Israel will not outsource its vital security interests to anyone, "not even to
our closes and most trusted allies," Defense Minister Ehud Barak said in London
Speaking to the British Israel Communications and Research
Center, Barak, addressing Iran's uranium enrichment program, said, "All options
are on the table to prevent Iran from crossing the point of no return. We expect
all those who say it to mean it; we mean it." The defense minister signaled that
Jerusalem would not rely on US assurances to prevent Iran from becoming a
nuclear weapons state.
