    Long ago Bibi realized that Israel would be easier to manage Israeli citizens were afraid of an attack. It is more difficult to appeal to logic that it is to project confidence against a potential threat (even when there is little or no basis behind that threat). Just look at the American example of this. Bush did exactly the same thing after 9-11 and was able to get American politicians, media and citizens to accept the invasion of Iraq under false and trumped-up accusations of WMD's. Iranian nuclear weapons are Bibi's example of Iraqi WMD's. Nothing more - nothing less. Unfortunately, this ploy is working in Israel. The same cannot be said for the rest of the world, which relies on hard facts.
