Mr. Netanyahu said Russia is an important "superpower" and an important friend of the state of Israel.
Israel forgot about their important friend and superpower when they involved themselves in Georgia's attack....but, I digress.
Israeli media said Mr. Netanyahu would press Russia not to sell sophisticated weapons to Iran. Israel is especially concerned about Russian anti-aircraft missiles that would improve Iran's defenses against a possible Israeli attack.
"No reason to stall on the sale of its S-300 anti-aircraft systems to Iran"
The possible sale of Russian air defense hardware to the Islamic Republic is a major irritant for both Israel and close ally the United States.
"This deal is not restricted by any international sanctions, because the talk is about deliveries of an exclusively defensive weapon," he said.
Nazarov also said a military strike on Iran would be a big mistake and that the problems linked to Iran's nuclear program must be resolved only by diplomatic means.
"Any military action against Iran will explode the situation, will have extremely negative consequences for the entire world, including for Russia, which is a neighbor of Iran," he said.
The chairman of the US military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, said on Sunday he was concerned about the consequences of any attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.
"The outbreak of a conflict will be a big, big, big problem for all of us, and I worry a great deal about the unintended consequences of a strike," Admiral Mullen said.
Apart from saying that "it's pretty hard to be specific about" the issue, the top-ranking US military official did not expand on his comments.
While it may be 'pretty hard to be specific', I am hoping the additional information posted expands on Mullen's comments about big, big problems and unintended consequences.
There should be no attack on Iran, it is time to say no to Israel.
