Norman Podhoretz Urges Israel to Bomb Iran

Conservative commentator Norman Podhoretz wrote in The Wall Street Journal late last week that Israel should attack Iran now to prevent it from gaining access to a nuclear weapon.

Israel can “put at least a temporary halt, and conceivably even a permanent one, to the relentless Iranian quest for the bomb” he wrote.

“The Obama administration tells us that the interim agreement puts Iran on a track that will lead to the abandonment of its quest for a nuclear arsenal. But the Iranians are jubilant because they know that the only abandonment going on is of our own effort to keep them from getting the bomb,” Podhoretz added.

“Adherents of the new consensus would have us believe that only two choices remain: a war to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons or containment of a nuclear Iran — with containment the only responsible option. I remain convinced that containment is impossible, from which it follows that the two choices before us are not war vs. containment but a conventional war now or a nuclear war later.”

He declared that “the only hope rests with Israel. If, then, Israel fails to strike now, Iran will get the bomb.”
