Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday that he is not optimistic that the international community will come together in order to put a stop to Iran's nuclear program, speaking with Israel Radio. The near future, however, following the impending release of an IAEA report on Tehran's nuclear program, presents the best opportunity for convincing the world to act against Iran.
