Israeli Peace Activists Demonstrate Against Bombing Iran

In January, The New York Times Magazine published an article, "Will Israel Attack Iran?," which made clear the fact that Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Barak do not enjoy monolithic support among Israel's security establishment regarding a potential attack on Iran. The online magazine +972, which offers "independent journalism from Israel and Palestine," has provided ongoing coverage of the issue, including "important questions and answers" and a recent poll finding that most Israelis oppose a strike on Iran. +972, whose name derives from the telephone code shared by Israel and Palestine, also covered the Israeli Disarmament Movement's protest against bombing Iran; the demonstration took place on August 6th, the 67th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima.

These people display refreshing sensibility. An attack on Iran by Israel could end any hope of peace for the forseable future - if there is any hope at all. I think it might also drive a wedge in the, up until now, solid relationship between Israel and the United States.

I also think it would put Israel in tremendous danger and do little to halt Iran's nuclear plans.
