Under the 'periphery doctrine', Israel tried to find friends in countries to the outside of the enemy countries which surround it. These have included Turkey, Ethiopia and Iran. Why, then, is Israel encouraging the Americans to make Iran the next victim of the 'war on terrorism'? Remember that Iran is being blamed as the source of the weapons on the Karine A, and is being accused by the Americans of trying to destabilize Afghanistan. (Also remember that, unlike President Bush, President Khatami was actually democratically elected!)
