Israeli Kamikazes?

The USA will probably not attack Iran, but Israel might. There is already some serious logistical discussion at high levels:
U.S. analysts say each facility would require multiple hits before serious damage was done. Still, the Israelis—who have an undeclared nuclear arsenal of their own, and refuse international inspections or oversight—insist they have all the firepower they need: more than 100 U.S.-made BLU-109 "bunker buster" earth-penetrating bombs. "I think they could do the job," says the senior Israeli source.
Speaking of that "undeclared nuclear arsenal", when is the UN Security Council going to demand inspection of Israeli facilities? Oh, that's right - never. Because the USA has the veto.
