But, wait, if we do that, and other Arab nations cry foul, who will stand up for Israel and diffuse the potential backlash?
Egypt will, if we give them money.
The only thing I can think of is bribes and hush money on an epic scale.
Israel will then use that money to purchase the tools required to remove Iran's reactors. Egypt will turn a blind eye, leading other Arab nations
because, for the most part, other than Syria, Iran is lacking in the ally department anyway.
Egypt under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood, has already broken agreements with Israel, and leaders have openly called for Israel's
destruction... Ahmadinejad recently met with the Egyptian leaders to discuss the threats of Israel. Giving Egypt money makes no sense at all, no
matter how you look at it.
Israel already has the "tools" to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat, but does NOT have the backing of the current US administration, and for them
to go it alone without that backing would be foolish.
IF there is a war in the region with Israel, the Muslim nations (less Saudi Arabia) would likely unite against Israel.
Israel is now surrounded by enemies and never more isolated in that their main ally (USA) may not "have their back" anymore.
If Israel lashes out against any Muslim countries in the region with military aggression, it could be the spark that will launch the long feared all
out Arab Muslim/Israeli war, and could consume the region, may possibly be devastating for the region, and for Israel, as well as having major impact
on the global economies because of possible disruption in oil shipments.
Where does the USA come into all of this?
Who's side are they going to be on?
Money isn't going to buy their way out of this one.
