Netanyahu: We'll Do It Ourselves

In an exclusive interview with the Atlantic, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that if Obama doesn't stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons "quickly," his country will not hesitate to resolve the problem itself. "You don't want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs," Netanyahu said. If Iran were to acquire nukes, the P.M. explained, the threat would be truly be global: It would give the country license to be more aggressive, inspire radical Islamists, upset alliances in the Middle East, and affect the world's oil supply. Netanyahu insisted that, along with the economy, Iran should be Obama's top priority.
