    I don't think any attack on Iran is likely, and a war with Hizbullah is unlikely to end differently than the last time and there will be less patience for it if Israel is the one that strikes first without pretext. However, assuming such attacks are planned, Netanyahoo's thinking will be that FIRST "defeating" Iran and Hizb would enhance Israel's position and THEN enable it to impose a settlement on the Palestinians. Not the other way around. That's assuming the attack goes as planned. Otherwise, Israel's negotiating position will be much worse.
