    Israel will contemplate two options concerning Iran. The first option is by far the best. Israel will push for an American attack on Iran before the end of the year. This would get rid of Iran as a nuclear threat to Israel. It would also occupy the minds of Americans for many years, causing them to lose interest in settlements and blockades and such. It will also firmly cement Islam as an enemy in the eyes of Americans. Such a war would also cause America to throw a lot of extra money at Israel during the hostilities. As an added bonus, it would be the end of Obama as he would likely lose the election. It makes me drool just looking at the list of benefits and I am not even an israeli Jew. I can't imagine their joy if this option comes to pass. Option two is riskier and not nearly as good. This calls for Israel to attack Iran, triggering Iran to respond and hopefully drawing America into a war with Iran. If executed properly, it can work out as well as option one, but there is a small chance that this would backfire on Israel, alienating the world, including America and most especially the American people. They are not as stupid as Israel's leaders think they are.
