PM Netanyahu unequivocally says that the military option against Iran is ON the table

Speaking at a Likud faction meeting, Netanyahu slams the world powers for capitulating to Iran, accusing the P5+1 negotiators of chasing a deal at any price.

Israel’s commitment to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons is more valid today than ever, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday as the world powers and Iran teetered on the verge of signing an accord Jerusalem believes ultimately will pave Iran’s path to nuclear arms.

Netanyahu’s comments at a Likud faction meeting in the Knesset were a hint that, despite the impending accord in Vienna, Israel was still not ruling out military action to keep Iran from obtaining nuclear arms.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, speaking at a conference in Jerusalem, also indicated that a military option was not off the table, saying that even though the accord “is a historic mistake” that will render Iran a “legitimate nuclear threshold country,” Israel “will continue to defend ourselves on our own.”

Most analysts believe, however, that a preemptive strike against Iran will be even less likely once an accord regulating Iran’s nuclear program for at least the next decade is reached between Tehran and the P5+1, which consists of the US, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany.
