    if sanctions don't work and they continue to refuse to FULLY open the door to inspections. The only question is... Will their crazy mullahs read the tea leaves in time? Israel can continue to thrive despite a hostile Iran, but a nuclear Iran in its current form would undeniably pose an existential threat to the very survival of Israel as the home of the Jewish people. For the national security of Israel,the bulk of the middle east, and the western world + Russia, the only thing worse than an Israeli attack on Iran would be for Iran to actually have nuclear weapons. Although an Israeli attack would have horrible consequences - think World War III in the region and devastating economic impact for the whole world - unfortunately for all of us, as of right now the odds are probably greater than 50/50 that it will happen. And should Israel attack Iran, the US will be directly involved almost immediately. So, let's ALL hope sanctions work because Iran's time is almost up.
