This is what passes for “analysis” at the WSJ these days:
In sum, the conclusion among Israelis is that the Obama administration won’t lift a finger to stop Iran, much less will the “international community.” So Israel has pursued a different strategy, in effect seeking to goad the U.S. into stopping, or at least delaying, an Israeli attack by imposing stiff sanctions and perhaps even launching military strikes of its own.
Translated, that means that the Netanyahu government is openly attempting to push the United States into another Middle Eastern war.
