Israel has no choice but to defend its borders, its sovereignty and its very existence against jihadist threats and against any opposition stemming from the propaganda war against it, which portrays Israel as an illegal occupier, despite all historic and archeological evidence to the contrary.
As Iran and other jihadist entities escalate, Leftists step up their attacks against Israel, not only accepting anti-Israel propaganda, but trusting in a nuclear deal. Yet such a deal will only serve to fill Iran’s coffers of Iran and enable the regime’s aid to its proxies and efforts to build a nuclear bomb.
“Lapid tweets to Iranian FM about regime’s ‘evil essence,’” by Laban Harkov, Jerusalem Post, January 4, 2022:
Iran will not be able to destroy Israel, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said in response to his Iranian counterpart on Twitter on Tuesday.
Lapid’s tweet came after Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian tweeted: “The disturbing remarks of the foreign minister of the fake Israeli regime towards the great nation of Iran are an example of the famous Iranian proverb that ‘a camel dreams of a grain of cotton, sometimes it licks the grain of a grain.'”
“We defend the rights, interests and progress of the nation with authority and rationality,” Amirabdollahian wrote. “Zionism has no place in the future of the world.”
Lapid tweeted in response: “The extremist Iranian regime threatens Israel with annihilation but will continue to lose this battle.
“Their failed leadership is destroying Iran from within,” he added. “In the words of the Iranian poet Saadi: ‘He whose essence is evil, will forever remain so.’”
It was unclear which of Lapid’s remarks Amirabdollahian found disturbing. A day earlier, Lapid said that negotiations for Iran to return to the 2015 nuclear deal were unlikely to end well for Israel.
The Vienna talks “won’t reach an optimal result as far as we’re concerned, but we are always working with the people involved to improve the result for Israel,” Lapid said.
The foreign minister said that Israel is continually engaged with the other countries involved in the talks, but that will only bring “a lot of small achievements, not a big one.”
