Bloomberg News sees Netanyahu blackmail of Obama:
If Israel is about to attack Iran (and this time the threats are backed up by distribution of gas masks and other civil defense preparations), then using the campaign season to pull in the U.S. makes tactical sense. Neither President Barack Obama nor Republican candidate Mitt Romneywould want to alienate Jewish or evangelical Christian voters and donors by failing to support Israel. But it would also damage Israel’s most important strategic partnership. Nobody likes getting blackmailed.Meanwhile, the New York Times reports that "Israel’s President Criticizes Talk of Unilateral Strike on Iran."
