Meridor: No break in US ties, Iran strike babble unhelpful
September 3, 2012 14:39

Intelligence Minister Dan Meridor said he does not sense any rupture in Israel's ties with the United States and stressed that it is very important to maintain Washington's support, as well as that of the American public, in an interview with Israel Radio on Monday.

In the interview, Meridor denounced the public babbling regarding a possible preemptive strike on Iranian nuclear facilities as unnecessary and perhaps even beneficial to the Iranians.

He said further that the international effort against Iran was taking its toll on the Iranians, who now fear enriching uranium to a higher, bomb-grade level because of the knowledge they will encounter very strong resistance if they cross the line towards acquiring a nuclear bomb.

He concluded by saying that the international community needed to increase the pressure on Iran by strengthening the sanctions against it.
