Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, appeared on the satirical Comedy Central talk show “The Colbert Report” Tuesday night and was able to battle through the barrage of flippant remarks host Stephen Colbert launched at him.

Outlining Israel’s close strategic alliance with the U.S., Oren dismissed remarks made Colbert about Israel’s relationship with U.S. President Barack Obama and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.

Perhaps the most humorous moment came with the trademark Colbert non-sequitur moment when he asked out of the blue “So when are you going to bomb Iran?’ to which Oren replied, “No country has a greater interest than Israel in resolving the Iranian nuclear threat by diplomatic means.” Colbert responded that if Israel does decide to attack Iran that “the Colbert Nation is behind Israel on this one and if you do bomb Iran we are right behind you with just as many nuclear weapons as you admit to having.”
