Iran's Plot will Backfire

This Rabbi (Rebbe of Mishkoltz) presents an interesting proposition why not to attack Iran. He contends unity among Jews, a spiritual dynamic, will perforce lead to a physical consequence - the elimination of the current Haman. The Persian terrorist, like his predecessor, succeeds in uniting Jews because of the evil he wants to perpetrate, and the result will therefore backfire. I enjoy the confidence this Rav projects in God and in Jewry.

But because he made no mention of the explicit law in Shulchan Aruch, Hilchot Shabbat (329), regarding foreigners at the borders who threaten, an obvious issue that must be taken into account, his position is unsettling if not unclear.
