Biden: Israel won’t hit Iran

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Vice President Joe Biden said he did not believe Israel would strike Iran.

"I don’t believe that Prime Minister Netanyahu would do that," Biden told CNN when he was asked about concerns that Israel would hit Iran unilaterally in a bid to end the Islamic Republic’s suspected nuclear weapons program. "I think he would be ill-advised to do that. And so my level of concern is no different than it was a year ago."
