Peres: Israel should stay out of Iran conflict

Kadima MK Shimon Peres said Wednesday that Israel should stay out of the Iran conflict, saying that if Israel were to take preemptive military measures it would isolate itself in the campaign against the country. Peres told Army Radio that Israel should to be patient and allow the US to manage the situation. "The US has placed the Iran (nuclear) issue at the top of its agenda and, despite the worrying state of affairs, Israel doesn't need to get involved," said Peres. "The Iranians are going too far with their provocations and are turning the whole world against them," added the former prime minister.
