Fears of an attack on Iran are putting off people who might otherwise be inclined to move to Israel, says Natan Sharansky.

Many would-be immigrants have already completed all of their paperwork, and even have found places to live in their dreamed-of homeland, Sharansky said. However, the Jewish Agency has received dozens of calls from the planned-for new olim (immigrants), cancelling the plans and saying their arrivals would be delayed until the threat of war has faded away.

Sharansky suggested that public discussion of the issue be toned down, adding that Israel´s deterrence power is affected by the chatter; echoing a sentiment expressed by numerous figures in the defense arena.
