Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the only way the Israeli could do it is from their submarines. But it is ubknown if they can.

if they did it with conventional charges, the damage would probably be rather minimal.

If they use nukes, hell will break lose in the middle -east and it's far from sure that even such a strike would have the intentional effect, besides killing a lot of people.

At the same time the Israeli would expose themselves of being nuked in the future. The problem with Israel is it's size. Only 5-10 nukes even with a relative low yield and the country virtually ceases to exist, since 75% of the population is concentrated in 3 cities. The same amount of nukes on Iran would not have the same effect, even if the country would be badly hurt.
