Bennett: Israel consulting allies on Iran, but we will protect ourselves
“We will continue to consult with our allies to convince, to talk, to share information and understandings, through deep mutual respect.”

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett for the first time on Thursday publicly presented the shift on Iran policy from the previous government, saying that Israel will work closely with its allies on countering Tehran’s nuclear program, while maintaining a credible military threat. “We will continue to consult with our allies to convince, to talk, to share information and understandings, through deep mutual respect,” Bennett said at the graduation ceremony for new Israel Air Force pilots.

“But, in the end,” he added, “we will retain responsibility for our fate in our own hands, and not in anyone else’s hands. We will behave responsibly and seriously to protect the great legacy of which we are custodians.” Israel would prefer a world that understands that “this violent, fanatical regime, that elected ‘the hangman of Tehran’ as its president, that is willing to starve its nation for years in order to attain a military nuclear program, is a regime with which one cannot do business,” Bennett said. “Unfortunately, that is not the case.”

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett on Thursday attended the IAF pilot's course graduation ceremony at the Hatzerim airbase. "It is our responsibility to maintain the safety of the State of Israel, to guarantee its existence. On this, there are no, and will be no, compromises," he said. "Each and every Israeli prime minister, from Ben Gurion, through Begin, until today, has had one sacred duty as a guide: We will not allow an existential threat to loom over the State of Israel. The years go by and our adversaries change and advance. Then it was Iraq, today, Iran. The level of sophistication and determination of our enemies has increased," added Bennett.
