House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee today that “the time for illusions is over” when it comes to confronting Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
“For years, Iran has been scoffing at the United States and Israel, signaling that it believes it has nothing to lose,” Cantor said. “America and Israel must now demonstrate that we do have the intelligence, capability and will – both military and moral – to persuade Iran that we will meet its folly with force.”
The leader said he makes “no apologies” when stating America and Israel “have the two most morally responsible militaries in the world.”
“When it comes to Iran, Al Qaeda, the Taliban or any of our other enemies, it is not true that one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter,” Cantor said.
“When world bodies such as the United Nations single out Israel as an oppressor, we must ask: have you no eyes, have you no hearts, have you no judgment – and who are you to judge?” he added.
