Ariel Sharon played down speculation that Israel could attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. “Israel is not leading this struggle,” the Israeli prime minister told Fox News on Wednesday after meeting U.S. officials in Washington. “And though I hear from time to time that Israel is planning to hit Iran, that’s not what we think about. Of course we take all precautions and all the steps to defend ourselves. But it’s not that Israel should give the answer to the international problem.”
