Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said world leaders are afraid that Israel may attack Iran if a diplomatic solution over the country’s nuclear program is not reached “quickly.”
[ Wow … Israel is really -that- worried about being bombed by Iran ?
How come ? ]
Lula, who makes his first trip to Israel next week, said in an interview with Israeli newspaper Haaretz that countries involved in Middle East peace talks have “grown tired” of the process.
[ … and they’re not the only ones … ]
Bringing new mediators such as Brazil to the table is the only way to advance, according to a transcript of the interview released by the Presidency.
“The leaders I spoke to believe that we must act quickly, otherwise Israel will attack Iran,” Lula said, adding that sanctions against Iran could be counterproductive.
“We can’t allow happen in Iran what happened in Iraq.
Before any sanctions, we must undertake all possible efforts to try and build peace in the Middle East.”
Lula is the first Brazilian president to travel to Israel.
[ perhaps when he walks in the room – he could tazer and then medicate Israel before they do something really stupid ]
