Israel does not want this. Due to the unending and counterproductive loyalty shown by the US to Israel, Israel thinks it can solve everything militarily. The logical conclusion of such a policy in this part of the world is either genocide or the 'Somalization' of Gaza or just as likely both.

Israel is a bigger danger to world peace than Iran for this very reason.
