JNS.orgIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that he believes Israeli and Arab leaders can work together against common threats like Iran’s nuclear program or Islamic extremism.

“Central Arab governments are preoccupied with the Iranian nuclear weapons and the Muslim brotherhood,” Netanyahu said. “The nations do not see Israel as an enemy but as a potential ally to combat these threats. They are not assured by the soft words spoken earlier by the president of Iran. They get it. We all wish there was a real change in Iran.”

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who is also attending the Davos forum, spoke earlier in the day, telling world leaders that his country has never sought nuclear weapons. But Netanyahu said Rouhani’s speech had “no connection to what’s going on, on the ground.”

Netanyahu added that the removal of the Iranian nuclear threat would help bring about peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

“Half of Palestinian society is dominated by Iran’s proxy (Hamas),” he said.

  • Bibi is right! ” The universal mind have no form” everything is possible under clean knowledge of the cause of the Jews and Muslims as a whole played round by those which stand behind the fall of Iranian shah, the Iran- Iraq war, the fall of Saddam Hussein, the Arab Spring, the 9/11, the Norwegian A.B. Breivik killing 77 Norwegian citizens, the fall Mr. Gaddafi, the case of Syria which is clearly planned and connected to the Arab spring, the split of the Palestinians, the creation of Muslims groups fighting each other for nothing, the chaos in Thailand, the chaos in Ukraine, all those events including Obama into power as a president were and are carefully planned to harm not only the Arab world and the Jews by the entire world into chaos. The same people want to harm China which I have evidence. Look carefully who stands behind those evens, you will find out that they are Not Jews, Not Arab Muslims, Not Chinese, but shadowed Nazis! Which are directly connected to the Nobel Piss Prizes criminal ” mind attack” of the world masses, a key to enter all countries masses citizens land space, for targeting defenseless people of all society levels, including homosexuals, lesbians, pedophiles into organized political groups, which each organized political groups ” Does NOT know about other organized political groups in their own country and in neighbor countries. Each created organized groups are ” Mind Attacked” manipulated to fight each other into killing and chaos. Wake UP! The peace between Israel and the Palestinians must be first of all in the hand of the Arab world organization with all respect and Israel with WJG! Seeing that making peace with Israel the whole society of the Arab world, include China, Asia, will profit into everlasting peace to meet our future task for the world population grows which will force as all the make reforms for a better future saving our planet which is our home. The Noble piss prize to a Chinese recruited and created activist is a crime against not only China buy against the entire world! The Nobel piss prize to Obama is a jock! The Nobel piss prize to EU is trap cover up upon the crime committed by EU, NATO and Obama administration killing Mr. Gaddafi which was carefully ” Mind attacked” into madness under false planed events for years, those false events were planned under Norwegian oil companies recruiting defenseless Libyan citizens into organized political activists, sending them to study a broad for taking over Libyan government after the fall of Gaddafi, just as it did happen in Iran with the fall of the Shah. The same people shadowed Nazis did target an Israeli last retired army general which went for oil and gas sea discovery under “Drilling” Norwegian Oil Company were the word drilling means in Norwegian ” screw” screw minds. The Norwegian oil company Drilling of course under cover up are actually owned by a Norwegian family which did make a lot of money under 2WW Nazi concentration camps. Under this Israeli oil gas project try the Israeli
    Investors were played round losing one hundred and fifty million USA.

    Bibi like any senior politician becomes privy to ‘behind the scenes’ expressions and anxieties when dealing with governments of the region. On the face of it, because of the historical sensitivities they may appear to lack credibility. However, with access to both overt and covert information I believe his statements have a greater degree of potential, if not actual accuracy, than is immediately apparent.

  • The arrogance of some Israelis is amazing. Do u think that use of power is the answer? It is the same arrogance that Bush had for Iraq and Afghanistan. And look at the results. Iraq is now handed over to Iran and Afghanistan is kicking out every last US soldier in 2014 with a situation a lot worse than 2002. Think twice before attacking other countries. The unintended consequences are a lot worse than benefits.

  • je pense que secretement les pay arabes voudrais s allier avec israel ou une cooperation il faut voir et le temps presse face a l iran

    “I think secretly Arab would pay s alliance with Israel or cooperation must see and time is running out to face iran”

  • Luigi Rosolin (@LuigiBelmont)

    PM Benjamin is certainly more informed that as normal citizen: his statement is quite realistic as Muslim are not one cult but had many variation: that is well show in Syria. That some Arab nation are more confident of Israel is quite obvious. Who can trust Iran leader’s lies are permitted in they cult of supremacy. The fact are proving their intention for atomic future use. Israel surviving future is highly connected with Arab. They are also descendant of Abraham.God will maintain is promise: many had been already fulfill. Good on Benjamin.

  • Why all of you ask your selves that Your BIBI is wrong and there is no Arab country will coop with Israel is it hard to know the reason why dont u change the question to be what should we do to let Arab countries coop with Israel ?

  • I take Bibi’s claim with a grain of salt. I do believe that countries such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt (post Brotherhood), Jordan, and Morocco, might secretly wish to join as many allies as possible to defeat Iran, but would not dare to say so publicly. Too much political capital has been spent on creating Israel as evil to be undone for anything, at least not in the short run. Back door deals, as with Egypt and Jordan, are possible on a small scale. But it would be political suicide for any Muslim country to support Israel. This is too bad. Because an alliance between Israel and some Muslim countries would leave Iran in a very weak position. But, as I say, a nice pipe dream.

  • Whilst I do believe that huge and undue pressure was put on Bibi to enter this dubious “peace process” HE IS NO FOOL. If he says that certain Arab states see Israel as an ally in dealing with Iran, I believe him and find a great deal to respect.

  • Irving D. Cohen

    Said Bibi to Tibi, “Why don’t you behave ?

    When someone is speaking, don’t rant and rave.

    Instead of the Knesset, you should be in a cave

    After being whacked on the head by an Israeli stave

  • Irving D. Cohen

    I believe Bibi is losing his mind, if he REALLY believes there is the slightest possibility that ANY Arab government can or might cooperate with Israel.

  • dont think Arabs will go against Iran , if you do you will be a goner …

    Jewish Men Pass Jimmy Kimmel Social Experiment, Rescuing ‘Spongebob’ in Distress (VIDEO)

    Two Jewish men were the only unwitting participants in a social experiment conducted by Jimmy Kimmel, for his popular TV show. As part of a candid-camera-like sketch featured Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host devised different street scenes to observe human behavior — in particular, to see how long it would take people walking down California’s bustling Hollywood Boulevard to notice and interact with others in distress. One scene involved a man in a Spongebob Squarepants costume who had “fallen down” on the sidewalk and needed help […]

In an interview with the U.K. Independent she added that the trauma should make Jews more empathetic to others who have also experienced hatred. “Sometimes it can be subverted to fearmongering and like ‘Another Holocaust is going to happen,’” the Israeli-American star said. “We need to, of course, be aware that hatred exists, antisemitism exists against all sorts of people, not in the same way.

    A Righteous Gentile Navigates the Sharkpool of Washington’s Middle East Correspondents (REVIEW)

    The Tribalist, by Louis Marano, is ostensibly a work of fiction but at its core a kind of love song by a gentile journalist for the State of Israel, and especially its secular Zionist core. (Because of the relentless attacks by left-wing polemicists on Israel’s allegedly “messianic” fringe, it’s often forgotten that most of Israel’s founders and all its leaders have been secular Zionists.) The author, the product of an Italian-American family in Buffalo, served two tours of duty in […]

    JNS.org – Rugelach (singular: rugala) are a beloved traditional Jewish pastry, with a quirky history to boot, but they often present a kosher conundrum. Though parve rugelach are often a preferred dessert after a meat meal for those observing kosher laws (which stipulate a waiting period between eating meat and dairy), some of today’s most popular rugelach are known for their dairy fillings. Pastry chef Paula Shoyer—author of the books “The Kosher Baker: Over 160 Dairy-free Recipes from Traditional to Trendy” and […]
