Times of Israel/AP: Kerry: I don’t believe Israel would hit Iran without consulting us first

In Israeli TV interview, US secretary insists emerging deal will ‘protect Israel'; PM: ‘It will endanger Israel and the world’

US Secretary of State John Kerry sought to calm Israeli worries over an emerging nuclear deal with Iran in an interview aired Sunday, dismissing some concerns as brought on by “hysteria” over the possible agreement.

Speaking to Israel’s Channel 10 television, Kerry said the deal wouldn’t affect American options to counter any possible effort by Iran to build atomic weapons.

He also said he did not believe Israel would surprise the United States by attacking Iran without prior consultation, because of the “huge” potential implications.

WNU Editor: U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry seems very sure of himself .... that should Israel decide to attack Iran, they would consult with the U.S. first. He is probably right .... especially since I cannot help but feel that should the Israelis decide to attack Iran .... U.S. intelligence and their moles in the Israeli government and military would raise the alarm first. But absent that .... I have to wonder.
