If Israeli jets are given the order to bomb Iran's nuclear programme, thousands of rockets could be fired in revenge. Nick Meo meets people fearful of the consequences of an airstrike - and terrified of the possible alternative.
The last time Hezbollah attacked Israel, a rocket exploded next to Adam Bloom's house while his wife was in the shower.
"She was hysterical," he said. Afterwards it took hours to coax her and their two terrified young daughters out of the bomb shelter where they fled.
"Hezbollah had about 10,000 rockets then but they are supposed to have more like 50,000 now, so how many will be fired at us if they start again?" said Mr Bloom, 49.
The family, whose kibbutz is 30 miles south of the Lebanon border, had thought they were safely out of range in 2006. When rockets started landing they jumped in the car and headed south with 350,000 other Israelis, to spend weeks as refugees in their own country.
This time it is not only the north that is being prepared for a new conflict, one that Israelis fear could be much worse than anything since 1973. The trigger would be the long-threatened Israeli airstrike on Iran's nuclear programme.

Better for public relations.
The best thing Israelis can do to ensure their security would be to tell their brethren here in the US, that they must work for the defeat of Baraq Hussein 0bama!
Israel is superior and armed.
With Arab Spring, a resurgent anti Semitic European socialism and America abandoning Israel, everything is short term. There is no long term.
We Americans should be man enough to do what our fathers did.
Denazification, cumulative review. Report, 1 April 1947-30 April 1948.
Could be worse. Imagine a world without Big Bird. /sarc
When people want to re establish a homeland that they left over 1700 years ago amongst the most intolerant population practicing a fanatical religion, one must be prepared for war in every generation till either the settlers win or the fanatics are all dead. There is a lesson on how to avoid trouble one can learn from this.
Vaporization in a millisecond just might work. Eventually it will happen.
Democrats don't get it - Iran won't just hit Israel - they'll hit us here too.
Future events have a way of forecasting a shadow and the description of events, perhaps in a some what different form as described in the Ezekiel Option just may come to pass. Who is to say that prophesy was only bequeathed upon the ancient ones?
Scorched earth response if the enemy targets civilians.
War is hell.
