John Bolton says Israel only has eight days left to strike the nuclear plant at Bushehr before it goes on-line. I find it hard to believe Israel would do such a thing. In particular, I find it hard to believe that Ehud Barak, the defense minister, would agree with the prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu (whose position on this I do not know) and do something so precipitous, especially now that the Israeli and American government are more-or-less in sync on the Iran timeline.
