    It appears that Israel, the US and the UK working together have so badly damaged Iran’s nuclear bomb program that there is no immediate concern and no need for an attack. Moreover, the group is doing an excellent job of killing off or kidnapping Iran’s nuclear experts, thereby insuring further delay or potentially destroying the program. Israel is well prepared for Hezbollah and will take them out the next chance they get. Israeli politicians may have different perspectives and allegiances but when push comes to shove they will shove together. My point is that the group of three is neither as stupid nor as naïve as the Persians. Arabs and Turks would wish. Don’t underrate them. Moreover the amount of Jordan River water available to the West Bank is quite small, far less than Israel will soon be producing by desalination. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordan_River So Israel has the West Bank by the short hairs. Don’t under rate Israel’s ability to deal with the Palestinians. There is no rush. The longer they wait the stronger is their negotiating position.
