Addressing the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday he is aiming for a broad-based government coalition able to cope first and foremost with the many security perils facing the country - some of the worst it has ever faced  -  from the east, north and south: Iran, its nuclear program and its satellites, Syria’s lethal weaponry and the Arab turmoil around us “won’t wait till we put together a new cabinet," he said. "If Israel isn't strong and resolute enough to meet these challenges on its own, no one will come to its aid,”he stressed. “But I am convinced we are up to it.” DEBKAfile: East referred to Iran, north to Syria and Hizballah and south, to Al Qaeda.
