Because we have only two parties in this country that have any real chance of getting power. One party has in its coalition, christian zionists, whose religion tells them to be fanatically pro-Isreal, and the other party has in its coalition Jewish zionists. These, while smaller in number then the christian zionists in the other party, are even more important in their funding of the party. This isn't going to change any time soon.
Because that country poses a real threat to our beloved Isreal.

Just to highlight your most egregious error: the problem with Iran has nothing to do with Israel. It has to do with the fact loose weapons of mass destruction may cause havoc anywhere in the developed or developing world.
