Netanyahu Raises Possibility
That the US Won't Attack Iran
Indicates Israel Can't Wait
In an interview with an Israeli news outlet, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu raised the question as to whether or not President Obama might order military action against Iran's nuclear facilities. Netanyahu's comments:
"I hear those who say we should wait until the last minute. But what if the U.S. doesn't act? It's a question that must be asked," Netanyahu told Israel Hayom, in an interview marking the Jewish New Year.
The Prime Minister continued...
"I am guided not by the elections in United States but by the centrifuges in Iran. If the Iranians were to say `stop' and cease enriching uranium and preparing a bomb until the end of the elections in the United States then I could wait."
