Jews don't need an enemy to keep existing, but okay. That's like saying blacks need whites to keep existing, or vice versa.

I’m talking about the governments.

I think it would be hard to argue that foreign policy isn’t the wedge issue that keeps the Israeli right wing in power.

It really isn't. In terms of foreign policy, Israel's center-left governments were consistently better performing, and that includes Iran as a threat. In case you're not following, Israel's right wing parties' PR is dominantly focused on internal security, with 2nd place being playing on the feelings of the poor.

Iran is a serious threat to Israel, not a boogeyman. Hence every party takes a strong stance vs it.
