    Israel will solve the problem' I think you're dreaming down your Brazilian mine, Jose Pedro. Israel is not a world power! It is not even a big player! It is just a small country on the sidelines! It will not be allowed to be involved - Israel bombing Iran would go down like a lead balloon after Cast Lead. It will not be allowed to drive the West to war - the issue is not about preserving Israel's nuclear hegemony in the region. It couldn't do anything useful anyway - its air force chief has just said that the deep enrichment facilities are, as all know well, beyond his air power. Israel is as usual big on threats and nationalist bombast, but you're not meant to take it literally, it's just hasbara for the domestic uber-Zio audience. One could of course wonder why an extremist, theocratic, nationalist regime in Iran can't have nuclear weapons while an equally extremist, theocratic, nationalist one in Israel can. Two peas from the same pod really.
