Israel was isolated when it attacked nuclear facilities in Syria and Iraq. Israel is and will be isolated for the foreseeable future. It has to do what it has to do to protect itself from potential Iranian statements that " Israel is a cancer that should be wiped off the face of the Earth". Israel cannot afford to ignore these comments unless their is a change in Iran. Public opinion in the US is not what Haaretz comments reflect. No US President will survive if Iran acquires a nuclear weapon and uses it to wipe the Jews off the face of the Earth as they said they would.
