None of these talks while sanctions take effect mean Israel can sit safe. With all the U.S. has done to provide better assurance of support and deeper-penetrating bombs, there is always a high risk that intelligence on how much nuclear material Iran has is incomplete or that intelligence on where it is stored is incomplete. It is not as if Iran is incapable of keeping some of its secrets a secret. So, Israel's edginess is going to increase with every new round"

"Iran does not have forever to drag out these talks. Almost everyone accepts that Israel would have already attacked Iran if not for intense U.S. persuasion not to. Israel has expressed zero belief in the likelihood of sanctions and talks to accomplish anything. It clearly strains Prime Minister NetanyahuÂ’s patience to the limit to abide these talks, but he is waiting." ( http://thegreatrecession.info/blog/israel-ira... )
