RAMALLAH, July 9 (JMCC) - Israel
is not on the verge of a military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, said US Senator John McCain Wednesday, reports the Washington Post
. McCain and several other visiting senators spoke to the media after meeting with Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak
I don't believe we are at the point of making that kind of decision, nor is the Israeli government, given the state that Iran is in now as far as the development of their nuclear weapons is concerned, McCain said in response to a question on whether he would support an Israeli military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities.Read
Neither McCain nor Graham gave blanket support for an Israeli attack in the future. McCain said it was impossible for him to say whether he would back such an operation because it would be dictated by so many different circumstances. Graham said he wouldn't support an Israeli strike now because there's many options still available to us. Lieberman did not address the question directly.
