Netanyahu Insists Military Force Needed to Stop Nuclear Iran

Israel remains a lone outpost for those who know that talking to liars is not a diplomatic solution.
All Options Are On the Table

“A diplomatic solution is better than a military option but a military option is necessary for diplomacy to succeed” to prevent Iran from obtaining access to a nuclear weapon, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told a Washington think tank.

Netanyahu spoke to the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution.

He added that he agreed with President Barack Obama’s preference for a diplomatic solution but that it will not work without a “credible military threat,” according to AFP.

Although a “threat” is not direct military force, it is difficult to infer that the Prime Minister meant anything other than the use of force since the radical Muslim world’s understanding of the word is inability or fear of using force.

The United States signed on with other Western powers in Geneva last November for a six-month deal, extended until this coming November, that provides that Iran would freeze or curtail some, but not all, of its nuclear development and that international sanctions would be eased.

“Steps must be taken to prevent further erosion of the sanctions because ultimately the sanctions remain an essential element of the international effort to compel Iran to dismantle its nuclear military infrastructure, to take apart all its centrifuges,” N Netanyahu said.

Iran now is again pulling out it latest trick from up its sleeve to buy off the West.

The Islamic Republic, whose stated goal is to establish an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East, including Israel, will be happy to help the United States fight Islamic State insurgents in Iraq if the Obama administration simply would lift “all the sanctions imposed on Iran over its nuclear activities,” said Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif this week.

    Netanyahu should tarry for awhile till there’s a pro-Israel president in d white house of america. Should he start any war with Iran now, he’s on his own without d support of Israel’s key ally as Obama’s obviously not ready to support Israel, even against Hamas which has Iran as one of its backers.

    Stay strong. Go to God in prayer and don’t let other countries undermine what your leadership decides is needed to keep Israel safe.

  16. David Cohen says:

    Muhammad Luqman Ar-razi, it bothers others because of the bombastic, belligerent way Iran talks. Iran has repeatedly threatened to annhilate Israel specifically and has also talked in a threatening way about other Countries. Iran has also been funding Terrorist groups working to destabilize other Countries.

  17. Tony Dc says:

    Yeah let’s start a war in the Middle East again, it never works and you will never ever destroy the knowledge and technical know how. Elements in the Israeli security appear us have called for diplomacy first also.
