Given Israel's major lobbying effort in the US and abroad to isolate Iran, then the international community should and will demand that Israel abide by international law and agree to withdraw from settlements. According to Israel, Iran poses an existential threat to it, so no country should be more pleased with and benefit from these developments. The world has been telling Israel for decades that settlements on occupied lands are illegal but this has fallen on deaf ears in Israel (and the US). The US (with help of the Israel lobby) has pushed the Iran issue for months and barely has consensus with other world powers. My bet is that in the long run Israel loses and Iran wins.
