US Israel Nexus and Iran
According to analysts on the Middle East, if Iran goes nuclear, Israel would no longer be able to continue its ambiguous nuclear policy and will have to declare its nuclear weapons. Also,it may ignite a nuclear warfare in the region which will ultimately pose existential threat to Israel. Despite the close alliance between the US and Israel, there appears a dissonance on Iran’s nuclear programme. Israeli leadership dismissed the chances that sanctions would now deter Iran or convice it to give up its nuclear programme. It called for stringent actions against Iran by the US, that may include a military or aerial strike.
In March this year, in his address to the american Israel Public Affairs Committee,US President Barack Obama, while referring to Iran’s ambitions to acquire nuclear technology said: “no Israeli government can tolerate a nuclear weapons in the hands of a regime…that threatens to wipe Israel off the map… A nuclear-armed Iran is completely counter to Israel’s security interests of the United States.
” He also quoted former President of the US, theodore Roosevelt: “Speak softly but carry a big stick”. This was not only an unequivocal proclamation of the US present stance on Iran but can also be viewed as a warning to the country against its hard-line anti-US and anti-Israel stance.

Primarily, the likely acquisition of uranium enrichment technology or nuclear weapons technologyby Iran, in particular, is what rang alarms in the Us and Israel about a decade ago. President of Islamic Republic of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad has been explicitly following an anti-US agenda. Adopting austerity measures at home, the leader is determined to face every economic challenge posed by the US or the international community in the wake of its missile technology and civilian nuclear technology programme.
The cost of the sanctions against Iran is 133 million dollars per day. Although, Iran has yet not acquired “nuclear or atomic weapons“,for the US,the nuclear Iran in the Middle East, while strengthening anti-US and anti Israel elements threatens its greater policy interest in the region.On the other hand, Israel views nuclear Iran an existential threat to the Jewish state.
US Israel Nexus and Iran
The US, so far , exercised diplomatic pressure and placed economic sanctions to deter Iran from acquiring and advancing its nuclear programme and warned Iran of grave conswquences if the country chose not to abandon its nuclear ambition.Also there have been vociferous reminders that the US would never settle for nuclerarmed Iran and a millitary attack would be the last resort.
