Dont play the Iranian game

Reader comment on item: Israel vs. Iran
in response to reader comment: Will Israel bomb Iranian nuclear sites?

Submitted by Abdulkarim Al-habsi (Oman), Apr 2, 2012 at 04:34

The Iranians want Israel to attack. This is the only way for the mullahs to stay in power. They know their days are numbered as a ruling elite, the Iranian people will sweep them sooner or later, an Israeli attack will remove all that pressure.

Another part of this situation is that Israel can not destroy Iranians nuclear program, all what Israel can hope to achieve is to delay the program by a year or two, then Iran will storm out of the NPT, take the IAEA seals and cameras, move the entire program few hundred of meters below mountain ranges, and deliver nuclear devices in the truck loads within years. This is something we and Israelis can agree on refusing.

The current sanction program is the best way. It will rack pressure on the mullas, drive their economy to the ditch, and give room for the liberals in Iran to drive the crazy mullas out.
