Israel Certain Of Iranian Nuclear Threat
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu explained Tuesday that his government is certain that Iran’s intent is to become a nuclear threat to Israel.
In a Jerusalem interview that aired on CNN’s “Outfront,” Erin Burnett asked Netanyahu how he knows what Iran is doing with its nuclear program. The prime minister gave an emphatic response.
“We know,” he said. “We know, and others know, and we share what we know. This is not the case of the questions that people had about Saddam Hussein.”
Netanyahu scoffed at the possibility that the Iranians were developing nuclear technology for medical purposes, pointing to the type of technologies and underground by which they are being developed.
However, Netanyahu would not comment on the possibility of a nuclear war between Israel and Iran because he declined to confirm his nation’s capabilities.
