Netanyahu to Iran: Your plan to destroy Israel will fail


PM Netanyahu's Statement in Response to the Iranian Leader's Plan to Eliminate Israel

Statement by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in response to the Iranian leader's call to eliminate Israel.

Netanyahu to Iran: Your plan to destroy Israel will fail.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks to U.N. General Assembly, October 1, 2015.

PM Netanyahu: I never imagined I'd say this...

I never imagined I'd say this, but I think Iran's hostility to Israel can be summed up by the experience of a single Iranian wrestler named Alireza.

A few days ago, Alireza was about to beat a Russian wrestler in a world championship, and then his coach ordered him to lose the match.
The reason?
Because in the next round, Alireza would have had to face an Israeli wrestler.
You see, Iran forbids its athletes from competing against Israelis.

Now that's not surprising given that the regime in Tehran calls for the destruction of all Israelis, the destruction of Israel.
Now, that's not going to happen, I assure you. We won't let that happen.

But in the meantime, it's the people of Iran who pay the price. When his coach told Alireza to throw the match, he said his whole world seemed to come to an end. Just imagine, a government forbidding its athletes from competing against blacks, gays or Arabs.
Close your eyes and think about Alireza for a moment. He trained countless hours; he dreamed of becoming a world champion. But the Iranian regime would rather see its athletes lose than compete against Israelis.

So I have an idea. This is an idea that will honor and inspire future Alirezas buy promoting exactly the kind of coexistence and tolerance that Iran tries so hard to stamp out. I want you to film yourself playing a sport against someone of a different nationality, a different faith or different color. I want you to compete like hell—we're all for competition. Then I want you to shake hands, go out for a drink together, and then upload this to the social media.

I want you to show Iran's regime that hating others will never make you a champion. It only makes you a pathetic and insecure loser.
Winners aren't afraid to show tolerance and respect.

Alireza, I want you to know that the tyrants who made you take a fall will fall themselves. A regime that crushes the creative and competitive spirits of its people—that regime is doomed.
So are those who threaten to destroy the Jewish state. They'll go down for the count.

PM Netanyahu: The Iranian people are brilliant

What I'm about to say may surprise you coming from the Prime Minister of Israel.
But I categorically state: Iranians are among the most gifted and successful people in the world. Of course, there’s one catch—when they leave Iran.

You see, in Silicon Valley, entrepreneurs of Iranian heritage are among the founders and CEOs of Uber, Ebay, Dropbox and many other outstanding companies.

The Iranian people are brilliant. They’re innovative.
So why is Iran so poor? Why is unemployment so rampant?
The answer is in two words: the regime.

Iran's dictators plunder the country's wealth.

Isn’t it a shame that Iran doesn’t invest in its people?

Instead, they divert tens of billions of dollars to their nuclear program, to the spread of terror around the world, to their aggression throughout the Middle East.

Meanwhile, the Iranian people are the ones that suffer.

I look forward to the day when the Iranian people don't need to go to Silicon Valley, don’t need to go there to build the most successful companies in the world.

Imagine Iranian and Israeli entrepreneurs working together, in Iran and in Israel, for the betterment of all humanity.

That’s my hope. That is my vision.
And that can be our future.

Israel: 'Iran crossed red line' - Netanyahu on Israeli strikes in Syria

Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that 'Iran crossed a red line' explaining the recent Israeli air strikes on alleged 'Iranian targets' in Syria, speaking from West Jerusalem on Thursday.

The Iranian action failed due to our preparation both in the offensive and the defensive. No rocket landed in Israeli territory, claimed Netanyahu.

He also added that he delivered a clear message to the Assad regime: Our action is directed against Iranian targets in Syria. But if the Syrian army acts against us, we will act against it. This is exactly what happened yesterday, batteries of the Syrian army fired surface to air missiles against us and therefore we struck them.

The Syrian military claimed 'dozens of missiles' were launched by Israel early Thursday. The reported target was the City of Baath in the Quneitra Governorate, close to the ceasefire lines with Israel.

Israel's military said it was responding to rockets fired at its positions in the occupied Golan Heights, including one border post, by Iranian forces inside Syria. An Israel Defence Forces (IDF) statement stated a total of 20 rockets had been fired, some of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defence system, causing no casualties.


SOT, Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel (Hebrew): Iran crossed a red line. Our response was in accordance with that. The IDF carried out a very extensive strike against Iranian targets in Syria. The Iranian action failed due to our preparation both in the offensive and the defensive. No rocket landed in Israeli territory. The people of Israel are proud of the IDF and the people of Israel put their faith in the IDF. We are in a continuous campaign, and our policy is clear: We will not allow Iran to establish itself militarily in Syria. Yesterday I delivered a clear message to the Assad regime: Our action is directed against Iranian targets in Syria. But if the Syrian army acts against us, we will act against it. This is exactly what happened yesterday, batteries of the Syrian army fired surface to air missiles against us and therefore we struck them. The international community must prevent the Iranian Quds forces from establishing itself militarily in Syria. We need to unite in order to sever the arms of evil spreading there and everywhere. I repeat: whoever attacks us, we will attack them sevenfold and whoever prepares to attack us, we will act against them first. That is what we have done and will continue to do.

Israel PM Netanyahu praises Trump stance on Iran

(15 Oct 2017) The Israeli Prime Minister has expressed support for US President Donald Trump's refusal to certify the Iran nuclear deal saying he congratulated the American leader for his important decision regarding Iran.
Trump on Friday had accused Iran of violating the landmark 2015 international nuclear accord, blaming the Iranians for a litany of sinister behaviour and hitting their main military wing with anti-terror penalties.
But Trump, breaking his campaign pledge to rip up the agreement, did not pull the US out or re-impose nuclear sanctions.
He still might, he added.
Speaking during his weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem on Sunday, Netanyahu said Trump's decision created an opportunity to fix the nuclear agreement and roll back what he referred to as Iranian aggression.
Netanyahu also confirmed Israel's plans to exit from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) saying it had become the stage for outrageous decisions anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic in fact resolutions.
The move follows a decision Thursday by the United States to leave the UN's cultural agency because of what it said was anti-Israel bias.
