In the case of a Syrian civil war, Iran is likely to do its utmost to bleed Israel diplomatically, economically and militarily by trying to draw it into a long guerrilla war in Syria.
The question which we in Israel must ask ourselves is this: are we ready to meet this threat?
My latest article tries to answer this question.
I took part in this lively panel on Iran and Israel last week at the LSE in London. It was sponsored by BBC Arabic and the Front Line Club.
Really enjoyed it.
The other panellists were former TIME correspondent in Iran Azadeh Moaveni, Scott Petersen of The Christian Science Monitor and Abdel Bari Atwan of the Quds Al Arabi newspaper.
Jon Snow of Channel 4 chaired the panel.

What Iran could not achieve in Gaza, Netanyahu achieved for the Iranian regime with his latest plans for new settlement homes in East Jerusalem and the West Bank: diplomatic crisis in relations between top EU countries and Israel.
