US will not apologize to Israel over Iran

The Israelis have been given very strong assurances about their security, and I don’t think the United States has to apologize for anything.

“The Israelis have been given very very strong assurances about their security by the United States, and I don’t think the United States has to apologize for anything on that score,” retired General James Jones said in an interview with the Washington Times.

Jones comments underscore an increasingly public conflict between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over Iran’s nuclear energy program.

Netanyahu has been mulling a military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities, while Washington -- Tel Aviv’s strongest ally --insists for more time to allow diplomacy to work.
