JNS.org – “Israel is strong, the IDF is strong, and we are ready for any scenario,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday during a visit to the Israeli military’s Northern Command.

Accompanying the prime minister on the visit were Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot, and IDF GOC Northern Command Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, who briefed Netanyahu and Ya’alon on the security situation on the Israel-Syria and Israel-Lebanon borders.

“I was positively impressed both by the IDF’s preparedness and by the determination of its commanders and soldiers. The IDF is strong. The State of Israel is strong. We are ready for any eventuality. Those who try to attack us—we will hurt them,” Netanyahu said.

The prime minister also addressed the Iranian threat, saying, “The ruler of Iran, [Ayatollah Ali] Khamenei, said yesterday, and I quote, ‘We will take all measures to support all those who fight against Israel.’ Iranian Foreign Minister [Mohammad Javad] Zarif said in Beirut a few days ago, at a meeting with Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah, and I quote, ‘The nuclear agreement has created a historic opportunity to stand against the Zionist entity.’ What we have said all along is being seen as correct and accurate. The money that will flow to Iran in the wake of the nuclear agreement will serve it to strengthen the terrorist organizations operating against us, in its name and under its auspices, in the avowed goal to destroy Israel.”

    Netanyahu expresses the worry of the USA and its Western allies.Israel is in very close proximity with Iran, so it is their role to express the worry of the free world. I believe that the free world will to an agreement with Iran through the recent deal and other diplomatic, military and economic pressure. Iran will realize that having a nuclear weapon won’t make them any stronger, it will be a burden on them.
