FROM Jack Cafferty:
Israel isn't buying into the new U.S. intelligence report on Iran.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says the conclusion that Iran has given up its nuclear weapons program will not change Israel's view that Iran is still trying to develop
Olmert apparently told a closed meeting of his Security Cabinet that Israel has no reason to change what it's believed all along... that Iran continues to pursue nuclear weapons, is developing weapons and rockets, and enriching uranium.
For years, Israel has been calling on the international community to act to stop Iran's nuclear program. This has led some to believe that Israel might attack Iran's nuclear facilities. Keep in mind, although Iran insists its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for Israel to be "wiped off the map."
Olmert says Israel would work with the International Atomic Energy Agency to expose Iran's plan to develop nuclear weapons.
Meanwhile, the chairman of the U.S. joint chiefs of staff Michael Mullen, is in Israel for talks with leaders there. No surprise that Iran is among the subjects expected to be discussed.
Here’s the question: When it comes to Iran's nuclear program, whom do you believe: Israel or the U.S.?
