No but the The Boy Who Cried Wolf analogy doesn’t work. Bibi might get a little hyper and goofy with cartoon bombs but Iran isn’t kidding.

There is no real reason to believe that if Iran got a nuke they’d use it on Israel. The only reason to think that is to think that everyone involved in the decision-making process for this act was fanatically suicidal.

It’s possible. It’s not likely. Iran most likely wants a nuke because having nukes gives you a better bargaining position, and because foreign attempts to destroy the nuke program help them maintain control.
