Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Iran to leave Syria “fast,” saying Israel will continue its “aggressive policy there,” during a ceremony in Tel Aviv on Tuesday.

“I heard yesterday the spokesman of the Iranian foreign ministry saying ‘Iran has no military presence in Syria, we are only advising,’ well, I advise them to get out of there fast because we will continue our aggressive policy there as we promised and as we [will] do it with no fear, and relentlessly,” said Netanyahu.

He was attending the appointment ceremony of incoming Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi.

Netanyahu also spoke about other of Israel’s recent foreign policy undertakings, saying, “we have acted responsibly and sensibly to thwart the strengthening of those who seek to harm us.”

“We have done this by blocking the Iran nuclear deal and renewing sanctions upon it. We have to puncture its lies, it lies all the time, it lies about the nuclear deal and we exposed that by taking out its secret nuclear archive in Tehran,” the prime minister added.

Straitjacket has been abandoned to Thorazine long ago.
Your Khamenei should give a try since only a schizo can believe you can run a country by a stupid book of religion.
When it comes to Bibi, you’re not paranoid when you have real enemies.
You’d better pray he stills in place : if ever Avigdor Lieberman ends as PM, replacing him, well, you’ll regret Bibi for sure : Lieberman is a real extremist, just like your masters in Tehran, but he’ll have 5x the military budget the creeps ruling you can align…
