David Grossman writes in Haaretz (registration required) on the dangers of an Israeli strike against Iran's nuclear facilities:
[T]he question must be asked with greater urgency: Why aren't ministers and defense officials, people who are serving here and now, not those who have completed their terms, standing up and speaking their minds? These are people who in private express opposition to an attack; who believe that an Israeli attack will only defer Iran's nuclearization for a very short time. They fear the profound consequences such an attack would have for Israel's situation, for its very survival. Why aren't they standing up right now, when it is still possible, and saying: We will not be a party to this megalomaniacal vision, to this messianic-catastrophic worldview?
Is loyalty to the system more important than loyalty to the things they have devoted their lives to - Israel's security and future? An act that resonates like this would be the most meaningful thing they could do for Israel, for its security and its future.
