What Ehud Barak Could Be Saying?

In a surprising statement, Ehud Barak told reporters that he does not see Iran striking Israel with nuclear weapons.
Barak said he doubts that Iran is "crazy" enough -- he used the Yiddish word "meshugah" -- to launch a nuclear attack against Israel


It is possible that the Israeli Defense Minister, aside from trying not to make Iran angrier, is actually making it appear that Israel has no intention of making any strike against its enemies. That everything is ok and Israel is just concerned about the repercussions in the far-flung future.
