    The chance that Iran would attack Israel with a nuclear weapon is epsilonic; about as small a number other than zero as one could write. It would be suicidal; guaranteed. If I lived in Israel I would not want an attack on Iran. If I lived in Iran I for sure would not want an attack on Israel. For whatever reason Iran wants the comfort, prestige, and power of having nuclear weapon capability. The one reason it does not want it is to attack Israel. Be sure Iran knows how to build a missile capable atomic bomb. It is trying to accumulate enough highly enriched uranium to assemble bombs, but it may never actually build a bomb. Neither Pakistan or India built bombs until long after they had the capability and the material to do so. Do you recall that Israel had no bombs stockpiled at the time of the war with Egypt. As long as one has the material, the parts, the means to assemble and the know how there is no need to have assembled bombs. For sure Israel now has assembled bombs, if nowhere else at least on submarines in the Indian ocean. That includes fusion bombs; enought to take out all of Iran.
