President Rivlin: Iran will toughen its responses to Israeli steps in Syria

President Reuven Rivlin predicts that Iran will sharpen its responses to Israel’s steps in Syria and Lebanon and not just there, but also in international diplomacy. The president was addressing the annual international meeting of the National Security Research Institute in Tel Aviv on Monday.  “If I had to sum up the situation in the present and the near future, I would say, ‘escalation and complexity,’” he said. On the Palestinian question, Rivlin said the spirit of Hamas is spilling over alarmingly into Judea and Samaria. Parts of the Palestinian leadership, who once regarded Hamas as a problem and a threat, now see in this radical organization the solution.

    Perhaps this is as it is meant to be, just as Pharaohs heart was hardened before his army was wiped out. When the Jews first went into the Holy Land, they were instructed to remove everything and make the land theirs. When they never it resulted in expulsions lasting 1000’s of years. After all that time, Israel is now being given the same chance. Will Israel have the heart and will to take the chance, and complete the original instruction given to the people?

    As brilliant as Israel is in the medical and technology fields, when will they realize that they must increase their public relations internationally.

    The palestinians & gazans realized this years ago, and have won over the hearts of millions of people throughout the world even though they are perpetrators of crimes and Terror. They are very effective in manipulating the truth and manipulating the pres with their false news.

    Israel must engage and step up its public relations throughout the world, as perception is reality.
