JNS.orgCommenting on Iran’s exhibition of its weapons during a military parade in Tehran on Saturday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would “do whatever is necessary to defend the security of the state and its citizens.”

“Every year [at Iran’s military parade] the missiles are bigger and enhanced—in accuracy, strength, and deadliness,” Netanyahu said at his cabinet meeting on Sunday. “However, one thing does not change. What does not change is the inscription ‘Death to Israel’ on the missiles.”

Netanyahu also reiterated his opposition to the recently reached Russian-Iranian missile deal.

“Israel views with utmost gravity the supply of S-300 missiles from Russia to Iran, especially at a time when Iran is stepping up its aggression in the region and around the borders of the state of Israel,” he said.

    Sad that President Osama, a) hates Netanyahu, b) hates Israel and c) hates Jews. Hope Reverend Wright is smiling

    We are all the product of our thoughts and actions, evil thoughts and actions attract more of the same as good thoughts and actions bring more good. Israel has sowed seeds of evil, hate and corruption since its begining therefore it receives evil and hate back and now it would seem that it will finally be challenged by an opponent that is equal in strength and not the feeble Palestinians that they are used to picking on.

      The evil you see in Israel is in your own heart and mind. The French say, “Evil to him who evil thinks.” I predict that you will get a considerable share of it .

    As the size and quantity of Iran’s missiles has grown, the deterrent effect of Israel’s alliance with America seems to be diminishing. But time may be on the side of Israel, since there is reason to believe that the U.S. executive, like the Congress, may soon be Republican controlled. The threats of the Ayatollah may soon seem like the scimitar rattling of a bully in the Middle East sand box.
