The day after two Israeli soldiers were killed in a Hizballah attack from Mt Dov, PM Binyamin Netanyahu accused Iran of its orchestration without elaborating. In that country, even “moderates” speak of destroying Israel and the Jewish people, he said Thursday at a ceremony commemorating the late prime minister Ariel Sharon.
“I am committed to the struggle against a nuclear-armed Iran. For years, I have mustered support among all those who care about Israel’s future.” Netanyahu went on to say: “There is still time to stop the ayatollahs gaining weapons of mass destruction. We are not afraid to stand up and fight the dangerous nuclear agreement taking shape between the world powers and Iran, or speaking out against it. “
He reiterated: “Israel will never accept an accord of appeasement that permits Iran to continue its race for a nuclear bomb. We reserve the right to do everything in our power to stop the extremist regime in Tehran from arming itself with a nuclear bomb.”
