Roundtable discussion: Should Israel strike Iran?

Should Israel strike Iran? Or should it give sanctions and negotiations more time? Here's an interesting symposium that discusses the issue. And it starts out with this fact which might surprise some of you:
Seven years ago, Professor Efraim Inbar wrote a document whose bottom line could be summed up as advocating for Israel to attack Iran to stop it from attaining a nuclear capability. This week, Inbar, a political scientist who currently serves as the director of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies at Bar-Ilan University, is somewhat encouraged that more and more Israelis have now reached the same conclusion.

To bolster this line of thinking, a poll commissioned this week by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, the think tank headed by Dore Gold, indicates that 60 percent of the Israeli public believes the only way to stop Iran is by means of a military strike.
I suspect that most of the rest of the world believes that last clause as well. The question is whether they are willing to do it, and if they do not, should we. Read the whole thing.
