PM Netanyahu: Israel is Ready to Defend Itself
In a passionate speech made to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) conference in Washington on Monday night, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it clear that while he is appreciative of the open support shown for the Jewish state by American President Barack Obama, Israel is ready to defend itself, if necessary, without the support of the west.

“Israel must always have the ability to defend itself — by itself — against any threats,” Netanyahu said in his address. “My friends, we deeply appreciate the great alliance between our two countries, but when it comes to Israel’s survival, we must always remain the masters of our fate.”

Netanyahu went on to say that despite sanctions against Iran, its nuclear program continues to progress.

“None of us can afford to wait much longer,” he said. “As Prime Minister of Israel, I will never let my people live in the shadow of annihilation. For the sake of our prosperity, for the sake of our security, for the sake of our children, Iran must not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons.”
