Israel: Military option still on the table

Jerusalem Post, 21 Sept. 2009: Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon insisted Monday that the military option against Iran was still on the table, rejecting comments made by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev last week and published Sunday.

Ayalon told the Reuters news agency that Medvedev’s statement did not guarantee Israel would not attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, should the international diplomatic push to stymie its nuclear aspirations prove futile.

“It is certainly not a guarantee. I don’t think that, with all due respect, the Russian president is authorized to speak for Israel and certainly we have not taken any option off the table.”
