Israel capable of striking Iran nuclear sites

Israel planning to make war on Iran by striking at Iran’s nuclear facilities. Ironically, it is well known that Israel possesses nuclear weapons.

Iran will possess nuclear weapons unless military action is taken against it, and Israel would be capable of carrying out such an attack, a respected Israeli think tank said Tuesday.

“Time is working in Iran’s favor, and barring military action, Iran’s possession of nuclear weapons is only a matter of time,” Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies said in a statement distributed at a news conference where it released its annual assessment of the Middle East’s strategic balance. Israel considers Iran to be its most serious threat. It dismisses Tehran’s claims that its nuclear program is designed solely to produce energy and is worried by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s repeated calls to wipe the Jewish state off the map.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has not ruled out a military strike against Iran’s nuclear program, but has said he hoped other ways could be found to keep Tehran from becoming a nuclear power. In 1981, Israel destroyed an unfinished Iraqi nuclear reactor in a surprise air attack. The INSS think tank stopped short of calling for an Israeli military strike to curb Tehran’s nuclear ambitions.
