Bolton: Israel Should Attack Iran Now

Bolton: Israel Should Attack Iran Now

By    |   Wednesday, 17 July 2013 03:01 PM EDT

Israel is in "greater danger" of nuclear attack with every day that goes by and it doesn't attack Iran, said John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

"Israel should have attacked Iran yesterday. Every day that goes by puts Israel in greater danger, every day Iran makes more progress," Bolton told The Jerusalem Post.

"I can understand why Israel wants us to take action, but the longer Israel waits for something that is not going to happen, the greater the danger Israel is in," said the senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

While the Obama administration indicated that the U.S. would not resupply weapons to Israel to attack Iran, Bolton said, he believes that the U.S. would take the measures necessary to argue that Israel was acting in self-defense.

Bolton's interview came a day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran was "approaching the red line," a warning that Israel could attack Iran as a last resort to prevent it from gaining nuclear-weapons capability, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Bolton said he believes the election of Hassan Rouhani as Iranian president will only lull the U.S. into a false sense of security that the country can be negotiated with to stop its nuclear program.

"The idea that Rouhani will negotiate seriously shows that this administration is on a different planet," Bolton said, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Rouhani, Bolton said, repeatedly had boasted about how he "suckered" the European Union during negotiations. If Israel attacks Iran, Israel and the U.S. must be politically aligned and sharing intelligence, he said.
