Israel’s defense minister called for diplomatic pressure on Iran to come clean about its nuclear program. “The way to act, the most acceptable way for us and the Americans, is to use the diplomatic track to bring this issue to the Security Council and issue sanctions,” Shaul Mofaz told Israel Radio on Monday after meeting U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Previously, Israeli officials had hinted that the Jewish state could resort to military force to stop Iran from getting the bomb, saying “all options are open.”
