US Vice-President, Joe Biden, has issued a high-level warning to Israel’s new Government that it would be “ill-advised” to launch a military strike against Iran.
Mr Biden said in a CNN interview today, he did not believe the newly installed Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, would take such a step. (Then you don’t know the Jews, Joey) Even so, his comment underscored a gap between the conservative new Israeli Government and the Obama White House on a series of questions, including the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and Iran.
Although the Obama Administration has made a series of recent overtures to Iran, the Israelis have grown more confrontational out of concern that the Islamic republic’s increasing nuclear know-how could one day become a greater threat. (Of course they are, they know Obama is a Muslim)
Mr Netanyahu signalled several times during his election campaign that he would not tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran. “I promise that if I am elected, Iran will not acquire nuclear arms,” he said in one appearance, “and this implies everything necessary to carry this out.” BRISBANE TIMES
(And we know from history that Israel does what it says it will do)
Back in September, Biden told Israel to get used to a NUCLEAR IRAN
September 01, 2008 Haartez, the left wing Israeli newspaper, quotes Joe Biden as telling Israeli leaders in effect to like it or lump it when it comes to Iran getting nukes: Democratic vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden was quoted Monday as telling senior Israeli officials behind closed doors that the Jewish state will have to reconcile itself to a nuclear Iran. In the unsourced report, Army Radio also quoted Biden as saying that he opposed “opening a additional military and diplomatic front.” Army Radio said Israeli officials expressed “amazement” over the remarks attributed to him. “Israel will have to reconcile itself with the nuclearization of Iran,” Army Radio quoted Biden as telling the unnamed officials.
