To defeat ISIS and leave Iran as a threshold nuclear power is to win the battle and lose the war. We have to defeat ISIS, but we also have to prevent Iran from getting the capability to produce nuclear weapons.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today (Tuesday, 30 September 2014), in New York, met with Jewish federation leaders and made the following remarks:
"Every time I come to the UN I try to tell the truth as it is. But here’s a picture I didn’t show in the UN yesterday. This is an impending execution. But this isn’t ISIS, this is Hamas. And during the recent fighting in Gaza, right around the time that ISIS was doing its grisly deeds, Hamas executed dozens of Palestinians just to impose fear and force the population of Gaza into submission. It’s true there are some differences between Hamas and ISIS – for example ISIS beheads people and Hamas puts a bullet in the back of their heads. But to the victims, and the victims’ families, the horror is the same.
