#1 Hopefully their target list includes the membership of the Guardian Council, and a lot of Nutjob's cronies.

#3 A long time ago, I suggested that Israel might have best results by smuggling in some container to the Iranian underground facilities, that would soundlessly blow a liter of some hyper-lethal contaminant around.

A lot of cargo goes into and out of those facilities every day, and it is unlikely they have top notch security.

#4 There is a precedent for this. In the early 60s, Egypt's Gamal Abdel Nasser hired some German rocketeers and set them to work developing ballistic missiles that could threaten Israel. The techno-mercenaries were mostly third stringers but they allegedly included the great Eugen Sänger, who denied his involvement. The program was cancelled suddenly in 1963. The given reason is usually that the Soviets had agreed to supply Frog and Scud rockets to Egypt but this did not happen until several years later.
There have been many rumors over the years that the real reason was a covert campaign of sabotage and harassment by the Israelis. It is alleged that the project's German employees and suppliers kept finding their lives difficult for various reasons, and even impossible in a few cases.
