Bibi: Iran Making a Bomb. IDF Chief: No It’s Not

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to CNN:

Sanctions “better work soon” — so far they “haven’t rolled back the Iranian program — or even stopped it — by one iota.”

IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz to Haaretz:

The sanctions are beginning to bear fruit …

CNN to Netanyahu:

How do you know what they’re doing [building a bomb]? Netanyahu: Oh, we know.

IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz to Haaretz:

I don’t think Ayatollah Khamenei will take the next step and decide build a bomb … “I think the Iranian leadership is composed of very rational people.”
