When will Israel attack Iran?

"(T)he period from Nov. 5 to Jan. 19 seems the best bet, as it gives the West half a year to try the diplomatic route but ensures that Israel will have support from a lame-duck White House" writes Benny Morris in a morbid NY Times op-ed.

Morris echoes Senator Kerry's lament that sanctions have not been given a serious go (see "Don't Myanmar Iran"). Morris believes Israel will do whatever it takes to prevent Iran from getting the bomb. And he argues that if the international community does not take action, both the world at large, but especially Iranians, will wish they had.
