It's not MY analysis, it's based off of what experts have said in speculation regarding the export ban. And yes, while Israel has done strikes on Iran before, and may again, the situation is different: Now Iran is at a stage where they could actually fight back, whereas before, when Israel last striked, they were way behind. And all that aside, the F-22 WOULD be a huge advantage, that you can't deny.
Anyhow, regarding this thread, I still say we should shop around before blindly going for a US fighter. The Europeans and Russians make very good ones these days, and even the Japanese are working on their own 5th generation fighter.
