The news that the Israeli Air Force staged a long range aerial exercise, similar to a possible attack on Iran has not been well received in Tehran. Ahmadinejad’s close allies, such as government spokesman Gholamreza Elham, called it “impossible.” This statement is pretty much in line with the president’s belief that Israel would never dare to attack Iran, thus refusing to even consider it as a remote possibility.
However, other more pragmatic figures among the conservatives, such as Majles Spokesman Ali Larijani, are becoming more concerned about the increasing talk from Israel regarding the possibility of an attack. While warning that Israel could suffer more from the consequences of such an attack against Iran, Larijani and others have a right to be worried.
