Almost the entire hierarchy of Israel’s military and security establishment is concerned about a premature Israeli attack on Iran and the possible repercussion from such an action according to Lt. Gen. Amnon Lipkin-Shahak. Lipkin-Shahak told the The Independent there has been little analysis of how Iran would retaliate to such a strike and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may be strengthened if Israel were to preemptively attack. “It is quite clear that much if not all of the IDF [Israeli Defence Forces] leadership do not support military action at this point,” he said.
