I totally agree with your Oct. 4 editorial, “Nothing to laugh at.”
You included a quote by Israel’s prime minister: “At this late hour,” Netanyahu said, “there is only one way to peacefully prevent Iran from getting atomic bombs. That’s by placing a clear red line on Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Red lines don’t lead to war; red lines prevent warâ€¦. In fact, it’s the failure to place red lines that has often invited aggression.”
At the U.N., our president said “Make no mistake, a nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained. It would threaten the elimination of Israel, the security of Gulf nations, and the stability of the global economy.”
Israel’s prime minister and our president are virtually on the same page. It should not be difficult for the two leaders to come up with a joint statement telling the world and, most importantly, Iran our position on a nuclear armed Iran. This action would clearly be the best chance to peacefully prevent a nuclear armed Iran.
There should be no “daylight” between America and Israel.
