Support for a military attack on Iran is, plain and simple, support for mutually assured destruction, not only for the State of Israel, but also for Israel’s Palestinian neighbors.
Any military escalation in an unstable Middle East is akin to throwing a lighted match onto a powder keg. The consequences cannot be contained by any conventional strategy, and regional diplomatic efforts will be set back decades.
