Krauthammer: Israel ‘will strike’ Iran to ‘prevent a second holocaust’

By Jeff Poor – The Daily Caller,  02/11/2012

On Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer doubled-down on an assertion he made last week about the inevitability of an Israeli strike on Iran to limit their nuclear capabilities.

Krauthammer referred to a David Ignatius Washington Post column, which indicated generally when Defense Secretary Leon Panetta thought such an attack might happen.

“Our own secretary of Defense has said it’s highly likely and he gave a timeframe — April, May, June, which means the Israelis think that the moment, the zone of immunity where they can no longer attack successfully is approaching,” Krauthammer said. “I think he is right. I think the Israelis are serious unless happens between now and midyear or even November that will threaten the regime, because it won’t change the policy. I think Israel will strike because it cannot live under the threat of annihilation from Iran.”

But this time, Krauthammer had some strong words on why he thought this attack was likely.

“Unless something intervenes,” Krauthammer replied. “I cannot imagine the Israelis are going to allow Iran to go nuclear and to hold the Damocles sword over 6 million Jews all over again. Israel was established to prevent a second holocaust, not to invite one.”

  1. Israel was already attacking Iran (“unnatural” events like Isfahan as described by Israeli general Gantz) until Hussein Obama made them stop. No missiles, no bombers nor ground troops were used.
