“What we are observing right now is maybe the eruption of a volcano that has been seething for decades.

“Israel’s “Iron Dome” air defense system has impressively proven capable to defend the country from external attacks, thus unless Iran steps up military capacities, no imminent threat of missiles actually reaching Israeli territory seems realistic. A likely effect, however, will be the rallying around the flag phenomenon both in Iran and Israel where both governments have faced fierce opposition and resistance from large shares of their populations. It seems expectable that internal opposition will lose further stakes in the ongoing escalation.”
