While Americans were remembering the events of 9/11 that catapulted the United States into more than a decade of war, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Americans of hindering Israel’s ability to defend itself on Tuesday.

Responding to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s recent statement that the United States “is not setting deadlines” relating to Iran’s alleged nuclear activities, Netanyahu said that no immediate military action against the Iranians means they will build an atomic bomb.

According to The Washington Post, Netanyahu said the following at a news conference with the visiting Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov:

The sanctions have hurt the Iranian economy, but they haven’t stopped the Iranian nuclear program. That’s a fact.

And the fact is that every day that passes, Iran gets closer and closer to nuclear bombs.

The world tells Israel: “Wait. There’s still time.” And I say: “Wait for what? Wait until when?” Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.

Many defense American and Israeli defense experts alike disagree with Netanyahu’s hawkish assertion that now is the right time for either country to become entangled in war with Iran, arguing that sanctions could still work to further weaken the nation.
