Israel may go it alone on Iran strike

Israel may go it alone on Iran strike | The Jewish Chronicle

While the American intelligence community is tearing itself apart in public over the question of whether Iran has accumulated sufficient uranium for a nuclear weapon, a quiet debate is going on behind the scenes in Israel.

Most Israeli intelligence analysts believe Iran is a few months away from the point of no return.

If pro-Israel president George Bush decided not to attack Iran, it is hard to see Barack Obama with his new policy of engaging Iran and the Muslim world ordering a strike. That leaves Israel with an awful dilemma — can it go it alone?

An attack on Iran will almost certainly cause a chain reaction in which proxies Hizbollah and Hamas will use Iranian-supplied weapons to engage the IDF on two fronts.

It's just odd this is getting so little UK coverage.
