Yeah this is gonna end well. Iran's retaliation MIGHT be bluff, so it gives the Israeli government even more ``reasons`` to bomb Iran.

Is Hezbollah just a figment of our imagination? I don't think so. Bombing Iran means war with Hezbollah and probably Hamas. Maybe even Syria/Egypt worst case.

Israeli officials think Iran retaliation threat is a bluff

New York Times says some officials think estimates that a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities would cause catastrophe are 'partly a bluff,' and that this is accepted at top government levels.

Citing a number of officials and reports, the New York Times said that estimates that a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities “would set off a catastrophic series of events” is considered by some to be “partly a bluff,” and that these estimates are accepted at the top levels of the Israeli government.

“I’m not saying Iran will not react. But it will be nothing like London during World War Two,” the New York Times reported the official as saying, citing an internal report.

Well the IDF chief said that in the event of a new war, Israel would be hit by 15 000+ missiles, mainly from Hezbollah. Iranian missiles are quite a joke.

The newspaper also said that an upcoming paper by Tel Aviv University’s National Center for Security Studies claims that Iran’s threats to close the Strait of Hormuz are also “a bluff.”

A bluff... if attacked, they will do it since they will have nothing to lose. So it's not a bluff.

The newspaper also cites a paper recently published by the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies arguing that Israeli fears of Iranian missiles are exaggerated, as these would not be able to cause significant physical damage.

And this is exactly why Russia ain't believing the whole NATO BS about the missile shield being aimed at Iran. Because it's not.

'Senior IDF officer told cabinet Israel cannot stop Iran's nuclear program'

Time Magazine quotes Israeli defense official as saying that Israel can only delay Tehran's nuclear program by several months, at most a year.

So unless the US attacks with B-2s against bunkers and wipes out the Iranian army/navy/air force, forget it.

Well it was well known that Iranian fighters were in Syria.

And it was kind of obvious that it was the resistance that had kidnapped them...
