ABSTRACT
The author discusses issues pertaining to a potential attack against Iran by Israel. In the middle of the Arab Spring protest movements, the involvement of Israel in anti-Iranian campaigns has intensified. Israel continues to view Iran as its adversary particularly after news about the advancement of the nuclear weapons program of the latter. A fabricated incident involving the Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. is said to have urged further offensive actions against Iran.
