Prime Minister benjamin Netanyahu is getting restless. What would happen if Barack Obama was re-elected president and decided not to reach for a kleenex every time Bibi sneezed? Deputy Foreign Minister, Danny Ayalon, told Israel Radio it was time to get serious about Iran. He wants the five permanent members of the Security Council, plus Germany, to cease discussions with Iran. It is time, says Danny, to “declare today that the talks have failed… and that “all options are on the table.”
Netanyahu has urged the UN Secretary General not to go to Tehran for further discussions. The great British PM, Winston Churchill, who was not afraid to go to war, always said a good leader understands, ”jaw, jaw, not war, war.” War is the last resort.
Perhaps, if Israel had compromised and aided Palestinians to have their own nation, Iran might think twice about initiating a war in which both Muslims and Jews would die.
