Netanyahu Hints Israel May Go It Alone, in Response to Obama
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu responded Sunday to U.S. President Barack Obama's speech at the AIPAC convention, and may have hinted at Israel's determination to go it alone against Iran, should it have no choice.
"I also appreciated the fact that he made clear that when it comes to a nuclear armed Iran, containment is simply not an option, and equally in my judgment, perhaps most important of all, I appreciated the fact that he said that Israel must be able to defend itself, by itself, against any threat. I appreciate all his statements and I look forward to discussing them further with President Obama tomorrow."
The fact that Netanyahu placed the most stress on his "appreciation" of Obama's recognition that Israel must be able "to defend itself, by itself," may indicate that he is thinking about acting against Iran's nuclear program without waiting for the U.S. to do so.
