Israeli Leader Suggests His Country Cannot Rely On US To Act Against Iran Over Nuclear Program [View all]

JERUSALEM ó Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insinuated in an interview published Friday that Israel cannot entirely rely on the U.S. to act against Iranís suspect nuclear program, a sign that the Israeli leader is not backing down from the sharp rhetoric that strained relations this week with the Obama administration.

Netanyahu has been arguing in recent weeks that Iran is getting close to acquiring nuclear weapons capability, a claim Iran denies. He has been pushing the U.S. to commit to the circumstances under which the U.S. would lead a strike on Iranís nuclear facilities. Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders have repeatedly hinted that if the United States does not attack, Israel will.

ďI hear those who say we should wait until the last minute. But what if the U.S. doesnít act? Itís a question that must be asked,Ē Netanyahu told Israel Hayom, in an interview marking the Jewish New Year.

The paper, a free mass-circulation daily, is funded by Netanyahuís billionaire Jewish-American supporter Sheldon Adelson.
