1Wait. You want a prediction of Israeli (or Iranian) political/military decisions. And to get that you look at an obscure website that has "oracle" in its name, does not disclose who runs it and from where, has no address, no company details and not even an "about us" section. On such a site you read a random article by a fellow with an Arab name who is described as a derivative trader and financial analyst (though apparently not a very good one, as a quick Google search will show)...?
I suggest you read a few proper newspapers and then make your own, sovereign, enlightened, independent travel decision.

2That was pretty good buffybot.
OP - You keep asking multiple times as to whether or not you should go to Iran in December. Either go or don't go, but the only way anyone here can accurately tell you what will happen in Iran in December is if you ask us in January.
If you're that nervous stay home. If you accept that there are always things taking place in that region of the world which could be unsettling then just accept it as normal and go.

3You have this right to search about the country you decide to travel but I recommend you search through reliable and trusty websites. Because I have friends that have travelled to Iran recently without any problem and decide to travel in next month’s again.
My suggestion is : Don’t lose the pleasure of travel to such a beautiful country with unfounded rumor.

7I`d say the threat of an Israeli attack on Iranian military facilities is not just internet bullshit or rumors, I think that is pretty real. If it really comes and when, no one here can tell you. The CIA could probably tell you more, though.
Even if such an attack would not probabyl not endanger a tourists life I would feel terrible afraid if it happened during my holidays which means I would not plan a visit to Iran until after the attack is over (based on my personal opinion that it is rather a question of when and not if Israel will do something against the nuclear program, unless Iran dramatically improves cooperation with the UN).

9An OP is an Original Post. It's when someone starts a new thread like ypfoo did here.
Just go to the Middle East branch page and click on the Post New Topic button in Green in the upper left hand corner.

10I arrived in Iran at 04:00 this morning. It's now 21:20 and while I'm absolutely knackered I've had a good crack at seeing as much of Tehran today as possible. At no time whatsoever have I felt unsafe (perhaps other than when one of my taxis scraped along the side of another car but all was forgiven!) and everyone I have met has been civil and friendly and willing to go out of their way to help with directions etc. I would say you should travel here or else you'll always wonder for yourself what it's like!

11here is safe enough, but usually be careful about your wallet ,money expending and passport. nothing bad will happen in Iran.

12I'm in Iran now and have been dreaming of going here at least for ten years. But there was always something, some personal thing, money thing or I was scared that the political situation wasn't good enough.
And now, after ten years, I'm here and love it. I'm happy that I'm here. I feel very safe here and haven't had any problems. What the future brings we don't know.
I'd say go. But that's me. Good luck.
