Obama warns Netanyahu Over Iran attack

May 14, 2009

(ChattahBox) — It’s pretty clear the Obama administration has big concerns that Israel could lose patience and act against Iran who seems determined to build a nuclear weapon. According to Israeli paper Haaretz, President Obama has sent a message to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demanding that Israel not surprise the U.S. with an Israeli military operation against Iran. The message was conveyed by a senior American official who met in Israel with Netanyahu, just days before a White House summit, where Obama will meet with Netanyahu face to face, next Monday. It seems apparent that Obama is disturbed by the positions Netanyahu expressed before his election where he said: “If elected I pledge that Iran will not attain nuclear arms, and that includes whatever is necessary for this statement to be carried out.” After taking office, on Holocaust Memorial Day Netanyahu said: “We will not allow Holocaust-deniers to carry out another holocaust.” Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak have also expressed though, that thry do not oppose American dialogue with Tehran, but believe it should be conducted within a limited window of time.
