Economics and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett delivered one of Israe’s clearest warnings to date Saturday evening, regarding the possibility that the Jewish state would strike Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities.
Speaking on Channel Two\’s Face the Nation, Bennett said that if “a bad dea\” is struck with Iran by the P5+1 powers in the Geneva talks, an Israeli strike would become likelier.
If a deal leaves Iran with the ability to “break out” and produce nuclear weapons in a period of six weeks, “we will not be able to sit quietly,” he said.
