Speculation over a potential Israeli attack on Iran has circulated via media reports and governmental agencies, and was heightened following the release of an IAEA report this week that portrayed Iran as a major nuclear threat. According to a United Kingdom foreign official, an attack on Iran by Israel could take place as early as next month.
A senior Foreign Office figure told the Daily Mail newspaper, “We’re expecting something as early as Christmas, or very early in the new year,” adding that Israel will attack Iran’s nuclear sites “sooner rather than later.”
Part of the reason for the rush is fear that Iran may be able to move the majority of its nuclear processing equipment underground. According to that source, the United Kingdom will not get involved if Israel does indeed attack Iran’s nuclear sites because the UK officials do not believe Iran would ever use a nuclear bomb, even if they somehow came into possession of one. “The bigger concern is it will be impossible to stop Saudi Arabia and Turkey from developing their own weapons,” added that source.
Paul Joseph Watson reports, “The revelation came one week after British chief of staff, Gen. Sir David Richards paid a secret visit to Israel which was followed the next day by Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak visiting London for talks with British military chiefs.”
