Israel’s factious coalition looks wobbly on Iran
Besides US opposition, the state of Israel’s government makes an attack on Iran unlikely.
Two credible new estimates have concluded that we do not have months or years before Iran has the capability to produce nuclear weapons, but rather weeks.
If these estimates are correct, Israel must make an immediate decision whether or not to take military action against Iran to delay its nuclear progress. Unfortunately, that decision will have to be made under very poor conditions:
Any attack would be made not only without the participation or even the acquiescence of Washington, but against its violent opposition, since it would obviously render nugatory the negotiations that the US is about to undertake with the new Iranian government.
