Israel-Iran War: Iran is ‘Prepared for War’ with Israel; Netanyahu Says Israel Can and WILL ‘Stand Alone’
In the face of threats to his country’s existence, and the real possibility of an Israel-Iran war, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has declared: “Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand strong.”
The latest news on Israel and Iran took a dangerous turn on Tuesday July 14, 2015, as a nuclear deal was finalized between Iran and world powers, including the United States.
Israeli leaders, from left to right, charged the West with capitulation to Iran, warned that the deal made the world a more dangerous place, and vowed that Israel would defend itself in any way it saw fit and with all means.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the deal was bad because the P5+1 was “willing to make an agreement at any cost, this is the result.”
Netanyahu’s Warning to US Congress and the World
As the original March 24 deadline approached, Netanyahu delivered an impassioned cautionary speech to a joint meeting of the United States Congress in Washington DC. At this time, it is important to reflect back upon what Israel’s Prime Minister had warned.
Netanyahu warned that if the international community goes ahead with the deal that Kerry is negotiating, the safety and security of not only Israel, but also the United States and the entire free world will be gravely threatened. And that is exactly what has happened.
Netanyahu reminded the world that this was not the first time in history that a Persian empire has threatened the Jewish people’s existence. 2500 years ago, Haman, a high official in the Persian Empire, set into motion a genocidal plan to do away with the Jews. Fortunately, the plan was foiled by the timely intervention of Queen Esther and her cousin Mordechai. This victory of survival is celebrated until today, during the holiday of Purim.
Of course, since the days of Haman there have been many more brutal attempts by governments, groups and individuals to destroy the Jewish people. The modern day threat from Persian soil dates back to 1979 when a radical Islamic regime seized power and implemented a constitution in which the preamble states clearly the country’s mission of Jihad, stating that it is the “hope that this century will witness the establishment of a universal holy government [Islamic] and the downfall of all others.”
Iran’s Regime is ‘Gobbling Up Nations’
Netanyahu stressed in his speech that even while Iran is currently dealing with imposed sanctions, it is still “gobbling up” nations in the Middle East. As such, he warned that it is irrational and dangerous to think that Iran’s regime will suddenly make a radical change, discard its militant Islamist ideology, and become a peace loving country after a deal is signed.
