Great. For Netanyahu an attack would be an enormous gamble. Certainly an unecessary risk from a political aspect. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    The mere political damage an attack would do for Netanyahu shows he had the interest of our country in priority. A-la Gelfand, he accepted the left wing gambit: "ok. let Iran continue. There's an agreement, and we'll see". Now what will the Netanyahu haters say? They will be mad. Same as after Shalit was released. The left had a huge campaign built up on Shalit, but it required Netanyahu to play their game, and not to release Shalit. Same here. The left expected an Israeli attack, for then to blame everything on Netanyahu, and there always are problems even in the most favorable war. They will be really mad this time. "How dare he".
