Lapid Warns Israel Is Prepared to Stop Iran If Threats Continue. Herzog Issues Warning, too

(Jerusalem Post) Lahav Harkov - Israel is prepared to stop any threat from Iran, Prime Minister Yair Lapid warned during a visit to the Nevatim Air Force Base on Tuesday. "If Iran keeps trying, it will discover Israel's long arm and its abilities," Lapid said. "We will continue to act on every front against terrorism and those who wish us harm." Lapid cited U.S. President Joe Biden saying his country "will not tie Israel's hands" when it comes to defending itself and stopping the possibility that Iran will obtain a nuclear weapon. President Isaac Herzog, visiting Germany, implored the nations of the world in a speech before the Bundestag to stand up to Iran, its nuclear ambitions, and its threats to destroy Israel. "The possession of weapons of mass destruction by a UN member state that calls on a daily basis for the annihilation of another UN member state is simply inconceivable," Herzog said. "A state that denies the Holocaust, a state that acts out of hatred and belligerency, a state that threatens the State of Israel's right to exist is ineligible to sign deals that will only embolden it, is ineligible for kickbacks or funds, is ineligible for concessions, under any circumstances."
