Netanyahu: Arab Countries Know Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Can’t Be Resolved Before Iran’s Regional Aggression Is Rolled Back
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met on Monday in Jerusalem with a visiting Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations leadership delegation.
Commenting on the regional situation, Netanyahu said, “With the Arab countries, as with many Muslim countries, the question is how to fight militant Islam.”
Referring to the US-sponsored Middle East diplomatic summer in Poland last week, the Israeli prime minister stated, “In Warsaw, you saw something spectacular. There were 60 foreign ministers, with the representatives from half a dozen Arab countries who got on the stage and spoke about Iran.”
“They said Iran is the greatest danger we face,” he continued. “One was asked about Israel’s military action against Iran’s efforts to entrench itself in Syria and the answer was, ‘Every country has a right to defend itself.’”
“They spoke about seeking solutions to problems in the Middle East,” Netanyahu recalled. “They said, yes, we want to solve the Israeli-Palestinian problem, but it cannot be solved unless we roll back Iran’s aggression. That’s a change.”
