BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The Israeli Defence Forces are the only military forces in the world capable of taking on Iran in the event of war, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said.

“At the moment, the only army in the world to fight Iran – this is the Israeli army,” Netanyahu said, speaking to members of Israel’s National Security College at his residence on Sunday, according to the Jerusalem Post.

The prime minister also recalled his role in fighting the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, saying the agreement would have only given Iran “hundreds of billions of dollars” to “invest in their empire” and “pave the way for [an Iranian] nuclear arsenal.”

“I had to fight alone to block the nuclear agreement,” Netanyahu said. “I had to fight against all the powers and against the president of the United States – I went to the US Congress.”

“Today, you can judge whether we were right or not. So, first of all, you have to stop it,” Netanyahu said.

According to the prime minister, “the only thing that the terrible nuclear deal gave” Israel was the “strong and sweeping rapprochement with major Arab countries,” whom Iran also allegedly threatened with nuclear annihilation.

Netanyahu personally lobbied President Donald Trump to scrap the JCPOA, making a media presentation in 2018 based on information said to have been obtained by Israeli intelligence about Iran’s alleged attempts to hide its nuclear activities from the world. Days after the presentation, Trump announced that the US would be withdrawing from the agreement.

Last week, after hearing that Tehran would soon surpass the uranium enrichment levels limit outlined by the JCPOA, Netanyahu said that the only possible reason for such an action was the creation of a nuclear bomb. He also compared Iran’s enrichment activities to the actions of Nazi Germany in the 1930s.

Iran has denied having any intention to pursue nuclear weapons, saying Islam “never approves of weapons of mass destruction.” Tehran has also recalled repeatedly that Israel has been the only state in the region with an actual nuclear weapons arsenal for many decades.

War,war and more war, cries the psychopathic leader of the worlds only terrorist state. But the irony is that it won’t be the IOF that will face off against the Iranian military, that will be left to the US colonial retards and other Israeli controlled governments, now that ISIS ( Israeli secret intelligence services ) have been negated. Let’s be honest the IOF have their hands full with the slingshots and kites of the Palestinian resistance fighters, so taking on a military who possess an army,air force and navy will only result in tears like the 2006 invasion of Lebanon.… Read more »

ISIS = Iranian secret intelligence services… ISIS founder Zarqawi hid in an IRGC base after having left Afgha, post Sept. 11 2001AD, then IRGC smuggled him into Iraq in 2002. Just a few later, Khamenei warned Dubya/Chenney/Rumsfeld that Saddam was allied with al-Qaeda. CIA told the US admin that there weren’t links, but the Dubya admin wanted to believe the Khamenei taqiyya. Well, I must say I’m a bit impressed at how the ayatoilet managed to schmooze USA into doing the job the Khomeini mafia didn’t succeeded at in 8 years of war… Hihi, seem the ayatoilets are the only… Read more »

Daily breakdown of your bullshit. 400 obsolete navy-vessels. This is mostly a brown-water navy set to operate no more than 30 NM from the shore ==> utterly wrong, more than 5 Mowj-class frigates in servcice and 5 other in active construction, equipped now with brand-new CIWS, projected in the coming year to be further upgraded with VLS for mid-range SAMs, + torpedoes. Can pack quite a heavy anti-ship punch too, with 4 C-803s, a much-evolved version of the export early-generation C-802 copy that Hezb used in terrible conditions in 2006 by commandeering a civilian coastal radar from the Lebanese coast… Read more »

HUMAN DECISION CAN OVERRULE SKY (Chinese proverb)

BUT JEWS MUST LASER TILL VANISH LIVE ON EARTH
Then see your ignorance more powerful or the ultimate truth
(Other seek DANNY WOO VK in QWANT for book of life, so you aware why you need to keep a distance from subject targeted to destroy)

And dont forget to watch how the story should end since God were kind and merciful already toasted by the meaning of Deception.

If you assured, who is not evil nor blocking the truth from prevailing. Then try to speak again and see how someone answer you.

Australia will support the Holy Nation of Israel with the US & UK forces as Judaism & Christendom push back against the Islamist Hordes. In these End Times the powers of Darkness are exposed and Islamist’s should fear the King of Kings.
