WASHINGTON, March 6 -
Mr. Speaker, Iran continues to inch closer to making its nuclear ambitions a reality.
The Administration wants Israel to give diplomacy more time, but Prime Minister Netanyahu said ìpressure on Iran is growing, but time is growing shortî
For Israel, a nuclear-armed Iran threatens its very existence.
Ahmadinejad says he wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth and this radical extremist means what he says.
Israel will do what it has to in order to be the ìmaster of its fateî, with or without the United States.
Unfortunately, the days of full trust between the U.S. and Israel seem to be on shaking ground.
Netanyahu said quote,
ìI will never let my people live in the shadow of annihilationÖIf it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then what is it? That's right, it's a duck. But this duck is a nuclear duck and it's time the world started calling a duck a duck.î
Mr. Speaker, America must totally get behind our friend and let the Iranian duck know whose side we are on.
And thatís just the way it is.
