Report: Netanyahu Promised Obama No Strike on Iran Before U.S. Election


Israel’s Ma’ariv newspaper reports that President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came to an agreement last month that any possible military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities undertaken by Israel will come after the U.S. Presidential election in November.

According to the Ma’ariv report, Netanyahu was willing to give sanctions and diplomacy more time to bring the Iranian government in line with international expectations over the country’s nuclear program.



  1. Obama wants as much quiet as possble before the elections so he can think and have “more flexibility” after the elections

  2. If true, both Netanyahu and Obama should be removed from office for allowing political considerations to interfere with national defense.
