An Israeli minister opined that “the U.S. will never attack the nuclear facilities in Iran, Israel must decide whether it will accept a nuclear Iran”. He further described Iran’s ability to respond against Israel as “very limited” and indicated: “It’s possible that in the future there will be no choice [but to attack Iran militarily]… I hope that when our leadership is met with this dilemma, it won’t accept [a nuclear-armed Iran]”. The same day, another Israeli minister assessed that “in terms of enrichment, they [ie, Iranians] are in a situation of breaking out in around half a year if they do everything required. As for nuclear weaponry, the range is around one or two years”.
