Israel Disses Medvedev Comment

I told you that the Reuters story, reporting that Israel had assured Russia's President Medvedev that it wouldn't attack Iran, was bizzare.

Antiwar reports:
Several high profile Israeli officials publicly castigated Russian President Dmitry Medvedev today for the later’s interview on CNN’s GPS with Fareed Zakaria in which President Medvedev claimed to have received assurances from Israeli President Shimon Peres that his nation would not attack Iran.

Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon hit out at the comments, saying President Medvedev “is certainly not authorized to speak for us, and there is no change whatsoever in Israel’s policy.” Ayalon added that Medvedev must have “misunderstood” what Peres said.

Israeli military chief Lt. General Gabi Ashkenazi also chimed in today, insisting that Iran with nuclear technology was a threat to the entire planet and insisting that the nation had not abandoned the idea of attacking Iran at some point in the near future.

  1. CYA for Russia in the eyes of Iran. I suppose they will feign shock when Israel does it.

    The real shock will be the huge mistake it will be to bomb Iran- if you think the Socialists are playing with fire when it comes to the Federal Reserve, wait til Israel really f*cks sh*t up. We'll be lucky if the fallout doesn't spread around the world.
