Obama-approved™ media continue to claim Iran not developing nuclear weapon

The Obama-approved™ media continues to tout the view that Israel's leadership no longer believes that Iran is developing a nuclear weapon, in the hope of preventing an Israeli strike on Iran and ensuring President Obama's reelection (Hat Tip: Memeorandum). This is from al-AP.
Despite saber-rattling from Jerusalem, Israeli officials now agree with the U.S. assessment that Tehran has not yet decided on the actual construction of a nuclear bomb, according to senior Israeli government and defense figures.

Even so, there is great concern in Israel about leaving Iran “on the cusp” of a bomb - explaining why Israel continues to hint at a military attack on Iran’s nuclear installations before it moves enough of them underground to protect them from Israel’s bombs.


Several senior Israeli officials who spoke in recent days to The Associated Press said Israel has come around to the U.S. view that no final decision to build a bomb has been made by Iran. The officials, who are privy to intelligence and to the discussion about the Iranian program, said this is the prevailing view in the intelligence community, but there are also questions about whether Tehran might be hiding specific bomb making operations.

The concern, they said, is about allowing the Iranian program to reach the point where there is enough enriched weapons grade material that a bomb could quickly be assembled, within a year.


The suspicion in Israel is that the Iranians have held off on a decision in order to deny Israel - and other countries - the pretext for an attack, officials said, noting that to a certain extent the matter is semantic and therefore secondary.

All the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the subject is deemed too delicate to be discussed on the record, and the government has ordered silence.
Something very strange is going on here. There is not a word about this in the Israeli media except for the occasional link to the foreign reports. Military censor? Hardly - we'd at least know that the military censor was acting.

If this is really what Israel's leadership believes, why isn't any Israeli media reporting it?

Sorry - I don't buy this. It's either American wishful thinking, part of the continuing American attempt to get us to call off a strike until after the US elections or disinformation being issued by Israel.

What could go wrong?
