To the editor:
It seems more and more likely that something will occur quite soon in Iran. It is inevitable that Israel will act before the November elections. It would also be highly beneficial to the Republican Party if they did so.
From Israel's point of view an attack makes very good sense because they cannot sit idle much longer and expect the United States to back their actions. They can hardly wait and risk losing that support, which may well be the case in the event of a Democratic landslide.
The decision to act has already been made, and the rehearsal has happened. The airstrikes will at least send the message even though the nuclear program in Iran is widely dispersed. The strikes will at least delay the annihilation of Israel and create a panic in Europe. However it will force the attention of the world upon the problem. I feel confident in this prediction because from Israel's point of view with the covert encouragement of the present administration it will bring advantages to both parties.
