    I agree with much of your rationale - except for one fundamental question Are the protagonists in Iran prepared to use the weapon in a first strike to try to destroy Israel? My heart says no. But try to follow some of the recent rhetoric and noises coming out of the RG and some of the shadowy Mullahs who talk about their God Given Duty to Wipe Israel off the Map If you were in that position would you take the risk? And if they were prepared to use it on Israel whos to say they wouldnt use it anywhere else. Its purely down to a Risk Assesment. As I see if if the risks of a nuclear attack on Israel are MORE than 0% - then Israel has to take the necessary action UNLESS of course the politicians seek to provide mutual assurance of territorial integrity
