Iran is certainly no push over.
Looking at a strictly numbers game:
(Disclaimer: All of these numbers are from Wikipedia!)
Paramilitary: 11,000,000 (3,000,000 of which are apparently combat ready)
While such numbers don't mean all to much, lets look at some others.
Iran: 2009 estimate 74,196,000
Israel: 2010 estimate 7,602,400
Also keep in mind that a Iran has a lot of allies down there, whereas Israel only has the US (unless I'm mistaken), and are very unpopular.
If Israel does start some s%$ on their own, they will get steamrolled. If they get the US to help out, Russia might step in.
And then... then my friends the proverbial s%^ hits the fan and I hope you have an umbrella.
