Netanyahu Slams Iran Move to Send Ships Towards US


netanyahu-2Israel today denounced an Iranian announcement that it was sending naval ships towards the United States as further evidence that loosening sanctions on Tehran was counterproductive.

The move to send warships to the Atlantic was announced by the commander of Iran’s northern naval fleet who described it as a “message.” The ships “have already started their voyage towards the Atlantic Ocean via the waters near South Africa,” said Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad, in remarks quoted by Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency.

Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu said the dispatch of the warships was clear evidence of Iran’s “aggression” and proof it had not moderated its policies following a landmark deal with world powers to roll back its nuclear programme in exchange for sanctions relief.

“The easing of sanctions against Iran by the international community has not caused Iran to moderate its international aggression – the complete opposite has occurred,” Netanyahu told the weekly cabinet meeting in remarks relayed by his office.

  1. That’s part of Iran’s i.e. Gog-job. They are going to fight against the entire world before m ashiach comes. They will be the last to fight klal y isroel before m ashiach.

  2. If America is week other leaders take the stage. That’s just how it works. At least someone is standing up for the good of the world. Go BIBI!!

  3. You all have to realize America first and then Israel, for that is why it matters. Iran is afraid of they attack Israel first America will then get in to the war, but if America is first they will be weakened enought then they can attack Israel next. That is why it matters.

  4. “If America wonÂ’t defend itself”

    What is there to defend against? These ships have every right to go all around the world in international waters. And they know that if they do anything hostile to the US they will be sunk in minutes.
