Shapiro: U.S. won’t allow Iran to have nuclear weapon

Follow j. on   and 

U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, at a 9/11 ceremony outside Jerusalem, said the United States “would not permit Iran to be armed with a nuclear weapon.”

Shapiro made his remarks Sept. 11 at the Living Memorial monument in Arazim Park, which contains the names of the nearly 3,000 victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, including five Israelis. The ceremony was organized by the U.S. Embassy in Israel and the KKL–Jewish National Fund.

“There is no nation that better understands our pain, and there is no nation that better identifies with our experience than Israel,” Shapiro said.

He also said that “an Iran armed with a nuclear weapon is an unacceptable threat, and we will not permit it to be realized.” — jta

They've got a bridge they'd like to sell you

Are you willing to bet your life on it?  How about millions of Jewish lives?
