Kerry Warns Israel: Strike on Iran Would Be “Enormous Mistake”


kerrySecretary of State John Kerry said today it would be a tremendous mistake if Israel decided to take unilateral military action against Iran over its nuclear program in the future.

Kerry was asked in an NBC “Today” show interview if the nuclear deal reached last week between would make it more likely that Israel might attempt a military or cyber attack on Tehran. “That’d be an enormous mistake, a huge mistake with grave consequences for Israel and for the region, and I don’t think it’s necessary,” Kerry said.

Kerry refused to directly answer a question in the hearing as to whether the US would have to defend Iran from an Israeli cyber attack due to the deal, saying instead “I don’t see any way possible that we will be in conflict with Israel with respect to what we might want to do there, and I think we just have to wait until we get to that point.”

  1. The threat of nuclear attack from Iran is so dangerous for Israel, so genocidal, that Israel would be justified in taking extraordinary steps to protect herself and her civilians. There is an unwritten rule that countries do not attack or assassinate the leaders of other countries. But in this case, Israel’s strike must be to wipe out the imams and ayatollahs who keep calling for and threatening total destruction of Israel. Israel is and will be blamed for whatever they do anyway. At least let it get blamed but survive. So the attack must be both on the Iranian leaders and on the the Iranian nuclear and military installations.
