Israel is in a race against time with Iran - whose opinion?

There is no doubt that the United States had no choice other than to accept Iran's offer of "dialogue" that excluded its nuclear program. Especially since Russia made it clear that it would block U.N. Sanctions. There is also no doubt that the dialogue will be sterile and simply waste more time, and that the Obama administration policy of negotiating with Iran has clearly failded. Here is an opinion about the latest Iranian negotiations ploy:
The Iranian response to the international community regarding negotiations on the nuclear issue did not provide any answers. Instead of Tehran providing answers on its nuclear file, it presented a package of proposals and ideas to solve international problems and issues and to solve current regional issues. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said a few days ago that "the nuclear issue is finished and there will be no discussion of it."
Iran showed that it was willing to take part in helping solve the problems of terrorism, the Palestinian issue, Iraq, and also Afghanistan. In other words, Tehran is presenting itself as a leader of the entire region and the proof is that it wants to solve our problems. Perhaps this explains some important matters for us. When Iran is demonstrating its willingness to help solve the pending issues then this means that it has a hand in what's happening in the region. When Iran talks about being willing to help solve the problem of terrorism, this explains why some members of Al Qaeda go to Iran, for example [Fawwaz] al Otaibi who handed himself in to Saudi authorities. Iran's willingness to help in Afghanistan also explains the discovery of an arsenal of Iranian weapons, including rockets, detonators and the like, which belonged to Taliban fighters. The same happened in Iraq where there are supporters of Iran, or Hamas in Palestine or Hezbollah in Lebanon.
This all suggests that Tehran is not serious about responding to the fundamental issue; the Iranian nuclear file. This represents a great danger to regional states firstly because of the intentions of Iran's Mullahs and secondly because it opens the door to nuclear armament in a region that is already full of violence and conflict.
It seems that we're back at square one. If there are some states in the international community willing to accept a nuclear Iran like [a nuclear] India and Pakistan for example, Israel will certainly not be one of them. This would explain the confusion that overcame everybody when asked: where did Netanyahu disappear to for nine hours? Was he in Moscow or somewhere else?
Israel is in a race against time in preparing to deal with Iran and preventing it from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Israel might carry out a swift and fatal blow in order to prevent nuclear armament.
...With regards to Israel, there is no doubt it will exploit the political failure of US President Barack Obama's extended hand for dialogue with Iran and this would explain the numerous military maneuvers that Israel conducted and continues to conduct and its overt and covert diplomatic actions.
In other words, the author believes that what Iran is saying is, "You need protection - from us."
Who wrote this Op-Ed? Frank Gaffney? Michael Ledeen, Brett Stephens, an Israeli?  Where did it appear? WSJ, TNR, Frontpage magazine? A "neo-con Zionist" publication, right? Wrong. The auther Is Tariq Tariq Alhomayed, editor-in-chief of Asharq al Awsat. He cannot be mistaken for a Zionist or a member of the Israel lobby. The article: an: Has the Ghost of Military Action Returned?
