(ANTIWAR.COM) — Israel has spent decades talking up the potential for a war against Iran, and invested heavily in lobbying the US to be hostile toward Iran. Recent talk of the US attacking Iran and starting such a war has Israeli hawks, unsurprisingly, crossing their fingers.
Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz says the country is continue to encourage Trump to “press ahead” against Iran, but is also concerned Iran might “accidentally” stumble out of a limited war into a full “military conflagration.”
Since Israel will definitely be involved in that war, Katz says that Israel “continues to devote itself to building up its military might” for the event that they are drawn into a US-Iran War, a war that to be clear Israel has been trying to con the US into starting for many years.
European nations are still trying to prevent such a war, and trying to save the P5+1 nuclear deal, which the US has withdrawn from, and which Israel has opposed from the start. Iranian officials express hope for such a deal, so long as the Europeans can ensure sanctions relief.
