fear police in iran, a religious ss, if you will, that is very much against the iranian national spirit and desire. people there are HELPLESS! JOBLESS, HUNGRY, NOT FREE, SUBJUGATED, HARRASSED, AND ABOVE ALL YOUNG AND DISSOLUSIONED.
contrary to what this regime believes, iranians do care nothing about the "so called bogus space acheivements of their regime". they want jobs, they want to eat, they want to dress the way they desire, they want free press, they want a life with free thinking, freedom of speech and better economy. iran is in shambles economically. they can't feed their people and can't give them jobs.
the glory of a nation, contrary to what ahmadinejad believes, doesn't lie in missiles, nuclear war heads and threats on other nations. it lies in a great weconomy, a great gnp, a great employment opportunity and a great desire to contribute medically, technologically and researchwise in the world community. when all the rhetoric and energy of a nation leans towards megalomaniac tendencies and their desire to be "on top" and the top gun in the region, you know their intentions are not peaceful and do not spell a stable future in the region.
