Will Israel attack Iran?
By Ted Belman
This is the big issue of the day. The Iranian discusses the arguments for and against and highlights the following:
Lastly, but most importantly, the Israeli leadership faces serious problems, domestically.According to the Yediot Ahronoth’s report , “not a single state official or military official or even the president – supports an Israeli attack in Iran.” The realities inside Israel inform us of an unprecedented debate  about war against Iran. “This unprecedented debate more than anything else reflects profound distrust of the leadership of Benjamin Netanyahu by the Israeli military and defense establishment,” according to Yaron Ezrahi , a political scientist and former analyst in the Israeli military. There is a political crisis within Israel. When Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu formed a coalition government with the centrist Kadima Party, many experts saw it as a sign of unity within Israel’s political system and reasoned that Kadima was joining Likud out of support for an attack on Iran. They were wrong. Due to sharp differences on issues unrelated to Iran, the coalition did not last more than two months. It fell apart in July. More than anything else, the root of Israel’s indecision regarding war with Iran rests within its own political system. As long as the issue of unity in that country is not addressed, Israel will not be in a position to attack Iran.
Do you agree?
