BBC Headline: Panetta: Israel yet to decide on Iran strike
It is difficult to believe anything, any news item, when Israel features in the content. Immediately before the Six-Day War the whole world learned that Israel has sent its reserve military personnel home on vacation. Some people were seen frolicking in swimming pool - people on holiday. And then Israel attacked Egypt - destroying their whole air force on the first day. In next six days they comprehensively defeated three countries single handedly - Egypt, Jordan and Syria.
Now the target of affection is another Muslim state - Iran. Just see how cool the discourse is:
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said recently that time was running out - a view also echoed by Israel's ambassador to the US.
