Blaze Poll: Should President Obama Visit Israel to Prevent or Delay a War With Iran?

“Tell its leadership – and, more important, its people – that preventing a nuclear Iran is a U.S. interest."

Left-wing Israelis protest in Tel Aviv on August 16, 2012, against Israel mounting a military strike on Iran. Israel believes the Islamic republic is trying to develop a military nuclear capability under the guise of its civilian programme which it says would pose an existential threat to the Jewish state, while opponents of an Israeli attack say that around 500 academics and retired military personnel have signed a petition calling on air force pilots to refuse to carry out a unilateral strike.Credit: AFP/Getty Images

The former head of Israel's military intelligence agency is asking President Barack Obama to visit his country in an effort to prevent or at least delay any Israeli military action against Iran.

Amos Yadlin's pitch was published in the Washington Post as an op-ed Saturday. He was quite clear, stating:

“The U.S. president should visit Israel and tell its leadership – and, more important, its people – that preventing a nuclear Iran is a U.S. interest, and if we have to resort to military action, we will.”

The Obama visit was part of a five-step plan that Yadlin presented in his piece. Read the entire proposal here.
