Netanyahu: Iran supports 360 degree terror
November 11, 2016 — Israel National News reports: “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday warned about Iran’s drive to carry out terror attacks. His comments were made during a meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem.
‘We would like to take advantage of the great opportunities of the new world, but there are those who would like to take us backward to the old world of the dark and murderous Middle Ages, and we are partners in the war on radical Islamic terror,’ said Netanyahu.
‘Israel, Russia and he U.S. and many other countries share the goal of eliminating Daesh,’ continued Netanyahu, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State (ISIS).
‘I think that cooperation between all of the elements I have said toward this goal serves each one of us and also serves humanity.
‘To the same extent,’ he warned, ‘we are also concerned by the second element leading radical Islam and this is Iran which champions the destruction of Israel and also supports 360 degree terror on five continents.
‘We are determined to do two things: First, prevent Iran from achieving nuclear weapons and second, to prevent Iran – in any situation that arises in Syria, with or without an agreement – from establishing itself militarily in Syria, on the ground, in the air or at sea. We are also determined to prevent it from bringing about the establishment of Shiite militias, which it is organizing, and of course, the arming of Hezbollah with dangerous weapons aimed at us,’ said the Prime Minister…” (This mess has been created by President Obama and his devilish contract with Iran, a nation of Shi’ite liars and covenant breakers. Trouble is coming soon. See the next three reports.)
Top Iranian general: Tehran gave Hezbollah missiles it used against Israel
November 11, 2016 — The Times of Israel reports: “Iran’s top general said the Islamic Republic set up a missile factory in Syria which transferred supplies to Hezbollah to use in the 2006 war against Israel.
‘Iran established the missile industry for Syria in Aleppo in the past years and produced missiles and they were used during the 33-day war against Israel,’ Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency quoted General Mohammad Hossein Bagher as saying.
The conflict in 2006 began after Hezbollah killed five IDF soldiers at the Israel-Lebanon border and snatched the bodies of two — Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev — sparking a bloody, month-long war. The fighting resulted in the deaths of 43 Israeli civilians and 119 IDF soldiers, and over 1,700 dead on the Lebanese side, including 600 to 800 Hezbollah combatants, according to IDF figures.
During the 34 days of fighting, Hezbollah launched over 4,000 rockets at Israel, an average of over 100 a day…”
Rouhani: Trump can’t overturn the nuclear deal
November 10, 2016 — Israel National News reports: “Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday there was “no possibility” that the nuclear deal with world powers would be overturned by United States president-elect Donald Trump, despite his threat to rip it up.
“Iran’s understanding in the nuclear deal was that the accord was not concluded with one country or government but was approved by a resolution of the UN Security Council and there is no possibility that it can be changed by a single government,” Rouhani was quoted by AFP as having told his cabinet.
Last year’s agreement with world powers saw international sanctions on Iran lifted in exchange for guarantees that it would not pursue a nuclear weapons capability.
During the election campaign, Trump described the deal as “disastrous” and said it would be his “number one priority” to dismantle it.
Iranian officials have repeatedly said, however, that Trump will not be able to overturn the deal…”
