US vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin on Thursday said that an administration led by her and Republican presidential candidate John McCain will not second guess an Israeli decision to preemptively strike Iran's nuclear facilities.
In an interview with ABC News, Palin said that a nuclear-armed Iran would pose a threat to the whole world, and that if an ally like Israel determines that it must strike Iran to defend itself, Washington mustn't stand in the way.
Despite efforts by interviewer Charlie Gibson to extract a more inflammatory response by posing the question in several different ways, Palin continued to reiterate her position:
"I don't think we can second guess what Israel has to do to secure its nation."
