Israel advocates a strategy of striking first, especially if its own existence may be at risk. This is what is known as the Begin doctrine, a line of political-military action that took shape 40 years ago when then Prime Minister, Menachem Begin, decided to attack Iraq’s nuclear reactor in Osirak.
Now, in the middle of the second decade of the 21st century, the biggest and perhaps the only existential threat Israel faces is from the Islamic Republic of Iran, especially if we consider the latter’s nuclear program. How does Israel now intend to stop this threat? Is it possible for Israel to resort to military force? In this video we tell you all the details.

In This Story: Iran
Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.
Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.
The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
