An illuminating interview at dear old Mother Jones with an Israeli journalist who covers the “national security” beat.
He echoes the notion of Mr Cronin in yesterday’s Guardian piece that Tel Aviv (not Washington) is in the driver’s seat as to whether there will be war with Iran. And plainly says yes, there will, unless there’s an unexpected turn.
And he mentions April 2008 as the date Israeli intelligence has deemed to be the point where Iran’s supposed bomb-making machine crosses “the technological threshold.”
For more on what middle-of-the-road Israelis think about all this, see The Jerusalem Post, which always has a section entitled The Iranian Threat.
