Israel Under Attack

Today Seth's parents (Larry and Carol) sat us down to talk to us about what we should do if Iran attacks Israel with nuclear weapons. At first, Seth and I both thought it was a ridiculous conversation to have. I mean, Iran wouldn't attack Israel? Come oooon.
But as we talked about it, I realized that we are in the Middle East, we are in Israel surrounded by countries that want nothing more than to wipe us off the map. And, if Iran had the ability to do it, there is a chance, no matter how small, that it would act.
The trouble is, I don't know what I would do: do I find the fastest way to leave the country? I have no army training and would be of no use. Israel doesn't need extra people to care for when it is in the middle of a war? Don't we want Israelis and Jews to remain who will be able to populate Israel once the fighting stops? People that are not hurt by the nuclear warfare?
But, as Seth's dad pointed out, what about moral support? How would those Israelis who stay behind to fight feel if all those people who claim they love Israel so much get up and leave? Israel is a home for all Jews, and it's the only home we have. Am I going to abandon my home when the going gets rough?
