Iran Nuclear Program
March 2, 2012 by staff
Iran Nuclear Program, Iran’s nuclear program will be the central topic when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrives in Ottawa for a three-day visit on Friday.
There is a belief Prime Minister Stephen Harper will find himself caught between Israel’s desire to launch a pre-emptive strike against the Islamic republic and the Obama administration’s efforts to defuse the crisis with diplomacy and sanctions.
Whether Netanyahu will ask Canada to support military action is unclear, but if recent history is any indication, Harper’s support for Israel will overrule any concern about damaging the Canada-U.S. relationship.
There has been a growing sense in recent months that Israel is on the verge of attacking Iran as the latter continues to defy the international community and move ahead on its nuclear program, which many fear is aimed at building an atomic arsenal.
Not only has Harper positioned Canada as one of Israel’s strongest supporters, but the prime minister has also warned that Iran is the world’s greatest threat and that it won’t hesitate to use nuclear weapons should it acquire them.
“We are facing a regime that not only wants to attain nuclear weapons but a regime that has, compared to virtually all other holders of nuclear weapons in the past, far less fear of using them,” Harper said in an interview with Postmedia News last month.
