it's a global interest that Iran not develop nuclear weapons as that would threaten the region's already vulnerable situation. Israel has to rely on the United States and Europe for matters of security, especially concerning Iran. President Ahmadinejad implies that Israel 's Zionism is the settlement expansion unto Palestinian land, however his denial of the Holocaust and questioning Jewish "roots" in the Holy Land rhetoric does not exonerate him or his government from ulterior motives. So Israelis have a legitimate right to be very nervous from this development because either way it's not good. Nevertheless, I sure Israelis have a preference that through diplomatic pressures, Iran would change its path towards Israel and the West.
