Israel Ambassador Denies ‘Even Contemplating’ Iran Strike


michael-orenIsrael’s ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, said yesterday that “we are far from even contemplating such things right now” when asked about reports of Israeli preparations for a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Appearing on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” he said that “we are further reassured now that [Obama’s] end of the year deadline” for reassessing relations with Iran “has been moved up to September.”

Assessing the post-election reform movement in Iran, Oren said that “We know that certainly the Iranian people and even the Iranian leadership is not as monochromatic as we thought,” but added, “what concerns us at the end of the day is not so much a change in personalities but a change in policies.”
