Israel: We Can’t ‘Wait Much Longer’

Judging by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech at the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC Monday night, he wasn't convinced by President Obama's urging to be patient with Iran. Criticizing those who doubt Iran is building a nuclear weapon and invoking the Auschwitz death camp, he said, "None of us can afford to wait much longer" to act against Iran. Hours before, Obama asked Netanyahu to wait for sanctions and diplomacy to have time to work on Iran. Obama has spent the last several days urging Israel not to launch a military strike against Iran's nuclear program.
