Netanyahu Tells VP Harris Israel Will Never Allow Iran To Obtain Nukes:
In a Thursday phone call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pressed Vice President Kamala Harris on preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, among other regional security concerns, amid a series of conversations that Harris has held with world leaders.
Naturally many are asking why the VP would be doing a job that the President of the United States was elected to do. Among many likely scenarios (some very worrisome), Politico attempted to answer this in a recent report, saying "After insisting for the last few months that she didn’t need a clear-cut portfolio in the Biden administration, Vice President Kamala Harris is now trying to carve out a niche in foreign policy, with the president’s encouragement."
And of course, this is further due to expectations that Biden will likely be too old or in declining health by the time a 2024 bid is on the horizon. "Biden wants Harris to catch up and has urged her to engage with foreign leaders directly and develop her own rapport with key U.S. partners," Politico wrote. "Another, more strategic reason for the encouragement: as the heir apparent to the Democratic Party—especially if Biden, who is 78 years old, doesn’t run for re-election—Harris needs to bulk up her foreign policy expertise, and fast." --->READ MORE HERE
Israel Updating Plans To Attack Iran, Ready To 'Act Independently':
Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz told Fox News in an interview published Friday that the Israeli military is updating its plans to strike Iran’s nuclear program and is prepared to act independently.
Gantz falsely portrayed Iran’s recent steps to advance its civilian nuclear program as the Islamic Republic racing to develop a bomb, something he said Israel would stop. "If the world stops them before, it’s very much good. But if not, we must stand independently and we must defend ourselves by ourselves," he said.
Gantz cited nuclear activity that Iran is willing to quickly reverse if the US lifts sanctions and returns to the nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA. But Gantz, like most Israeli officials, is opposed to a revival of the agreement. --->READ MORE HERE
