Dialogue is preferable

Yet in examining its options, Israel cannot ensure that an attack would thwart Iran's nuclear program. The prime minister expressed satisfaction about the preparations for a possible military operation against Iran, but Israelis are allowed to be highly concerned about such a plan. Does the plan take into account the many civilians who would be killed by an Iranian counterattack? Does Israel know what and where to attack? Israel's two relatively small wars in the last three years are not a guarantee for success if it attacks Iran. Even if it is possible to have faith in its military capabilities, Israel's home front has clearly become the real arbiter of victory or defeat
