If temporary agreement turns permanent, Jerusalem might be forced to act, says Netanyahu confidante Tzachi Hanegbi
(SOURCE) The interim deal struck last weekend between six world powers and Iran actually increases the likelihood of an Israeli strike against the Islamic Republic’s nuclear facilities, a lawmaker close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday, contradicting the common wisdom that the Geneva agreement would prevent Jerusalem from attacking in the coming six months.
“The [military] option needs to exist. If you ask me whether there is the possibility that we will actually get to a situation in which we will be forced to realize that option, the chances actually increased,” said MK Tzachi Hanegbi (Likud). “Because if we see this current agreement today, and fear this would turn into the final agreement, the chances that we will be forced to act, when the day comes — and hopefully it won’t come — but if and when it comes we will thank all previous prime ministers, including Ehud Olmert, for preparing for that option.”
