The United States is not obligated by any standing treaty between the United States and Israel to intercede in Israel's defense. To date, of the numerous wars that Israel has fought, the United States has only ever provided economic support or gifting weapons. No American Soldier has given his life in an Israeli War. If Iran declared war on Israel, the United States would probably act similarly and may itself declare war on Iran, but this will not be out of any written treaty, but purely based on American regional interests.

Iran's president will rail about the zionist Israel, claiming that they have no right to exist, and attempt to provoke other countries to respond. If countries do respond, it …only helps his cause and helps to highlight it. This cause only serves to further nationalist sentiment, and distract from domestic issues. He is all talk and little action. From the links below: "Well, Ahmadinejad is a ceremonial president. He is a little bit more active, has stronger links to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps than his predecessor, Mohammad Khatami, who, by the way -- the previous president of Iran -- has upbraided Ahmadinejad for his comments regarding Holocaust denial. So Ahmadinejad is -- he is not commander-in-chief of the armed forces. He can't order anybody to kill anybody. He can't launch a war. He can't launch missiles. Those powers are vested in the Supreme Jurisprudent, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Ahmadinejad can, you know, cut the ribbons and open bridges and things like that. So the American right's fascination with him is entirely misplaced, and it's because he's a quirky character and he has objectionable views, and so it's easy to use him to demonize Iran." JUAN COLE Trita Parsi is author of Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran and the United States. Our guest also, Ervand Abrahamian, Iran expert, Distinguished Professor at Baruch College. I wanted, Professor Abrahamian, to read from Juan Cole's piece, who says, talking about Ahmadinejad, "He has been depicted as a Hitler figure intent on killing Israeli Jews, even though he is not commander in chief of the Iranian armed forces, has never invaded any other country, denies he is an anti-Semite, has never called for any Israeli civilians to be killed, and allows Iran's 20,000 Jews to have representation in Parliament," that Khamenei is the one with the real power. Iran is the country that is in danger. It is not a danger to anyone.
Currently, there is no war between Iran and Israel. There are a number of proxy wars and assassinations which are discussed in the Related Question below.
Answer 1 Easily Israel. Israel defeated three countries in six days. Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria also contributed troops and arms. Just goes to… show how the IDF is superior to any country bordering or currently against Israel. This depends on what type of war is being fought. If an all-out war were fought including nuclear arms, then both would lose. Due to Iraq, Syria and Jordan being between these 2 countries, any war between them would probably drag these 3 countries into the war as well. Size: Iran with the bigger land area would have a slight advantage in terms of being attacked with nuclear arms. Unfortunately, it also means that they have more points along their borders to defend. Israel has less borders so could mass troops more easily, but this also makes them more vulnerable. Allies: Israel currently has the advantage of having allies with superior technology and more active political ambitions. Iran's allies are closer but weaker in power. Technology: Israel again holds the advantage. Including their overall air superiority, their well funded military is at an advantage. Iranian also has some Russian technology. Answer 2 Iran would win because more people and way better weapons and tech. Answer 3 I am far more cautious than Answerers 1 & 2. Iran and Israel have never had a proper military engagement before. It is likely that a war between the two parties would have much more to do with where the war took place (because of homefield advantage) and espionage activities. Iran has strong anti-aircraft missile batteries and a much more sophisticated military than any that Israel has faced. Additionally, a ground assault in Iran would be extremely hostile to Israel especially since they would only be able to arrive through parachuting or amphibious landings. Iran also has a rugged topography and numerous mountain ranges in comparison to the hills and sand dunes that the Israeli land forces are more familiar with. Israel would also present numerous difficulties for Iranian invasions. Israel has a general technological advantage as well as numerous anti-aircraft batteries. Also, any direct invasion of Israel would likely bring in the United States.
For the moment, Iran does not need to attack Israel. Its proxy armies like the Syrians, Hezbollah, and Hamas (all funded by and/or trained in Iran) are doing a sufficient job …attacking and fighting Israel. If Israel or the United States declares open war on Iran, however, Iran will retaliate by attacking Israel since its missiles can reach targets in that area.
Answer 1 ABSOLUTELY!! . Israel has the technology in advanced weapons and has the training and intelligence to beat Iran in a war. If we have see and learned from al…l of Israels past wars that they have always come out on top. All the Iranian president does is MOUTH OFF and threaten Israel every other chance he gets. An extreme lunatic like that needs to be addressed and defended against. I believe that Israel SHOULD AND WILL defend themselves and will come out the victor. Answer 2 I am far more cautious than Answer 1. Iran and Israel have never had a proper military engagement before. It is likely that a war between the two parties would have much more to do with where the war took place (because of homefield advantage) and espionage activities. Iran has strong anti-aircraft missile batteries and a much more sophisticated military than any that Israel has faced.

A UN nuclear watchdog report suggests Iran could be developing anuclear bomb, apparently confirming long-held suspicions in theWest. Tehran denies the claims, insisting that i…ts atomicintentions are peaceful. Israel (and the U.S.) may be makingpreparations to launch a military strike to destroy Iran's nuclearfacilities and set the Islamic nation's nuclear pursuits backyears. The prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran, led by its rabidlyanti-Semitic President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has denied theHolocaust and called for Israel to be "wiped off the map", isintolerable for the Jewish State. Iran's nuclear programconstitutes an "existential threat" for Israel that, if notmitigated by international diplomacy, Jerusalem may try to stopwith military force similar, but far larger in scope, to the 1981air strike on Iraq's Osirak nuclear reactor.
No. If Iran were to build 3-5 nuclear weapons they could, although they would undoubtedly be destroyed in the process by Israeli nukes and US nukes. However, there is no evide…nce that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons program and no evidence that Iran hates another state enough to see its 5,000 year old civilization destroyed in the process. In essence, Iran does not currently have the capability, and even if it had the capability the assertion that it would do so is dubious. (except for the incidental fact that its president has stated publicly "the zionist cancer must be wiped off the map" etc.)
Iran and Israel are strong . but Israel has the help of Amercia but right now America is very weak . Iran has the help of a lot of places like muslim armys like ben lodens arm…ys and russia if the war did happen amercia would 100% LOSE in the end israel does have boms in the end israel would have 1 attack on iran then iran would destroy israel.and america would go wild ans soon fall
If Iran did not use Nuclear weapon's then Israel would definitely win, it is the military power within the middle east, and has won all the Arab-Israeli wars so far. And Isr…ael has the support of the EU and the United States.
Iran was one of many nations in the region that contributed resources during the so-called "War of Independence" in 1948, but there has never been a direct war between Isr…ael and I ran.
Our Department of Clairvoyance is closed for the evening, andwithout them, I can't even tell when they'll be open again. But personally, it seems to me that Israel can't affo…rd to allowthat to happen.
Israel and Iran are two separate countries, with no overlap.
Iran is not at war with Israel, but on many occasions, hasannounced its intention to be, sooner or later.
Highly unlikely. The situation between Israel and Iran is significantly more volatile than the situation between Scotland and England. This is especially unlike since Scotlan…d will likely break away from the UK peacefully, and this might happen as soon as next year if the country votes for it.
As surprising as it may seem, Israel and Iran have never actually gone to war.
Iran and Israel have never actually gone to war. The two countries have fought a long, drawn-out proxy war for the last three decades, but never a direct conflict. You are li…kely asking about the Six Day War, but what is worth noting is that the only country that Israel attacked was Egypt. Then Syria and Jordan declared war on Israel, which prompted an Israeli response.
