Thu, 01/10/2008 - 16:08 - Wire Services - US President George W. Bush promised Israel's opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu that the United States will join the Jewish state in a nuclear strike against Iran, Israel Radio reported today.
Former Prime Minister Netanyahu, opposition Likud party's hardline chairman who opposes the US-backed Annapolis peace process, reiterated to President Bush his stance, that a pre-emptive nuclear strike against Iran's nuclear installations was the only way to stop the Islamic nation's nuclear weapons ambitions.
"I told him my position and Bush agreed," Netanyahu told Israel Radio.
During their 45-minute meeting at King David hotel in Jerusalem Netanyahu also told Bush that "Jerusalem belongs to the Jewish people and will remain under Israeli sovereignty for eternity."
President Bush issued a stark warning to Iran over Strait of Hormuz incident, saying that "all options are on the table to protect our assets."

Gee, one wonders, when an "elected" President of a 70 million people, denies the Holocaust, and repeatedly declares that Nataniyahu's own country, 1200km away from Isran;s borders, it should be erased from the map. Worse yet, when that little Ahmadi-midget defies the wish of the international community, and tries to back up his claims with Nuclear arms. Is anyone still surprised that Israel will do everything it can to protect its citizens against nuclear holocaust by the hand of some religious fanatics?
If the Mullahs in Tehran do not wish to drag Iran and the rest of the region into an abyss, then they should not give other countries like Israel the reason to do just that.
The whole issue of regional security in the ME & Gulf region, has become a major point for concern since the Mullahs in Tehran started with their ominous Nuclear program. And not because Israel's (purported) nuclear arsenal going back to early 60's.
