    and if it's written as rumored - without asking for sanctions - Netanyahu just may been in for strong dose of chagrin. He and Israel's right wing supporters, along with the Israeli media, have been strutting as if he'd won one over on Obama. But that presumption is both naive and premature. Odds are good, everything considered, that Netanyahu's gonna get slammed come that time...and he may not survive it politically. Also, it's in Israel's best interest if he stays the hell away from the Iranian issue and let's the U.S. and rest of the world deal with it. An attack by Israel will only fuel regional antagonism for Israel, without doing much more than slowing Iran's progress. Better to let the U.S. and the EU handle it - especially the military option if it comes to that - and instead try to come to an agreement with the Palestinians, which would actually be the BEST way for Israel to counter Iran's activities.
