An Israeli official has cited a 2007 airstrike on a Syrian nuclear reactor — which Israel has never publicly acknowledged — to justify the Jewish state’s right to launch a unilateral attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities if the U.S. refrains from action.
Turkey's prime minister said Monday that Israel's raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla last year was "cause for war" but added that his country showed "patience" and refrained from taking any action.
"President [George W.] Bush did not agree to the United States taking part [in the 2007 raid], but in any event the right step was taken," Environment Minister Gilad Erdan said Monday on Israel Radio.
"We hope those radical movements that controlled the protests that we saw last weekend do not represent the 85 million Egyptians in Egypt," Erdan said.
