Israeli Foreign Minister to EU: Europe Must Recognize Israel Is Under Attack

(Jerusalem Post) Lahav Harkov - Europe must remember that Israel is under constant threat from Iran, Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid told EU foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday. Lapid called Iran "the No. 1 exporter of terrorism in the world, which never gave up on its ambition to attain a nuclear weapon and never hid who its target is for that weapon: Us. Israel." Iran backs Hizbullah in Lebanon to the north and Hamas in Gaza to the south, he said. Israel would like "to broaden the circle of peace" to include the Palestinians, Lapid said. "Unfortunately, there is no possibility at the moment....If there will be a Palestinian state, it needs to be a peace-seeking democracy....You cannot ask us to build with our own hands another threat to our lives."
