Israel's Iran Problem: Back to the Future?

Israel today is facing much the same threat from Iran that it did in the period prior to the Nuclear Agreement of 2015.  Before that deal was signed, there was much speculation that Israel was considering attacking Iran's nuclear facilities.  The deal largely ended such speculation, but with the US withdrawing from the agreement last year, and with Iran likely to follow suit shortly, Israel will find itself in a familiar situation.  Iran poses an existential threat to the state, and yet neither the US or the larger international community can be expected to take action against it.  So that will leave Israel, alone, to face Iran.  This presentation will review its options, and make some predictions on its likeliest course of action.  But the reality is that Israel has no good options in this scenario, only varying degrees of bad ones.
