    One of the problems with attacking Iran which nobody ever seems to take on board is the retaliation that will naturally follow. Iran has ballistic missiles that can hit Israel. hat Happens if they target Dimona? Syria and Hezbollah will almost certainly join in and Israel will be under attack from at least 3 different fronts. Please do not be nieve enough to rely on Israeli technology to see the enemies off as technology is insignificant as we have seen with the US fighting in Afghanistan. Although Iran is not very popular in the Middle East there is one state that is more unpopular which is Israel and world sympathy will turn into world condemnation. Israel would not be able to undertake this attack without American approval, the reasons being are airspace where Israel would have to fly over Iraq to get to Iran and that could not be done without US approval. All it will likely do is just give militant Islam an excuse to hate Israel more than they already do and recruit even more angry people. Does anyone actually believe that if Iran went nuclear they would dare target Israel? This is actually signing your own countries death warrant when you attack a country with up to 200 nukes and would completely legitimise Israeli nuclear destruction of Iran.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
