Erdan: PM Knows American Attack the Better Option
Minister Gilad Erdan criticized Kadima head MK Shaul Mofaz on Wednesday over his statements saying it would be better if America, not Israel, led an attack on Iran’s nuclear program. “Do you think the Prime Minister needs Mofaz to explain to him that it would be better if the Americans led in an attack?” Erdan said on Kol Yisrael radio.
“Of course it would be better,” he continued. “But we have to ask ourselves what would happen in a case where the Iranian regime is very close to nuclear capability, and we need to present the public not just with the price of attacking, but also with the price of a situation where Iran is threatening a nuclear attack every day.”
