Diplomatic Sources: Still No Decision on Attacking Iran


Israel has made no decision on attacking Iran's nuclear development program, according to diplomatic sources cited Monday by Kol Yisrael government radio. The sources cited private conversations involving Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, in which he said the Tehran government's ideology is to destroy Israel so we cannot live with a reality in which the Islamic Republic possesses nuclear weapons.

The sources added that Netanyahu prefers that the United States attack Iran but believes that Israel must not even entrust its fate in the hands of its biggest friends.
