Netanyahu tells Obama no decision has been made either way on whether or not to bomb Iranian nuclear sites
In a meeting between Benjamin Netanyahu and Barack Obama the Israeli Premier told the US President that Israel had made no plans on whether or not to attack Iran and it’s nuclear sites but stated that Israel retained the right to use military power.
Washington fears that Israel could rush into an attack on Iran and Obama fears that a war during the build up to the US presidential election in the autumn could damage his chances of being re-elected. Netanyahu however has continued to insist that Israel has the right to self defense and that a nuclear armed Iran could spell the end for the Jewish state, Netanyahu later address the highly influential and hugely pro-israel AIPAC said:
None of us can afford to wait much longer. As prime minister of Israel, I will never let my people live in the shadow of annihilation.
This to me doesn’t sound like the words of a man prepared to give peace a chance for much longer.
