“We have to be very responsible,buck the trends,don’t go by fashion. If you govern by fashion and you govern by the kind of editorials your going to get, you’ll get good editorials and later you’ll get good eulogies. My responsibility is to ensure the survival,security,longevity of the one and only Jewish state.”

—Prime Minister Netanyahu speaking to PBS host Charlie Rose

Netanyahu: Iranian Nuclear Ambition

“Rouhani [President of Iran] tells us not to worry; he assures us that all this is not intended for nuclear weapons. If you believe that, here’s a few questions that you might want to ask: Why would a country with vast natural energy reserves invest billions in developing nuclear energy? Why would a country intent on merely civilian nuclear programs continue to defy multiple Security Council resolutions and incur the costs of crippling sanctions on its economy? And why would a country with a peaceful nuclear program develop intercontinental ballistic missiles [ICBMs] whose sole purpose is to deliver nuclear warheads? You build them for one purpose—to carry nuclear warheads. Why would they do all this? The answer is simple. Iran is not building a peaceful nuclear program. Iran is developing nuclear weapons.

“It’s not that it’s hard to find evidence that Iran has a nuclear weapons program. It’s hard to find evidence that Iran doesn’t have a nuclear weapons program.

“…The last century has taught us that when a radical regime with global ambitions gets awesome power, sooner or later, its appetite for aggression knows no bounds. The world may have forgotten this lesson. The Jewish people have not. Iran’s fanaticism is not bluster. It’s real. This fanatic regime must never be allowed to arm itself with nuclear weapons. I know that the world is weary of war. We in Israel, we know all too well the cost of war. But history has taught us that to prevent war tomorrow, we must be firm today.

“…Israel will never acquiesce to nuclear arms in the hands of a rogue regime that repeatedly promises to wipe us off the map. Against such a threat, Israel will have no choice but to defend itself. I want there to be no confusion on this point: Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons. If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone. Yet in standing alone, Israel will know that we will be defending many, many others. The dangers of a nuclear-armed Iran and the emergence of other threats in our region have led many of our Arab neighbors to finally recognize that Israel is not their enemy. 

“…In our time the biblical prophecies are being realized. As the prophet Amos said, ‘They shall rebuild ruined cities and inhabit them. They shall plant vineyards and drink their wine. They shall till gardens and eat their fruit. And I will plant them upon their soil never to be uprooted again.’

“Ladies and gentlemen, the people of Israel have come home never to be uprooted again.”

Syrian PM: We Have Other Weapons

Syrian Prime Minister Wael Al-Halqi said in an interview to a Lebanese news website that the agreement to disarm Syria does not leave the country without other warfare means meant to “hurt the enemy and create strategic balance.”

He added, “If you have means better suited for your purpose than chemical weapons, why is there a need for (chemical) weapons?”
