Israeli Vice PM says US perceived as Weak by Radicals

EXCLUSIVE: ISRAELI VICE PRIME MINISTER TELLS EVANGELICALS U.S. POLICY OF “ENGAGEMENT” WITH IRAN PERCEIVED BY RADICALS AS “WEAKNESS”

(Jerusalem, Israel) — “We have no territorial disputes with Iran,” noted Israeli Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon in an address to nearly 300 evangelical Christians here in the Holy Land as part of a Joshua Fund prayer & vision trip. “So why do Western leaders believe territorial compromise by Israel will appease them?”

General Ya’alon – who served from 2002 to 2005 as the Israeli Defense Forces’ chief of staff — pointed to ”Iranian fingerprints” on arms shipments and terrorist actions in recent years in Lebanon, in Gaza, in Iraq, in Afghanistan and most recently in Yemen. He warned that Iran is rapidly acquiring the technical capacity to build nuclear weapons. In light of such dangerous developments, he urged the West to wake up to the danger and gain the “moral clarity and strategic clarity” needed to confront Iran successfully.
