Why is there such a huge demand that Israel attack Iran? From the very beginning Israel did not want to see sanctions applied to Iran and wanted to attack Iran. The best way to counter Iran would be for the West to do everything possible to ensure the ouster of the dictatorship in Syria and replace it with a Sunni government. Hezbollah may have 50,000 missiles targeted at Israel but once Iran is no longer welcome in Syria then Hezbollah will have no way to restock its arms. The United States should immediately offer Israel a defense treaty that states that any attack on Israel would be an attack on America. With Syria taken away from the tyrants in Tehran there will be no Arab State in the Middle East that is a friend of Iran. The first priority of America should be defanging Iran in Syria and having a peace treaty with Israel. Hamas will not have Syria as its ally and instead have an ally 1,000 miles away. Starting a war with Iran that will cause the deaths of thousands of people on both sides is foolhardy. There are better ways to bring the Iranian government to heel. Stop Iran in Syria and America should sign a defense treaty with Israel, and the sanctions should continue to be applied with increasing severity on Iran.
