Israel fears a heightened tension to her citizens owing to the already existing conflict between the two countries and she feels threatened by Iran operated nuclear plants. However, questions run parallel in a possible production of nuclear weapons by even Israel. This has not yet been confirmed with the Israelian government keeping it a secret.Ehud Barrack, the defense minister to Israel, justifies the mission to strike the Iranian nuclear states saying that given time Iran is about to advance to a state of ‘strike immunity’. This is because she is gradually building up her military power and already the international communities are slow to combat her nuclear activities. He says the only right time to stop her activities is now because she has failed to honor international regulations in nuclear activities. Nevertheless, the U.S is reluctant to buy the idea giving the reason that Iran needs time in order to adopt with the economic sanctions put to her. This, however, according to Ehud will simply give her time to plan counters and this would ultimately make her such a pre-emptive strike proof. Weaponized Iran will certainly be a security threat to Israel and United States. However, policy makers should be aware that military strike would have even greater effects to the two nations at large. Israeli-Iran Conflict.
