Ex-Israeli minister: "Israel" silent about Iran nuclear activity
A former Israeli minister criticizes the Israeli government for being uninvolved when it comes to the Iranian nuclear deal.
Former Israeli occupation minister Yuval Stienitz said, "Everything is so terrible in the nuclear agreement," "Israel" Hayom newspaper reported.
Stienitz went on to criticize the Israeli government for being uninvolved when it comes to the Iranian nuclear deal.
"We are involved in Ukraine, which is a distant war that Israel has no connection to, and in the main issue, we are uninvolved," he said.
The former minister also accused the Israeli government of being "silent" about Iran's nuclear program: "The Iranian nuclear program is ticking. When it comes to the most critical issue since the establishment of the state, or at least since 1967, the government is silent – the silence of the lambs."
"Israel" Hayom denied the Islamic Revolution's Guard Corps (IRGC) strike on an Israeli "strategic center" in Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan, claiming the IRGC targeted a US site in response to the assassination of two IRGC soldiers in Syria.
The daily reported that Israeli officials "are shocked by the lack of American response," underlining that "we cannot rule out that the leak of the Israeli attack on the drone base on Feb. 14 originated in the US – again, to provide an excuse for their inaction and to motivate the Iranians."
It also estimated that the US can operate militarily in Iran, but cannot operate in Ukraine, in fear of a third world war.
Former Israeli occupation minister Yuval Stienitz said, "We constantly talk about a war that should and could have been prevented in Europe, and are silent about Iran."
He believes Prime Minister Naftali Bennett's "efforts to mediate between Russia and Ukraine to end hostilities is not good for Israel."
According to Hayom, "In American public opinion, Israel is beginning to be perceived as bad both in the Iranian and Ukrainian contexts."
It concluded that "in the Ukraine war, there are no winners. Except for one: China. And there will be one loser: Israel. This is the planned work of the Biden administration and its cynical policies towards Ukraine, the Middle East, and Israel."
