Well, i am not a politician, but i can answer several of your questions.
Why would Isreal have to attack?
Israeli leadership (and considerable part of country's population) feel that Iran is a direct threat to existence of the state. It does not necessary
mean that Israel must attack, i think that for now there are other options. But if those fail, i think that there could be made decision to strike
Iranian nuclear facilities, despite disastrous consequences for the whole region.
Did Iran threaten them?
Current Iranian leader made a lot of double-meaning declarations, concerning "regime", "removal" and other hidden threats. Not to mention
Iranian-controlled Hizballah on Israeli southern border whose leaders made those threats in hundreds.
Did Iran say they would nuke all Jews
What this got to do with the subject? There are Jews in Iran and i guess at least some of them live very good over there. Those Jews (and a lot of
other Jews on our tiny globe) are not threatened by Iranians. Israel is. I cannot answer it since i do not get the point.
Did Iran take someone from Isreal hostage?
Iranian-controlled organizations did. What it has to do with the issue though?
How bout telling Isreal, unless you are under attack, pre-emptive strikes against another sovereign nation is an act of war and is morally wrong.....
I guess that Israeli leaders are aware of this, no attack happened until now. But once again, closing eyes on potential danger and placing your
civilians in position where a large portion could be killed is not that moral also. Not to mention that Israel allegedly has nuclear potential and a
lot more people will die in nuclear exchange then in possible "conventional" war.
