As my Grandma always said, "Talk is cheap". Many countries threaten each other, but so what. Of course Israel has a right to defend herself. Defense is one thing, attacking another country is another. Iran has not directly attacked you. I am all for the U.S. defending their allies but I am not willing to defend a preemptive strike by Israel. If Israel decides to strike than Israel solely accepts that responsibility. The Jewish people have a right to their country but encroaching on another country is not O.K.
