Halutz Reassures J Street: No Immediate Attack

Former IDF Chief of Staff Dan Halutz spoke to the left-wing J Street organization, Maariv/nrg reports. Halutz told the group that he does not believe Israeli leaders think they must attack Iran immediately, “despite all the noise.”

Halutz agreed with the Obama administration’s refusal to set “red lines,” saying that setting certain conditions for a military strik could limit America and Israel’s flexibility in responding to Iran’s nuclear program.
