If the world doesn’t act to prevent Iran from attaining nuclear arms, it could be responsible for a war between Israel and the Islamic Republic, French President Nicolas Sarkozy warned on Monday night, as the Nuclear Security Summit opened in Washington.
“I would not want the world to wake up to a conflict between Israel and Iran quite simply because the international community has been incapable of acting,” the French president told CBS News.
An IAF strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities would be disastrous, he warned.
“It would be a disaster. I don’t even want to think about that possibility,” Sarkozy said. “And the best way to avoid this disaster scenario is to take measures in order to get Israel to understand that we are determined to ensure its security.”
Then comes the qualifiers:
“And Israel, furthermore, must equally make the necessary effort in order to bring about a fair and lasting peace with their Palestinian neighbors.”
Right. Israel must make that effort.
