Could you ask the source a follow up question? He mentions that the Israelis destroyed the Iranians nuclear infrastructure weeks ago -- what is he referring to?

Is it okay to describe him as "Israeli intelligence officer" on the Alpha list? Or would something else be better?

We've given him a code number, but since then he's just sent open source information, so we haven't put together the full source description and number information for him.

I think this is a diversion. The Israelis already destroyed all the Iranian nuclear infrastructure on the ground weeks ago. The current "let's bomb Iran" campaign was ordered by the EU leaders to divert the public attention from their at home financial problems. It plays also well for the US since Pakistan, Russia and N. Korea are mentioned in the report.

The result of this campaign will be massive attacks on Gaza and strikes on Hezbollah in both Lebanon and Syria. I still owe you a research; I'm traveling a lot in the last few weeks but will get back to you soon with info.
Best, David

Source: Russian media

Preparations for a military operation against Iran enter a decisive phase.

Israel stands on the verge of military conformation with Iran. This announcement was made by the Israeli president, Shimon Peres who, in an interview with the local media, had acknowledged for the first time that a military solution to Iran's nuclear program is a**closer than a diplomatic one.a** The Israeli leadera**s unprecedented announcement was made on the eve of a release of an IAEA report, which according to various information leaks, contains conclusive evidence that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. However, there is a chance Israel will be force to fight alone: not one of its Western allies is yet ready to support strikes against Iranian facilities

The sensational news that the Israeli leadership is getting ready to strike Irana**s nuclear facilities was made twice by the Israeli President Shimon Peres. The first announcement was made last Saturday in an interview with the local Channel Two, in which he stated that Israela**s attack on Iran is becoming a**more and more likely.a** And yesterday, Mr. Peres had reiterated his thesis in an interview with the Israeli newspaper Hayom. a**A military strike on Iran is now closer than the diplomatic option,a** admitted Shimon Peres, and added that Israelis must a**stay calm and resist outside pressure.a**

Despite the fact that the idea of a probable conflict with Iran has been discussed in Israel for a number of years, the possibility of a strike against Iranian nuclear facilities has, until now, been discussed by the media, while high-ranking leadership representatives resorting to evasive statements, holding back from acknowledging a readiness to attack Iran. Meanwhile, the candid statement, made by Shimon Peres, who is second in charge of the country after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, shows that a qualitative shift has been made within the Israeli leadershipa**s assessment of the situation around Iran.

Another confirmation could be last weeka**s information leakage in the Haaretz, according to which Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are actively consulting with other members of the Israeli Cabinet, while trying to gain their support before presenting the question of a military attack on Iran before the Israeli government for consideration. Moreover, last week Israel has held large-scale civil defense drills, focusing on protection from conventional weapons and WMD.

According to the Haaretz, recent polls show that a preemptive strike against Iran is supported by 41 per cent of Israelis, opposed by 39 per cent, and 20 per cent of the population is undecided. At the same time, the newspaper reports that most of the 15 members of the Israeli Cabinet are not ready to support a strike on Iran.

Meanwhile, the number of Israelis and members of the government who support a military solution could increase in the coming days. The reason being that, this week (tentatively on Tuesday-Wednesday), the IAEA is expected to release a new, most comprehensive and detailed report on Irana**s nuclear programs. Based on information leaks, the IAEA report will contain conclusive evidence that Iranian scientists are taking new steps toward creating a nuclear weapon. In particular, the report cites a computer simulation of nuclear warheads, conducted by Iranian specialists, as well as efforts to fill warheads with enriched uranium and creation of carrier rockets.

At the same time, a source in Russiaa**s Foreign Affairs Ministry told Kommersant that the IAEA report does not contain any new information on the development of Irana**s nuclear program. a**All of these questions had been posed to Iran back in 2007. And despite the fact that Tehrana**s responses were deemed unsatisfactory, Moscow considers the publication of the IAEA report to be untimely, as it raises the risk of conflict in the region, while the possibilities to renew talks are far from exhausted,a** said Kommersanta**s interlocutor. a**The IAEAa**a goal is to create conditions for negotiations, and not further-escalate the situation. Considering the Arab Spring, a war in this region could be catastrophic.a**

However, in the event of an attack on Iran, there is a possibility Israel will be forced to fight alone. a**We have said many times in the last weeks and months that we do not seek a military confrontation with Iran. That remains our position,a** said Victoria Nuland, spokesperson for the US Department of State. Meanwhile, in an interview with the radio network Europe1, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe warned that a strike against Irana**s nuclear facilities will have a**a totally destabilizing effect in the region.a**

The Israeli leadership, meanwhile, has been prepared to face such position from its Western allies. a**In the Middle East, a situation may arise, when Israel will need to defend its interests on its own, without counting on the regional and other forces,a** said Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak.
