Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu had strong words for Iran this week while in Russia visiting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He said; “For us, for Israel, the biggest threat against us and against global security is Iran's effort to arm itself with nuclear weapons.
Both of our countries have a common goal: We do not want to see Iran with nuclear weapons.
Israel's approach is that the international community needs to insist on its positions as expressed in UN Security Council resolutions, i.e. to halt all enrichment, to remove all enriched material, to dismantle the centrifuges and to stop building the facility in Arak.”
When Mr. Netanyahu met with Russian Jewish Community Leaders his words got even tougher…
“The Iranians deny our past and repeat their commitment to wipe the State of Israel off the map.
This reminds us of the dark regimes of the past that plotted against us first and then against all of humanity.
…They must not have nuclear weapons. And I promise you that they will not have nuclear weapons.”
Netanyahu is focusing on 'end game' as it seems that Israel's pleas are not making headway to have the International community toughen sanctions against Iran.
Israel's reinstated Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman struck an awkward line recently sating the Israel needs to look beyond the United States for Allies.
Israel's President Shimon Peres has again openly endorsed his faith in US President Barak Obama's handling of the situation with Iran.
Mr. Peres was recently credited with being the force that has, so far, held Mr. Netanyahu back from initiating an Israeli strike again Iran's Nuclear Program.
Judging from Mr. Netanyahu's recent statements, one can wonder how long International diplomacy and the voice of Israel's President will prevail.
