Israel Turns to US For Backup Plan Against Iran

After failing to win support in Russia for tough sanctions against Iran, Israel turns to its closest ally, the United States, for a backup plan to curb Tehran's enrichment program.

On Tuesday, the Israeli military radio reported that Defense Minister Ehud Barak will be travelling to Washington to share his concerns over Iran's refusal to stop its nuclear activities.

Barak will meet several US officials during his five-day tour, including US Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Middle East 'peace' envoy George Mitchell.

He is also scheduled to meet the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in New York.'
