Israel would be foolish to attack Iran as they did Iraq, as any Israeli attack on Muslims would galvanize Sunni and Shi'a against them, when right now, Iran and the Sunni world are mildly antagonistic towards one another. Best to let the U.S. take care of it with the tacit backing of significant parts of the Sunni and secular Muslim world.
