The most crucial factor about the war front is that Israel has no
capacity to destroy the Iranian nuclear programme on its own.
Technically it cannot do that without US active involvement, and
politically it'd be suicidal for it to attempt such an attack. None of
this changes in the slightest now: if Netanyahu had retained his
coalition as before, or had gone for new elections as planned, he
would have been in the same position. In terms of Israeli internal
party politics it's a big change, but as far as Iran and the
Palestinians are concerned everything stays the same.
