If he was representative of Israeli determination and the nature of that determination still exists today, I cannot fault your conclusion.
Israel knows it is the prime target of Iran and Ahmedinejad. I would rather the U.S. take action, but I am beginning to have my doubts as to our political will (at least based on what the administration is saying).
On the other hand, Iraq might have been a first step toward moving against Iran. With a regime change in Iran, Iraq would have a much better chance of success and Israel would be able to breathe for a while. But with the Revolutionary guard firmly in the grasp of Ahmedinejad, I don't see an internal rebellion succeeding without external military action.
