Israel: Allies won't oppose Iran strike

Israel: Allies won't oppose Iran strike
Quote:Israel's deputy prime minister Shaul Mofaz has warned that the Israeli regime's allies would not oppose a military strike against Iran.

"If Israel is attacked by missiles, we will not fold our arms and our allies will not be opposed," said the Israeli top strategic negotiator with the US.

Mofaz expressed concern over what he described as an Iran-led radical front in the Middle East 'gaining more and more power each year.'

"And we have to find the weaknesses and change this situation because we see more influence of Iran in our region," Mofaz said, adding that this was the main topic of his meeting with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Mofaz, who is in Washington as part of the US-Israeli strategic dialogue on mutual security concerns, said further talks will be held on the issue of UN Security Council sanctions imposed on Iran.

"I believe our policy about Iran is in the right direction, but we have to check the effectiveness of the sanctions so far," he told reporters in Washington.

On his way to Washington on Monday, Mofaz claimed that 'all the options are on the table in order to prevent Iran from attaining nuclear weaponry'.

Israel insists that the UN Security Council sanctions, issued under pressure from bullying powers on claims that the Islamic Republic is seeking nuclear weaponry, are not bold enough.

This is while Tehran has repeatedly denied allegations of pursuing nuclear arms, maintaining that as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty, the country is entitled to the civilian use of nuclear technology.
