Netanyahu: Iran greater threat than ISIL

The elephant in the room

“I believe there is a devil, already here on Earth. He kills thousands, without remorse or conscience, and no Country dares to challenge him. And In addition to the genocide he has already committed, this devil, Satanyahu, has nuclear weapons and may start WW3 by bombing Iran.”

– Robert Cook

In battling the political echelon for defense budget increases on Sunday, the commander of the Israel Air Force, Maj.-Gen. Amir Eshel, reminded everyone that the same planes used to attack Gaza over the summer could be called upon at any moment to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities.

“There’s no one in this room who’d be prepared to ride in a car as old as our planes,” Eshel said in remarks carried by Israel’s Channel 2 News. “Yesterday these planes were in Gaza, and tomorrow we may send them to Tehran.”

Israel’s prime minister has warned the United Nations that a nuclear-armed Iran would pose a far greater threat than the armed group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which he compared to the Palestinian group Hamas.

Addressing the UN General Assembly in New York on Monday, Benjamin Netanyahu described Iran, ISIL and Hamas as part of a single team, and compared them all to Germany’s Nazis in World War II.

“The Nazis believed in a master race, the militant Islamists believe in a master faith,” Netanyahu said. “They just disagree who among them will be the master of the master faith.”

“Make no mistake, [ISIL] must be defeated,” Netanyahu added. “But to defeat [ISIL] and leave Iran as a threshold nuclear power is to win the battle and lose the war.”

He also said that ISIL and Hamas are “branches of the same poisonous tree” and likened Israel’s deadly bombings of Gaza to US-led airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq and Syria.

Iran, which is negotiating with Western powers to end economic sanctions, has rejected allegations that it is developing the capability to produce atomic weapons, and wants those sanctions lifted as part of any nuclear deal.

Netanyahu is expected to raise the same concerns when he meets with US President Barack Obama on Wednesday.

Despite talks between Iran and West, senior officers tell MKs 10b shekels ($2.9b) allocated to IDF to prepare for possible attack. Netanyahu promises that by the time his next term is over, Iran will not have a nuclear weapons program.
