Israeli Politician Makes Veiled Nuclear Threat Against Iran

The U.S./NATO proxy war against Russia in Ukraine draws all the attention for the risk that it might escalate into a nuclear war, but Israel should not be forgotten for the same risk that it presents. In the latest example of such a danger emanating from Israel, Avigdor Liberman, the founder and leader of the Yisrael Beiteinu party—which">describes itself “as a national movement with the clear vision to follow in the brave path of Zev Jabotinsky"—launched a threat against Iran that could be interpreted as nuclear.

In a July 3 social media post on X, Liberman used indirect language to suggest that Israel’s major strategic foe in its battle against Hamas and Hezbollah was Tehran, and that in order to declare victory over the two groups, it first had to destroy Iran’s nuclear program. “In order to stop the Iranian nuclear program, which is already in the weapons stages, we must use all the means at our disposal,” he wrote, reported Middle East Eye. “It should be clear that at this stage it is not possible to prevent nuclear weapons from Iran by conventional means.”
