The Israeli Prime Minister declared that “there’s no place for the weak” in the Middle East, and that Israeli forces will continue to oppose alleged attempts by Iran to expand its influence in Syria.

Commenting on the recently announced cooperation agreement between Iran and Syria, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that it will not deter Israel, Haaretz reports.

“Whoever threatens us with demise puts himself in similar danger, and anyway won’t achieve what they set out to do,” Netanyahu declared, adding that “no threat will deter us.”

The Prime Minister also said that Israel will continue to oppose Iran’s alleged attempts to strengthen its positions in Syria, adding that Tel Aviv “won’t give up this goal, as we didn’t give up the effort to cancel the bad nuclear deal with Iran.”

According to the newspaper, Netanyahu also claimed that the pressure applied by Israel on Iran allegedly helped scare the Iranian government, citing a speech made by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as proof.

“We saw the fruits borne [out of the pressure applied by Israel] in the words of the Iranian President, who said that many among the Iranian people have lost faith in Iran’s future and strength due to the renewed financial sanctions,” Netanyahu said.

He added that “in the Middle East, and in many parts of the world, there’s a simple truth: there’s no place for the weak,” and that “the strong are the ones who are respected, the strong are the ones with whom alliances are struck, and eventually the strong are the ones with whom you make peace.”

Earlier this week, the defense ministers of Iran and Syria signed a deal to develop military and defense cooperation between the two countries.

“Syria is passing the phase of crisis to the phase of reconstruction and as a result, the signed agreement will define the areas of presence, contribution and cooperation between Tehran and Damascus,” Iranian Minister of Defense Brig. Gen. Amir Hatami said.

Tensions between Israel and Iran continue to escalate, with Tel Aviv expressing concern over Tehran’s alleged attempts to establish a permanent military presence in Syria and thus expand its clout throughout the region.

Israel has also conducted airstrikes on Syrian territory, claiming that they targeted militant groups controlled by Iran.

Syria have every right to determine who gets to stay in their country. If Iran is invited then Israel must accept such decisions.

You’re absolutely wrong! You should read Hague’s Convention on the wars by proxies… The presence of Hezbollah alone is a de-facto declaration of war on Israel by both Syria and Iran and so entitles Bibi at taking ANY measures he sees as appropriate on both countries and also Lebanon too! It can go as far as demolishing their whole armies, military facilities and even invading them! In fact, this declaration of IRGC senior commander Salami in July : https://tinyurl.com/yapp4keh is also a casus belli! Thus, nonetheless Bibi is entitled to order Iran to remove their troops and proxies but if… Read more »

A “superpower” that wasn’t even able to provide air-support to her troops and proxies in Syria? That is just backstabbing Syria by allying with Muslim-Brotherhood (Salafst takfiri) Qatar and Turkey added to Hamas, who ALL see Shiites as apostates to be wiped-out. The righteous are the Iranian people and they chant “death to Khamenei”, “Mullahs shall get lost”, “Islam made us poor”, “They [the mullahs] say Israel and USA are our enemies, they are lying! They are Iran’s enemies”, “We want Rea Pahlavi”, etc etc… Hey – Protest of Ahwazi Jufeir village residents against lack of drinking water on Monday… Read more »

When was there any ‘Palestinian nation’ in history? I’d like to know of some Palestinian king, president, emir or whatever before Arafat who BTW was bornas an Egyptian and was drafted in Egyptian army… Palestine is a region, not a country. 77% of Palestine is Jordan. If there was a Genocide, well, Gaza had 300k population in 1970. Treblinka was gassing 2,000 ppl a day, just using the carbon monoxide from a T-34 (Russian) tank engine… Gaza would have been emptied in 150 days… Now Gaza’s population is near 2 millions… Add the near 3 millions squatters in Judea Samaria… Read more »

“there’s no place for the weak,” did he REALLY say that? Can’t believe it. Adolf would have said similar. Is it sure, it’s not a fake news?
If they go on like this, they will force a worldwide massacre. And it will be fueled by antisemitism. And this line will be repeatedly shouted over-and-over into every innocent Jew’s face before murdering them.
True or not, this news just provided a justification for the next holocaust.
Killing the week is the innermost desire of all humans. We are fighting to suppress this and now, it was ‘authorised’. Great!!
