Israel Says It Wants ‘War with Iran’ and Is Meeting with Arab Countries to ‘Advance’ It

By Tom O’Connor

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has expressed his desire to go to war with Iran, and said he was meeting with dozens of foreign envoys, including those from the Arab world, in order to push the initiative forward.

The United States has rallied countries from across the world, especially from Europe and the Middle East, to attend a summit in Warsaw in a bid to form a united front against revolutionary Shiite Muslim Iran. In a video posted Wednesday to his office’s Twitter account, Netanyahu said he had just had an “excellent meeting” in the Polish capital with Oman’s foreign minister, with whom he “discussed additional steps we can take together with the countries of the region in order to advance common interests.”

“From here I am going to a meeting with 60 foreign ministers and envoys of countries from around the world against Iran,” the Israeli head of state continued, according to the account’s English-language translation of his Hebrew remarks.
