Israel Foreign Ministry: Sunni Arab Nations Are “Allies”


dore goldThe director general of Israel’s Foreign Ministry, Dore Gold, on Wednesday called the Middle East’s Sunni Arab nations “Israel’s allies.” Referring to Iran, Gold said, “What we have is a regime on a roll that is trying to conquer the Middle East, and it’s not Israel talking, that is our Sunni Arab neighbors – and you know what? I’ll use another expression – that is our Sunni Arab allies talking.”

His presentation in New York, organized by the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, also featured Amos Yadlin, a former chief of Israeli military intelligence who now heads Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies. Yadlin said that the Iran deal is a “disaster” when it comes to where it leaves Iran in 15 years. “My parameters for a good deal were crossed – everywhere,” Yadlin said.
