A Conflict is Brewing

The concern about the Iranian nuclear program in Israel is growing. Israeli sources say there's a possibility of some type of conflict in the near term. Most observers have been talking about an Israeli strike against Iran, but a source in Israel says the likelihood is greater that Iran will launch a pre-emptive strike in Israel using Hezbollah and Hamas. Hamas now has rockets that can reach Tel Aviv, so does Hezbollah. The thinking among some top Israelis strategists appears to be, Iran will launch this war via remote control as a distraction.

Missile Test

The Pentagon says Israel is going to test an interceptor missile on a U.S. missile range in the Pacific Ocean in the near term. It's an exercise that's going to involve three U.S. missile defense systems. The Missile Defense agency says it will provide Israel the opportunity to test its advanced Arrow system against a target with a range of more than 620 miles. It's being conducted there, because there isn't enough space to conduct that kind of test in the eastern Mediterranean Sea.
