Attack Iran To Stop Its Nuclear Plans

Israel Threatens To Strike
The warning, from Israeli transport minister Shaul Mofaz, is the bluntest threat yet against Tehran from any member of prime minister Ehud Olmert's administration. In an interview with the mass-circulation Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper on Friday, Mr Mofaz said that Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - who has called for Israel to be wiped off the map - "would disappear before Israel does". "If Iran continues with its programme for developing nuclear weapons, we will attack it. The sanctions are ineffective," said Mr Mofaz, referring to pressure by the United Nations security council to end Iran's disputed programme of uranium enrichment. "Attacking Iran, in order to stop its nuclear plans, will be unavoidable."
