    The war with Iran is probably inevitable. But in my opinion, it would be wise for Israel to hold for now and launch offensive -- but total and sweaping one, which doesn't take into consideration civilian casualties -- only when there's no alternative. Right now, there is a good hope. Yes, we in Israel know the Iranian people. We know, that they don't deserve this psychopat to rule Iranians. And we hope, that Iranians will soon overthrow the regime of fanatical clerics. Iranians are educated people with long political tradition and with the middle class which hates Ahmadinejad and mad ayatollas. They will overthrow the regime sooner or later. The only problem is that if they don't do it soon, than Israel will destroy Iran. If Cyrus doesn't emerge any time soon, than Alexander will come. Iranian people should know and understand it. We have not much time and they have not much time.
