With less than 2 weeks before a new Prime Minister taking office in Israel, and with Mr. Netanyahu leading in the polls, a showdown with Iran is almost certain to take place in the near future.
From the Jerusalem Post:
Likud Chairman and Opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's leading candidate for prime minister, said Saturday that Iran "will not be armed with a nuclear weapon."
In an interview with Channel 2, Netanyahu said if elected prime minister his first mission will be to thwart the Iranian nuclear threat. He called Iran the greatest danger to Israel and to all humanity.
When asked if stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions included a military strike, he replied: "It includes everything that is necessary to make this statement come true."
