Israel ‘will do what it needs to’ against a nuclear Iran, Bennett says
“Iran poses a strategic threat to the world and an existential threat to Israel, and they ought not to be allowed to get away with it," said Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

Israel will do what is necessary to protect itself against the Iranian existential threat, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said on Thursday, as world powers are expected to hold November 29 talks in Vienna with Tehran on the renewal of the 2015 nuclear deal. “We will not tire, we will be relentless, when we are talking about the very existence of the Jewish state, we will do what we need to do,” Bennett said in a virtual address to a United States-based virtual conference by the group United Against a Nuclear Iran.

“Iran poses a strategic threat to the world and an existential threat to Israel, and they ought not to be allowed to get away with it. “If Iran goes nuclear, you will get Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the whole Middle East will go nuclear. We have to keep up our pressure on Iran, and we have to stay united in our efforts to do so,” Bennett said. Former US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, who served under the Trump administration, said she believed the Iran deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was outdated.

More blather.
no I don't think so. This is a measured response to Iran, and it is part of the current war that is going on between Iran and Israel as well as Iran versus Saudi Arabia. it's being fought via drone attacks on shipping, and ports as well as cyber warfare and Iran's use of proxies in the area.

Israel is keeping the rest of the world aware of Iran as a threat not just to Israel but to the Middle East as a whole, and tangentially the rest of the planet.

It's more than a war of words. But news releases and these carefully crafted communiques are part of the whole thing.
