Netanyahu Tells Obama: Israel Cannot Wait Much Longer

Netanyahu Tells Obama:
Israel Cannot Wait Much Longer
Gary Warvel Cartoon
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned against allowing Iran to develop nuclear weapons in his speech to the AIPAC Convention in Washington Monday night, vowing to never let Israel live under the shadow of annihilation or gamble with its security. Addressing concerns about the cost a military strike aimed at stopping its nuclear program, Netanyahu said: "It's about time we start talking about the cost of not stopping Iran." A nuclear-armed Iran, he warned, would provide a nuclear umbrella for terrorists and thereby increase global terrorism, could choke off the world's oil supply, and could threaten the world with nuclear terrorism. Iran, the prime minister asserted, must not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons. Israel, he explained, has been waiting for years to see if diplomacy and sanctions against Iran's nuclear program would work, but said they have not been successful.
