Gilad Atzmon: Britain, Israel and Iran
Israeli Ynet reported today that British Ambassador to Israel Mathew Gould, declared today that “Britain shares Israel's concerns with regards to Iran, and stressed that the Islamic Republic must NOT be allowed to produce nuclear weapons.”
And yet, unlike the Guardian that was quick to print Israeli propaganda spin suggesting that ‘UK military stepped up plans for Iran attack’, Ambassador Gould was somehow hesitant. “An attack on Iran would carry a heavy price” he said and added, “UK favours further economic sanctions against Iran.”
I guess that by now Britain also gathers that Israel puts our planet at risk. Some people in this Kingdom do grasp that Britain better disassociate itself from Israeli aggression in the current volatile climate.
