Israel Wants U.S. to Join It in Delaying Iran's Nuclear Project

(Ha'aretz) Amos Harel - Israel wants to maintain the image of a military threat to Iran's nuclear project, even though it knows that whether a new nuclear agreement will be signed depends primarily on the Iranians. If Ayatollah Khamenei decides that he's interested in an agreement, the Americans will jump at the opportunity. Israel's impression is that it's convenient for the Iranian regime to project toughness, while enrichment is continuing apace. The agreement might whitewash the progress the Iranians will have made by the time they sign it. If no agreement is signed, Israel will seek to recruit the U.S. to its "campaign between wars," the battles Israel has been waging for the past decade, which initially focused on preventing arms smuggling via Syria to Hizbullah in Lebanon. It has spread to systematic attacks on Iranian interests throughout the Middle East. Israel wants the U.S. to join this project and expand it to include delaying Iran's nuclear project.
