Hesbollah is not an existential threat to Israel. They are of course unpleasant, they inflict some pain from time to time, but Israel can deal with them. Israel has the military ability to finish Hesbollah in a matter of a few days. They don't do it for various political reasons, but they can. Iran getting a nuclear bomb is an existential threat to Israel. Hesbollah cannot finish Israel or even inflict serious damage. Iran with a nuclear bomb can.

Of course Israel would rather see Iran pressured into stopping the support of terrorism worldwide, nuclear program or not, but halting Iran's nuclear program is by far Israel's highest priority.






Netanyahu has a history of talking about how Iran is going to get the bomb in a way that conflicts with Mossad's intelligence (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/feb/23/leaked-spy-cables-netanyahu-iran-bomb-mossad).
Israeli poltician lie about the thread posed by Iran supposedly persuing a nuclear bomb.

It's a vote-winner inside Israel and it reduces Iran geopolitic power.

It's not any different than concerns about Israeli concerns about Iraq developing ABC weapons.
