israel's major concern is the looming iranian nuclear threat. as long as obama allows iran to go nuclear, he cannot expect any real cooperation from israel. as is, there are 100,000 missiles minimum aimed at israel, her population and industrial centers. many of these missiles are sophisticated. today, israel faces the gravest danger to her security since the yom kippur war. biden was sent mainly to tell israel that she is not allowed to attack iran. since the obama administration feels it can interfere in all and any way in the internal and defence of the state of israel, israel has every right to fight back. the day iran has the bomb, and that day is very near, the issue of jerusalem will become moot.
