  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left. The moment we are summoned back to raise the flag, every other consideration is pushed to the side and we answer: We are ready!

Netanyahu: Hezbollah is the Real Lebanese Army

"Today Hezbollah is the real Lebanese army," said Netanyahu, in a meeting of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee today.

"If in the past we considered Hezbollah as a sideline militia, today Hezbollah is the real Lebanese army," he charged. "The Hezbollah has replaced the Lebanese army as a significant force; it is arming and organizing as a real army. The Lebanese government and Hezbollah are becoming interwoven in each other – and they will suffer the consequences of any violation against Israel," Netanyahu added.

With regard to Iran, Netanyahu said that Israel's biggest concern today is the Islamic Republic's build-up of arms. "It is in the world's utmost interest to stop Tehran from gaining more weapons. In the past year, two things have happened: Iran has made progress towards acquiring military nuclear capabilities, and Iran has lost its credibility in the eyes of the international community."

Netanyahu went on to explain, "Iran prevents its people from accessing information, by blocking internet use. Iran is silencing all sources of information. Using the power of the Internet and of Twitter against the Iranian regime is a tremendous thing that the United States can do."  Netanyahu also said that in the past, Iran has been viewed as an unsympathetic government. 'Today, the deep hatred among part of the Iranian nation against the regime could serve as a very important asset to Israel."

With regard to Syria, Netanyahu said that Israel is ready to resume negotiations immediately, without any pre-conditions. But when he began to talk about his position on the possibility of a Turkish mediator, a point of conflict was already revealed.

"Sarkozy also mentioned the Turkish mediation that the Syrians propose, I responded to him saying we are interested in direct negotiations, and if we are talking about a mediator – I prefer you."
