Attends IDF Graduation Ceremony, Warns Iran To Stop Aggression
--- February 12, 2014 ... Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
attended the graduation ceremony for the IDF Ground Forces officer
training course and made the following remarks:
Iran is marking 35 years since the Islamic Revolution and this
'celebration' has been marked by repeated calls for Israel's destruction.
The desire to cut the Jewish People off from its homeland did
not pass from the world with the establishment of the state. What
has changed is our ability to oppose those who seek our lives
and frustrate their designs."
Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday that the reason for his
upcoming visit to the US next month is to warn against the Iran
threat and to discuss the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
warned that Iran continues its role as a "terror state,"
and therefore it must never be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons.
Netanyahu's visit to the US are representatives of the Iranian
government - two naval ships.
The two Iranian
warships which are headed toward the US East Coast are a pair
of "rust buckets" that Tehran is using to show to its
people that it can project power around the globe. One of the
ships barely survived a 1988 run-in with an American fighter jet.
of Irans Northern Navy Fleet said the ships the frigate
Sabalan and Kharg, a supply ship capable of carrying helicopters
began their trip last month from the southern port city
Bandar Abbas. Adm. Afshin Rezayee Haddad said that the naval vessels
had already entered the Atlantic Ocean near South Africa. The
Iranian war ships are said to be on a three-month mission. Haddad
characterized the move as a response to the ongoing presence of
the US Navys 5th fleet, which is based in Bahrain, across
the Persian Gulf.
said the dispatch of the warships was clear evidence of Iran's
"aggression" and proof it had not moderated its policies
following a landmark deal with world powers to roll back its nuclear
program in exchange for sanctions relief.
easing of sanctions against Iran by the international community
has not caused Iran to moderate its international aggression -
the complete opposite has occurred," said Netanyahu.
Iranian war ships pose no real physical threat to the US, but
they do represent a psychological threat to Israel," said
an Israeli security analyst.
Iranians were to develop nuclear weapons, those weapons would
be off the US coast and the US would be facing a repeat of the
Cuban missile crisis of 1963. But of greater relevance to Israel
is that if those ships are attacked by the US, Israel would be
attacked by a hail of missiles coming from Iran, Syria, Lebanon
and Gaza. Iran is begging for a war and Israel is more than prepared
to defend herself. And any action by Israel would be supported
by several Western and Arab nations. Israel wants peace but if
attacked, we will send Iran back to the stone age. That is not
noted that Netanyahu was highly accurate regarding the easing
of sanctions against Iran.
threatens to veto tougher sanctions proposed by the US Congress
against Iran, Iran sends warships off the US East coast. Obama's
foreign policy has proven to be a disaster. If you think Israel
and Western Europe are distressed just imagine those who work
in the US Department of Defense, CIA, NSA and the US military."
