Netanyahu speaking to Jewish community leaders in Moscow.

Speaking to an audience of Jewish community leaders in Moscow on Thursday, Netanyahu stated that he guarantees that Iran will not have nuclear weapons, according to a report in Makor Rishon.

Israel has been has been threatening, almost explicitly, that any agreement signed with Iran will not restrict Israel from acting unilaterally to prevent Iran from achieving nuclear breakout capability.

Netanyahu’s remarks came in the footsteps of Washington’s overwhelming silence in response to the latest Antisemitic remarks emanating from Iran.

Netanyahu expects that an agreement will be signed in Geneva, if not this week, then the next.

During Netanyahu’s meeting with Russian President Putin, he could not get Putin to back off from supporting the Geneva deal. But Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Netanyahu that Russia will not allow Iran to have nuclear weapons.

A senior Israeli official told Makor Rishon that Barack Obama is interested in Iran not having nuclear weapons while he sits in the White House, but it doesn’t bother him if they are at the edge of the breakout point.

The official reiterated that Israel’s position is that Iran must remove all capabilities for making nuclear weapons, while the US government only wants Iran to not assemble the weapon itself.

In the meantime, Iran is demanding the right to continue to enrich uranium for “civilian purposes”, and wait until the world is distracted with some other problem, to put the bombs together.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon has been warning, during an official visit to Canada, that Iran would use ‘dirty bombs’ in its terror war against Western targets.

White House officials are saying that Israeli demands that Iran stop all enrichment would lead to war, according to a JTA report. The report says that given the choice of no enrichment, the White House believes Iranians would choose to build a bomb.

Which is exactly what Iran is going to try to do either way.

Opposing the White House is Senator Mark Kirk (R), who said that that Netanyahu’s assessment is correct, and that increasing, not reducing, sanctions at this point is what will force Iran to physically halt their nuclear weapons program.

  1. Because of Obamas weakness and ridiculous behaviour,Israel will be forced to hit Irans nuclear sites in order to nuetralise them,Israel will be seen as the aggressor by Countries throughout the world and she will find herself becoming more and more isolated.Eventually she will find herself all alone with no where to go for help.God will use this situation in order to achieve his great plan to get his chosen people to accept his Son Jesus as their Messiah.In the end the Bible says that all Israel will be saved.God bless Israel and the Jewish people.

  2. Unfortunately, Israel is going to need either the U.S. or some other country to hit Iran. Even IDF soldiers talking admit this. I think that Mossad should hit the nuke facilities covertly, while also taking out Iranian military runways so their jets can not retaliate. Just my five cents worth.

  3. Zabele – Israel doesn't need anyone to take out Iranian defenses – it has hit targets that have threatened her security over and over again – Frankel – Please do not put Bibi in the same class with progressives like Kerry, Clinton and Obama
    McArthur – Jesus or Yosele as we like to call him, has always been part of our Jewish Family. XXX
