This first week of March 2012 will see Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu on a U.S. visit clouded by a deepening rift with Washington D.C. - pressing Israel to hold off on any attack against Iran's suspect nuclear program.
U.S. officials are wary that an Israeli strike could drive up oil prices and entangle the U.S. in a new Mideast military confrontation during the general election season. They want to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to work.
It cites Iranian leaders' repeated calls for Israel's destruction; support for anti-Israel militant groups and its arsenal of ballistic missiles that are already capable of striking Israel.
It also fears a nuclear Iran would touch off an atomic weapons race in a region hostile to Israel's existence.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, seen here with nuclear scientists, was born October 28, 1956. Wikipedia says he is the sixth and current President of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the main political leader of the Alliance of Builders of Islamic Iran, a coalition of conservative political groups in the country. An engineer and teacher from a poor background, Ahmadinejad joined the 'Office for Strengthening Unity' after the Islamic Revolution. Appointed a provincial governor, he was removed after the election of President Mohammad Khatami and returned to teaching. Tehran's council elected him mayor in 2003. He took a religious hard line, reversing reforms of previous moderate mayors. His 2005 presidential campaign, supported by the Alliance of Builders of Islamic Iran, garnered 62% of the runoff election votes and he became President on August 3, 2005. His second term ends on August 3, 2013. He is not eligible to run for another term under the current Iranian constitution.
Israel itself is thought to have a significant arsenal of nuclear weapons, though it does not admit that as a matter of policy.
Instead, he said, "we've had a conversation with them about time" and added he would "absolutely not" take military force against Iran off the table.
