Perhaps greater numbers will begin expressing themselves publicly.

A February Israeli Democracy Institute (IDI) survey showed most Israelis oppose war. Less than a third of Israeli Jews and Arabs support it. The study's part of IDI's Peace Index series.

A January Jerusalem Report survey showed Israelis mostly fear themselves. Around 60% said their greatest future fear's internal. About 40% worry most about destruction from an outside enemy.

Before Israel's 1948 creation, minority Jews and majority Arabs coexisted peacefully in Palestine. After Israel's War of Independence, that all changed, and more than ever now under Israel's most extremist ever prime minister and Knesset.

They govern more like sociopaths, than leaders. They deplore peace and crave violence. Others also did before them, short of threatening the entire region with potential annihilation if Netanyahu attacks Iran.

Whether his game's more bluster than bombs away isn't known. What's clear is that Israel and Washington both intend regime change by any means, including war. Imagine the potential catastrophe if they follow through and wage one, especially with nuclear weapons.

Doing so means all bets are off. The worst of all outcomes may follow. Regional war may go global. The possibility should rally all Israelis against it. They sit atop a potential time bomb.
