A Sunday report in the British Telegraph said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu intends to demand a pledge on Iran from US President Barack Obama in their upcoming meeting.

According to the report, Netanyahu will tell Obama that the only way to  prevent a unilateral Israeli strike on Iran is to pledge that the United States will attack the nuclear sites before the Islamic Republic can acquire a weapon.

"Military planners have concluded that never before has the timing for a unilateral military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities been so auspicious," the report cites a source close to Israel's security establishment as saying.

In particular, the tumult in Syria, Iran's longtime ally, has changed Israel's calculations. Syria, mired in suppressing an uprising, is less able to help Iran project its power through the region.
