U.S. Magazine: Israel Unable to Strike Iran

WASHINGTON (Dispatches) -- Not for the first time in recent memory, the occupying regime of Israel wants the world to know it is ready and willing to militarily strike Iran—alone if it has to.
In recent weeks, Zionist war minister Benny Gantz has twice spoken of Israel’s readiness to strike Iran militarily.
“I do not rule out the possibility that Israel will have to take action in the future in order to prevent a nuclear Iran,” he said at a briefing of foreign ambassadors and envoys.
And as though to add to the alarmist mood, the occupying regime’s chief of general staff Aviv Kochavi claimed that the “progress in the Iranian nuclear program has led the IDF to speed up its operational plans” for an attack on the country and that a recently-approved “defense budget … is meant to address this.”
A dedicated team, he boasted, had been assembled to boost preparation for a strike on Iranian nuclear facilities should such a strike be ordered by the Zionist regime’s political leadership.
For his part, the occupying regime’s extremist prime minister Neftali Bennett has said Israel was ready to “act alone” against Iran if it ever felt the need to do so. He made the remarks after an attack on an Israeli-managed tanker off the coast of Oman.
“To be sure, Israel has in the past carried out relatively limited operations against Iran—such as raids on Iranian allies in Syria and nuclear sabotage—and may continue to do so in the future. But to what extent should we believe Tel Aviv is truly ready and willing to launch a strike on Iran… knowing full well that this is likely to push the two sides and their allies into war? The political and military constraints on Israeli decision-makers suggests such a military showdown is highly unlikely,” U.S. news magazine Foreign Policy wrote.
