Over the past several weeks there has been an eruption of alarming reports, high-level meetings, and public debate over whether Israel is close to deciding--or has already decided--to launch a military assault on Iran before the November U.S. presidential election.


On August 10, Channel 2 News, Israel's leading news program, stated that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Barak were on the verge of making a decision to go to war.   "Insofar as it depends on [Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu and [Defense Minister] Ehud Barak," the Guardian UK, citing Israel's largest daily Yedioth Ahronoth, reported, "an Israeli military strike on the nuclear facilities in Iran will take place in these coming autumn months, before the U.S. elections in November."  


The week before, The New York Times reported, "In Israel, there remains feverish speculation that Mr. Netanyahu will act in September or early October." A former head of Israeli intelligence commented, "If I was an Iranian, I would be very fearful of the next 12 weeks."
