JNS.orgPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned against multiple aspects of the threat posed by Iran over the weekend.

After the Iranian army said on Saturday that it deployed its first-ever suicide drone, Netanyahu said in a press conference with U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), “Iran today conducted an exercise with a suicide drone. I don’t have to convince you, Senator, that the most important task before us is to prevent this dangerous regime from having nuclear weapons.”

At his cabinet meeting on Sunday, Netanyahu noted the recent Iranian effort “to intensify terrorist actions in Judea and Samaria.”

“None other than the Palestinian Authority ambassador in Tehran said that he was enthused by Iranian ruler [Ayatollah Ali] Khamenei’s instructions to send weapons to the West Bank, and he added, and I quote, ‘The Zionist regime is an aggressive cancerous growth which, sooner or later, must be eliminated,'” Netanyahu said. “Now I emphasize, it was not a Hamas man who said this, it was the Palestinian Authority ambassador in Tehran.”

    I am Jewish so please don’t think this is
    some hidden anti Jewish statement , but
    I am glad you mentioned Israelis being just as guilty
    as others in taking Iran too lightly.

    In America , I sometimes wonder if without
    the Christian Right , the American Jews would be too
    busy thinking of other issues and other politics
    to move the congress to support Israel.

    I hope the people in Israel realize
    what we owe to these Christians .

    All Bebe can do is be honest.
    The whole world looks on.
    They all act like Neville Chamberlain at the onset of WWII.
    You know, ‘Peace in our time’ was a fallacy then, and all Bebe is showing is that it is a fallacy now.
    At least he is getting a better chance to prepare Israel, which is more than Churchill had.
    Same sort of evil tho….
    Like most Brits in ’38, unfortunately, most Israelis and other world citizens fail to realize the importance of the situation.
    Winston had to be resolute.
    So will Bebe.
