    A couple of days ago, Israel called on the UN and all nations to impose further sanctions on Iran. Before even giving the nations a chance to consider this call, we hear endless talk about an Israeli attack on Iran. Obviously, this is a Netanyahu attempt to induce the world to heed his call under the threat of setting the Middle East on fire. I don't buy this threat. Netanyahu is a political coward, and an attack on Iran is too risky for his political survival. Of course, such an attack does not make any sense by itself, it will delay Iran's operations by a couple of years perhaps (which they are being delayed now anyhow due to IAEA watching), but buy Israel an eternal suicidal enemy. But I assume that what convinces Netanyahu most is his own political survival. So my expectation is that there will be no Israeli attack on Iran before the next Israeli elections.
