While debating a unilateral strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, Israeli decision-makers must take Iranian citizens into account. Although there is widespread government dissent and resistance in Iran, an Israeli strike could force the Iranian people to “rally ‘round the flag” and support their otherwise hated regime. 

An Israeli attack turned into an Iranian rallying cry would be an ideal scenario for the Iran's rouge regime.
