Israel Rehearsing Plans to Destroy Iran´s Nuclear Plants

Gathering momentum?
Israel has operational plans for a combined air and ground attack on Iranian nuclear installations, to be used if Tehran fails to halt its atomic weapons program.
A possible strike on Iran is subject to a lot of discussions, which focus mainly on the issue of feasability: Iran is much farther away than Iraq (where Israel destroyed the Osiraq reactor in 1980), and Iran's facilities (there are several) are spread out over a huge area, and sometimes hidden as well.

I think feasability is a non-issue. The issue should be priority. If even
Reuters reports that "Tehran, which has a stated goal of destroying the Jewish state, says its nuclear activities are aimed only at electricity generation." The international community does not believe this, however.
then it should be clear that Israel needs to decide wether it wishes to gamble its existence on the whims of the Mad Mullahs. If it does not, then there is no other option than to forcibly prevent Iran from aquiring nuclear weapons. No matter what the cost to Israel.
