Over the weekend, Iran launched an attack on Israel in retaliation for an Israeli strike in Syria that killed a top Iranian general. The Islamic Republic fired an aerial assault of saw drones, along with cruise and ballistic missiles at Israel — almost all of which were intercepted.

On Monday night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra examined this dangerous geopolitical moment and what outlined what each side was hoping to achieve.

Although the Iranian assault was telegraphed and inflicted relatively minimal damage, this let all of the players involved — Iran, Israel, other regional powers and the United States — declare victory in their own way, Ezra said:

These are serious people who are saying this. The war looks like a made-for-TV stitch up, like that old movie with Dustin Hoffman called “Wag The Dog”, do you remember that?

In a way, everyone gets a (public relations) win here.

Iran can look tough to its own people and its supporters. Israel can get a military victory, a dramatic ratio of striking down those weapons systems — it can feel great about it. Biden can get the upper hand on Israel and try to stop it from finishing off Iran or to finish of Hamas in the southern Gaza strip.

But the issue wasn't limited to the Middle East.

Here in Canada, crowds cheered as news of Iran's attack on Israel was underway. In Calgary, one man even held up a picture of Iran's supreme leader while making a Nazi salute.

The imminent problem at home, according to Ezra, is an issue off immigration: 

I think the number one thing we have to do is to fix immigration. For housing reasons, for social services reasons, for traffic reasons, for inflation reasons — yeah, yeah. I hate to say it, but also, I've noticed most of the people calling for terrorism in our streets are recent immigrants who were clearly not vetted for extremism.

Israel has its problems but don't think we don't have them, too.
