I am a little skeptical about the source that this article is taken from. I am sure if this was true that it would be all over the mainstream media. I couldn’t find anything about it.

Me thinks the last thing Israel will do is "publish" their military intentions.

If this story is true the element of surprise is gone. Israel may not like Iran but this would be a crazy move to let Iran know that they are clearly coming.

Israel has stated often and publicly that they could strike Iran at any time. No surprise there. And no battle plans or dates have been pulished.

If Israel appears to be "telegraphing" its intentions,,,,,,,,,,,it might be just posturing,,,,, to keep Iran nervous, and guessing! Baby steps, sanctions, keep their feet to the fire.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Make them stay up late at night,,,,,,,worrying, and wondering.

The last thing this world needs now, is yet another conflict, resulting in war. I hope and pray this does not happen.

For many years, Israel had global support for almost anything it did.
That has now evaporated and they are being judged exactly as other countries are judged.

An attack on someone, anyone, may get some global support but may also make them less popular on the world stage.

Unless, that is, it backfires on them and Israel ends up with a bloody nose.
In the past, they have won all the conflicts they have been involved in.
At some point, they may just come up against someone that wipes the floor with them.

Well, that would surely gain them some sympathy, but at what cost?
And is it worth the risk?
