Netanyahu: WikiLeaks Shows Three Top Issues in Mideast Are Iran, Iran, Iran


netanyahuIsraeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu told foreign journalists Tuesday that the American diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks showed that Iran and its nuclear program were the primary concern for leaders in the Middle East.

“The WikiLeaks exposed the three main concerns of most, if not all, of the governments in this region. The first concern is Iran; the second concern is Iran; and the third concern is Iran,” Netanyahu said at an annual meeting with members of the international press in Israel.

He added that while Arab-Israeli conflict was an important issue, most Mideast governments understood that a failure to thwart Iran’s atomic ambitions would leave all peace moves in tatters.

“That’s not to say that they [Mideast leaders] don’t want to see the advance in the peace process – they do; that they’re not concerned about the Arab-Israeli peace – they are. But they’re very much concerned that all of this would come to naught, and in fact their own interests (I’m speaking diplomatically now) would be tremendously jeopardized unless the Iranian nuclear program is stopped. Peace would be stopped and vital interests of just about every government in the region would be threatened.”

Such a threat by Iran, Netanyahu said in remarks at the start of the meeting, have “become part of the international understanding of very broad segments of the world community.”

“People witnessed the brutal nature of this regime in the wake of its elections and Iran was caught red-handed building a nuclear facility, a secret nuclear facility in Qom,” he said.



  1. Wikileaks actually has shown that the US and Israel are among the most honest countries in the world; they say pretty much the same thing in public as in private. Unfortunately Wikileaks makes it even more difficult for the US to negotiate with the two-faced sharks as they now fear that what they say in private will become known — and at times such as when one needs to confront a real rogue like Iran, we need help from them. Assange is truly a menace to the world.

  2. now that the outgoing mossad chief and the cia maintain that the sanctions Obama’s adminstration brought about have removed the threat from this year to 2015, klal yisroel should have extra fervor on Shobbes morning in davening for the president who now with this new iran situation, along with backing israel on every military engagement israel has been involved in, as well as being the foremost supplier of money and arms to Israel, and soon to be the president who commutes the sentence or pardons Pollard…he will, or may, or should, go down in history as the greatest president the state of israel has had

  3. Orwell, go find another site for your Democratic brown-nosing. A statement such as “the greatest president the state of israel has had” has to take all facts into account, not just the cherry-picked speculations that you list. And by the way, the greatest president the State of Israel has had is probably Israeli, not American.
