Israel of course has the right to exist, those denying this are antisemites, this I agree. But in order to push its arguments on legitimacy Israel must get rid of its apartheid cover. Second, Israel is a strong country but not as much as it used to be. Its economy is deteriorating unreversably and unemployment is towering. It is still a wealthy county but on the edge. Militarily, well its hi-tech know-how is impressive but the proportion against countries like Iran is on decrease, give another 30 years the situation will be much worse. So I understand (but not support) why Israel wants to bomb Iran.
