Israeli Defense Minister talks tough on Iran

Israeli Defense Minister talks tough on Iran

Israel's defense minister says as long as Iran poses a threat to Israel with its nuclear program, all options are on the table.
That's a reference to a possible Israeli attack.
Ehud Barak was speaking Monday before The Foreign Press Association, which represents journalists covering Israel and the Palestinian territories.
Israel and the West suspect Iran is trying obtain nuclear weapons. Iran insists its nuclear program is peaceful.
Recently there has been a growing chorus of Israeli ex-security officials speaking out against an Israeli strike on Iran.
Barak said, "I believe it is well understood in Washington, D.C., as well as in Jerusalem that as long as there is an existential threat to our people, all options to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons should remain on the table."
