Geographical Location:

Iran is located at the center of Eurasia with almost all the Muslim countries in its surroundings. Its central location in Eurasia and proximity to the Strait of Hormuz give it significant geostrategic importance. The Strait of Hormuz is one of the most important strategic locations for International trade. Nearly all of the oil-producing countries in the middle east use this strait for international trade. Iran’s use of its territorial advantages in the Strait of Hormuz is, therefore, more effective as a threat than if a complete or partial closure of the Strait is actually executed.

only 4 Muslim countries formally accepted Israel

Israel is trying hard to convince more countries to accept it and start foreign relations with it. although only 4 Muslim countries formally accepted Israel till now, there are others that are willing to accept but are not able to face the backlash from other Muslim countries.
