WASHINGTON -- The US offered to give Israel advanced weaponry -- including bunker-busting bombs and refueling planes -- in exchange for Israel's agreement not to attack Iranian nuclear sites, Israeli newspaper Maariv reported Thursday.
President Obama reportedly made the offer during Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington this week.
Under the proposed deal, Israel would not attack Iran until 2013, after US elections in November this year. The newspaper cited unnamed Western diplomatic and intelligence sources.
Netanyahu said Monday that sanctions against Iran had not worked, adding that "none of us can afford to wait much longer" in taking action against Iran's controversial nuclear program.
However, Netanyahu told FOX News Channel on Wednesday that he did not think war with Iran was inevitable. He added that the only way to deter Tehran was to advocate carrying out a serious military strike against the Islamic Republic.
"The paradox is that if they actually believe that they are going to face the military option, then you probably will not need the military option," Netanyahu said.

The administration is pitting politics against Israel’s security. If I were Israel, I would tell them to go to hell.
Netanyahu, eventually you must stop the saber rattling and pull out your weapons and fire before these sub-human cancer cells destroy you then continue on to destroy the rest of humanity.
Our muslime polished turd in chief is not going to help Israel and if Netanyahu would look into BO’s past he would know this.
Netanyahu, do the world a favor and drop a few hundred bunker busters on these 6th century sand monkeys. Yeah, BO will be upset but the rest of us will be very grateful.
BO and his fellow travelers in the Marxist/communist/socialist world want Iran to erase you from the face of the earth and I am sure you remember how well the Jewish people fared under the last powerful socialist regime.
I am sorry, we cannot or will not come to your aid as long as we have this Marxist as CIC but if he is re-elected Israel will have to wait another 4+ years before any possibility of support from the USA. You are on your own until we can purge the vermin from our WH and congress.
Netanyahu, by the way if you want to help us with this purge in the USA how about asking the Jews in the USA to stop supporting those who have no love for Israel? At some point in time they have to put their love of Marxism behind their religion and the USA otherwise the Holocaust will look like a cakewalk.
The antichrist doesn’t want Bibi to screw up the election....
Shove it up Obama's Keester.....
...aaaand I will givem boxing gloves and watch their back..
URL doesn’t seem right. This one works:
A solution is being worked out for a peaceful resolution. Iran will allow inspectors and only use enrichment for peaceful purposes. The U.S and Europe will lift sanctions and Israel will agree not to attack. Another JFK missile crisis has been averted.
