Israeli transportation minister Shaul Mofaz has reiterated his previous threats against Iran, saying Israel must be ready to act. In an interview with The Jerusalem Post published late Thursday, Mofaz said sanctions were not effective in halting Iran's nuclear program and "there will be no choice but to attack Iran to halt the Iranian nuclear program." "Israel cannot let Iran get to the point of nuclearization," Mofaz said. "All options are on the table. If there won't be a choice other than a nuclear Iran or a military option, it's clear what our decision has to be."
"The strategy against Iran has not changed and it will continue to be led by the United States," Mofaz said, adding Israel could not let Iran 'threaten the entire world.' Mofaz had told Yediot Aharonot on June 6 that Israel would attack Iran if it did not cease nuclear development. (Press TV)
