Israel will not let Iran get much further with its nuclear work: Fact. Israel cannot defeat Iran without nukes: Fact. I think we can see where this is going.

It will be a blood bath and without American support or the use of nuclear weapons Israel has a very high chance of becoming a smoldering pile of debris.

Iran just wants nukes so it can use it as a bargaining chip...they will never use them. It wouldn't even make sense to use them, it would render the land useless for decades.
If they nuked Jerusalem the Muslim world would destroy them itself.

The turning point is the 2006 Lebanon War. Israel has become impotent. It can't even defeat a small Hezbollah militia of 3,000 men. Even with complete air superiorty on their side. Hezbollah is the most anti-Jewish organization in the world, and Israel can't do nothing about it.

A coalition of the willing
Russia says "political factors" will determine if it goes through with plans to expand nuclear co-operation with Iran. "Whether the plans will be realised depends on many factors," a statement from the Russian Atomic Energy Ministry said.
The move is an apparent concession to United States Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham, who said on Thursday that the matter was of the "utmost" concern to the US.
Last week Moscow surprised Washington by announcing a 10-year nuclear co-operation accord with Iran - one of three countries denounced by President George Bush as an "axis of evil".
The US has long opposed Russia's involvement in the construction of a nuclear power plant at Bushehr in southern Iran, and the new accord includes provision for further plants to be built
US officials argue there can be no other reason for a country with Iran's oil resources to want so many nuclear power reactors.
The declaration presents Iran with a clear choice: Only if it opens up its nuclear program to international inspection will it receive assurances it will not be subject to a nuclear first strike.
