The current Iranian government’s mortal enemy is the concept of democracy. They need to be able to paint Israel as an existential threat and unify / repress the ordinary citizens of Iran according to the whims / desires of the elites. The average Iranian citizen wants nothing to do with this.

Netanyahu will play the corresponding role on the Israeli side. How he managed to become prime minister again, with his track record and all the corruption charges… I’ll never know.

Netanyahu in charge of Israel strengthens the Iranian regime, and therefore, Putin’s hand as well.
