Biden: Israel Will Have To Accept a Nuclear Iran

Posted by iusbvision on September 1, 2008

Both Ha’aretz, a left of center Israeli news organization, is reporting that Senator Joe Biden, Obama’s VP running mate, has told Israeli officials that Israel will have to accept a nuclear Iran.

Democratic vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden was quoted Monday as telling senior Israeli officials behind closed doors that the Jewish state will have to reconcile itself to a nuclear Iran.

In the unsourced report, Army Radio also quoted Biden as saying that he opposed “opening a additional military and diplomatic front.”

Biden, chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has long been considered strongly pro-Israel. His nomination as Barack Obama’s running mate had been expected to shore up the Democrats’ strength with U.S. Jewish voters.

Army Radio said Israeli officials expressed “amazement” over the remarks attributed to him.

“Israel will have to reconcile itself with the nuclearization of Iran,” Army Radio quoted Biden as telling the unnamed officials.

If this was just one news outfit reporting this and an un-named course I would not post it, but Israeli Army Radio is saying this too…and now so is the Jerusalem Post. The Jerusalem Post also says that Biden said the same thing three years ago when talking with Israeli government officials”

Security officials expressed concern Monday over statements reportedly made by US Democratic vice presidential candidate Joseph Biden regarding Iran’s nuclear program.

Army Radio reported that the Delaware senator was heard saying in closed conversations with Jerusalem officials three years ago that he was firmly opposed to an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

I get a shudder when I think of history’s consequences of when evils such as Iran’s leadership gets appeased.

UPDATE: I see beat me on this story. What can I say, they are good.

UPDATE II: Biden’s campaign says that the report is a lie spread by partisan opponents? Umm Ha’aretz, Israeli Army Radio and the JPost are partisans now?
