Peres denies he's opposed to attack on Iran

In an earlier post, I reported that President Shimon Peres is planning to tell US President Obama that Israel will not attack Iran before the US elections. I noted that Peres' position is that of a figurehead, and that while he cannot make policy for the State of Israel, he can make Prime Minister Netanyahu's life miserable, by giving President Obama a club to use on Netanyahu.

Now, in a speech to the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Peres denies that he is opposed to an attack on Iran.
President Shimon Peres on Thursday said that Iran is the biggest threat on Israel. "The State of Israel is an independent state and has the right to defend itself. When we say 'all options are on the table' we really mean it," he said at the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

"Imagine that Iran wins, no country could prevent it from freely exporting terror or stop it dominating the world's economy. Iran with a nuclear bomb is a catastrophe," Peres warned.
Well, yes. But what is he going to say to Obama?

Keep in mind that if Israel has a nuclear capability, it's Peres who is responsible for it (yes, really). So is he going to maintain a united front with Netanyahu and Barak?

What could go wrong?

why are you so messed up that you write posts that say nothing and imply fantasies on account of your not knowing anything? why would you mislead the Klal Yisroel like this? yesterdays post etc...is worse because it communicated to Klal Yisroel fantasies of the sort that causes them hysteria aside from being fiction. Why is it so important to you to be a part of the Republican propaganda machine? you would make somewhat of an interesting phd

The opening session of the Board of Governors meeting will feature addresses by @YuliEdelstein, @AmbShapiro, and @NatanSharansky. #JAFIBOG

Wouldn't it be amazing to hear Natan Sharansky speak out against creeping socialism/ marcuse marxism? And that that philosophy is NOT found in the Torah? I finally had the lightbulb moment of realizing that Israel really may not have come out of the collectivist initial philosophy. Ugh. If people like Natan, with their negative experience with the USSR don't speak out (or heaven forbid, I've misunderstood thinking they don't support socialism), then I think the whole effort is going to sink.
