Former Israeli Defense Minister: The International Community Is Failing to Deal with Iran

(Jerusalem Post) Anna Ahronheim - Former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon told the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism at IDC in Herzliya on Tuesday that "the world has become accustomed to the fact that Lebanon was kidnapped by a terrorist organization [Hizbullah] operated by another country. But the reality is that the international community has become used to the world order and does not deal with it." "The Iranian regime continues to violate United Nations Security Council resolutions and distributes weapons and terrorism," he said. "It transfers arms to Lebanon and Yemen, for example, and does not pay a price. There are enough reasons to impose sanctions on Iran and even worsen the existing ones." He noted that Turkey helped finance Islamic State by buying oil from it and allowing people to pass freely through its territory to join the group in Syria and Iraq and then go back to their home countries as trained terrorists.
