Benny Gantz, the Israeli defense minister, said in an interview last week that his country stands ready to act alone if Iran continues to accelerate its nuclear program, and the country is updating its plans to strike Tehran’s nuclear facilities.
The remarks come as President Biden’s team is considering rejoining the 2015 nuclear deal, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which former President Trump abandoned and criticized as a gift for Tehran. 
“The Iranian nuclear escalation must be stalled,” Gantz said. “If not, we must stand independently and we must defend ourselves by ourselves.”
The Associated Press reported that Gantz last week mentioned developing a “special security arrangement” with its new allies in the region, including the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
“I don’t think it’s going to be a defense pact but we are going to develop defense relations with every country that we’ve established relations with,” he told Reuters.
The AP reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently met with an ambassador from the UAE at his office and said, “We’re changing the Middle East. We’re changing the world.”
The Jerusalem Post reported that Netanyahu recently told Vice President Harris that Israel was committed to preventing Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon.
TRENDPOST: While the media continues to report on Israel’s determination to stop Iran from going nuclear, rarely is it noted that according to the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, Israel possesses 90 plutonium-based nuclear warheads and has produced enough plutonium for 100-200 weapons. 
Thus, it is OK for Israel and other nations to have nuclear weapons, but not Iran… or, for that matter, North Korea. Only nations sanctified by a higher political order are permitted to have nuclear weapons or weapons of mass destruction. And, as evidenced with Iraq, whether they possess them or not, the very thought of it is enough to invade and destroy an “enemy” nation.
It should also be noted that despite the lack of evidence, the U.S. media supported the George W. Bush lie, blackballing and/or denouncing those who provided counterintelligence and/or were against the Iraq war. (See the FAIR article from March 2007.)
