Israel Almost Attacked Iran in 2010? Or Was the Idea More Nuanced — to Spur Iran into Striking Israel? (Then America Might’ve Been Drawn In)

A news documentary on Israeli TV hosted by Ilana Dayan reviewed the past decade of Israeli action aimed at stopping or slowing Iran’s nuclear program.

To some, a surprise in the program was a story about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak trying to get their security cabinet colleagues to approve stepping-up military preparedness in Israel — as though preparing for a war within hours.

Either Tuesday or Wednesday, we plan to add more — so far unrevealed — details of what the Israeli leaders really had in mind: mobilizing Israeli military forces in such a way that would likely prompt a first strike by Iran.  The calculation by Netanyahu and Barak apparently was that the United States would then enter the conflict quickly.  The U.S. would then use its invincible firepower to destroy Iran’s nuclear program.

The then-director of the Mossad, Meir Dagan, hated the idea.  More details to follow.
