As Israel pushes for international action against Iran's nuclear program, it is steadily assembling one of the world's most advanced missile defense systems, a multilayered collection of weapons meant to guard against everything from the shorter-range Grads that have been used to strike Israeli towns such as this one to intercontinental rockets.
The effort, partly financed by the United States and incorporating advanced U.S. radar and other technology, has been progressing quietly for two decades but now has reached a level of maturity that Israeli defense and other analysts say could begin changing strategic decisions in the region. Centered on the already-deployed Arrow 2 antimissile system, it is being extended to include a longer-range Arrow 3, the David's Sling rocket designed to hit lower- and slower-flying cruise missiles, and the Iron Dome system intended to destroy Grads, Katyushas, Qassams and other shorter-range projectiles fired from the Gaza Strip and southern Lebanon.

What makes israel think they can take on the largest Arab army
Iran is not an Arab country, they don't like Arabs; but
"The enemy of my enemy is my friend"

I think that deep down, the regime in Israel knows that their tiny tiny tiny nation cannot even survive 2 nuclear strikes without literally wiping out virtually their entire population, even if 2 medium sized nukes were dropped say on Tel-Aviv and West Jerusalem--
And it is fairly well known among the political connoscenti that Iran has (and can easily acquire with all of its oil cash) medium sized nukes from any rogue nation (including Russia) and use them if necessary against anyone in their vicinity who would dare to become aggressive with them.
Iran is easily 150 times larger in size than tiny tiny Israel--and could completely destroy Israel in a few hours--the question would be
a. what would be the response from the higher ranking Ashkenazim within the US government (esp AIPAC related persons) to an Iranian nucklear strike on Tel-Aviv,
and b. would Iran be forcing the west into some version of World War III which would inevitably have them partnering with other forces in the world to destroy NYC with nuclear strikes on Brooklyn/northern New Jersey and Miami Beach &tc.
Either way, all this sabre rattling is a little disturbing to say the least, and I cannot imagine that even 'BB for brains Nuttin'Honey' would seriously consider attacking Iran--unless he has a Messiah complex (which the little worm might have !)

Israel will not attack because they KNOW 50% of those 10,000 missiles that Iran has locked on target, are aimed at Tel Aviv.
