Throwing stones

Ben Caspit, a political columnist for the Israeli newspaper Maariv, summarizes what Netanyahu wants:
"For Iran to stop abusing its neighbors, stop threatening Israel, to start behaving like a normal country if it wants to have relationships like a normal country."
What struck me is that if you can easily switch the words "Iran" and "Israel" in that sentence.

I'm not saying that Israel and Iran are the same in this post. What I am trying to point out is that Israel, its leaders and its political commentators, threaten to attack Iran a whole lot more than Iranian public figures have threatened to attack Israel.
