A good analysis on the Iranian threat, by Guy Bechor of the IDC in Herzliya.
His conclusion: " I am not belittling the Iranian threat on Israel. The world realizes that Iran poses a global threat, and Israel should utilize all its intelligence resources in an effort to halt nuclear Iranian development. Israel should also serve as a silent coordinator of global activity on this matter. However, when Ahmadinejad becomes entangled in his own country, at a time when many regret they voted him into office, and when the world is seeking to use a stick against him but also to placate the Iranian people - Israel would do well not to interfere publicly. It's unfortunate that we are turning Iranian defiance regarding nuclear development into a matter that relates solely to us. It's unfortunate that by our own doing we are helping Ahmadinejad."
