Vice PM Yaalon Disappointed By Obama’s Hesitation On Iran


JewishPress Logo

Vice Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon expressed his frustration with the Obama administration on Sunday, citing “election-year considerations” as the reason for its hesitance in imposing tougher sanctions sought by US Congress.

“In the United States, the Senate passed a resolution, by a majority of 100-to-1, to impose these sanctions, and in the U.S. administration there is hesitation for fear of oil prices rising this year, out of election-year considerations,” Yaalon said. “In that regard, this is certainly a disappointment, for now.”

Yaalon highlighted that France and Britain “are taking a very firm stand and understand sanctions must be imposed immediately.”

    The war with iran will start soon enough. A perceived american muslim president attacking a muslim country there does not appear, any rush on that. If america attacks iran it could be said that it was done to protect arab income from oil. America most likely will let israel in on the attack. Every missile fired at israel will be one less that is fired at a major american asset (aircraft carrier). The only solution is war anything else is wishful thinking. BEST WISHES (BE SAFE) CB
