Tel Aviv — In a sketch from a recent episode of the Israeli television satire “Wonderful Country,” a real-estate broker showing a property to a young couple boasts of a sea view but opens up the window to reveal a building façade.

“Ah, in June, none of this building row will be here,” the broker explains. “There’s that thing with Iran this summer. So everything works out, the bomb!”
