In an interview with WorldNetDaily.com, Danny Damon, the deputy Speaker for Israel's parliment states, "We are prepared for all risks, and I think our enemies should know that even though we are speaking of peace, we are getting ready for a time of war, as well."
Damon goes on, "We are ready for all scenarios, and we are able to defend our civilian population. I cannot tell you how long we can wait more. But we prefer to wait and see if the international bodies are acting, or [whether] it will be only the burden of Israel, like it was in the early '80s, when the great leader, Menachem Begin, [made] the great decision to bomb the nuclear reactor in Iraq. I think we have to take action. It's about time to take action. It should be the international world and not only Israel. And I expect the administration in the White House to wake up as soon as possible."
Such a story comes right after the New York Times reports that the White House has assured Isreale that a nuclear threat from Iran is not imminent.
