Russia Warns US, Israel Against Attacking Iran

Speaking today at his annual news conference, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov cautioned the United States and Israel against attacking Iran, calling it a “very, very dangerous idea.”

Such comments are not new, but the timing of the latest warning likely is the result of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “victory speech” yesterday, in which he insisted the government would focus on moving against Iran with the election out of the way.

Netanyahu has been faulted by rivals in Israel for his eagerness to start a war with Iran, with former security officials terming it a messianic obsession.
