Israel not seen as preparing for attack on Iran
Report Section
Aug 3, 2003

ABU DHABI - Arab strategists do not see Israel as preparing for an attack on Iran's nuclear weapons infrastructure.

Strategists from such countries as Egypt and Jordan have concluded that Israel will rely on the United States to halt Iran's nuclear weapons program. They said the U.S. military presence in neighboring Iraq provides Washington with unrivaled capability in destroying suspected Iranian weapons sites.

Many of the strategists dismissed Iran's nuclear program. They said Iran need larger facilities and remains far from nuclear weapons capability.

"Iran's nuclear reactor is too small to produce weapons," Sayed Ali Al Mungi, a physics professor at Egypt's at Ain Shams University and regarded as a leading nuclear strategist. "Yet Israel sees Iran as a direct threat. But I don't think Israel will launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran as it did to Iraq in 1981."

I find it hard to beleive that Israel would have such comfort in relying on the U.S. to prevent such an attack. I have no doubt that Israel WILL do what is necassary to protect their people and as shown in the past have the ability to determine when it is needed and how to stiffle such a concern.

This is quite a collection of countries.
