Minister from the right: MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union): "Netanyahu must fire Barak. It's true that Netanyahu makes the sounds of a Prime Minister, but the one dictating policy on the ground is Defense Minister Barak." Avi Roeh, who heads the Binyamin Regional Council, arrived at the site shortly after the destruction, and promised, "Meoz Esther will be rebuilt and will be even larger than before." Outspoken right-wing Israeli Knesset Member Aryeh Eldad said that what he took away from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's meeting with US President Barack Obama on Monday was that America is on its way to abandoning the Jewish state.

Speaking to Israel National News, Eldad stressed that Obama had insisted on a deadline-free negotiating process with Iran, despite Netanyahu explaining that a nuclear-armed Iran poses a very real existential threat that Israel cannot accept.

Obama's position essentially means that while the US would prefer for Iran not to go nuclear, it is willing to accept that outcome, said Eldad, adding, "Israel will have no choice but to destroy the Iranian nuclear facilities with all the means at its disposal, be the price what it may."

Netanyahu had hoped to convince Obama that while the Israeli-Arab conflict had been going on for decades, the Iranian nuclear crisis is a game-changing issue that must be dealt with independently and immediately.

Thank you Israel Lives
