Will Israel attack Iran? – The voice of experience vs. an insider’s view
Since no-one knows for sure what Benjamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak will decide come the moment of truth, perhaps they don’t even know for sure, it is instructive to look at the past decisions of both men.
At an event a few days ago, I asked two Israelis whose opinions I respect, both can be described for lack of a better word as ”knowledgeable,” whether they thought an attack on Iran was imminent. I was surprised by the divergence in their vehement answer. “No way, it’s not going to happen” said the first. ”Bibi and Barak just don't have the guts to go all the way.”
