Bibi Tells Jewish Agency, ‘No Sanctions without Military Threat’

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the Jewish Agency Board of Governors in Jerusalem Monday that North Korea is a classic example that shows that sanctions against Iran will not work without a real military threat.

“When people with unlimited ambitions of aggression get unlimited weapons, what they believe are weapons of unlimited power, the demon is uncorked, and it’s happened before. Up to the point when they think that they’ve got the power to work out their mad designs, … but this is nothing compared to the point where they think they’ve assumed the critical mass of power necessary to carry out their fantasies,” said the Prime Minister.

He added, “Iran is seeking the power of mass death…. So far, they’ve not been stopped.  And the sanctions themselves – even tougher sanctions – will not stop them.

“Case in point, North Korea.  Have tough sanctions stopped North Korea?  No.  And the fact that they produced a nuclear explosion reverberates everywhere in the Middle East, and especially in Iran.  They say, ‘Where is the world?  Where is the international community?  Where is the tough response?’

“Sanctions alone will not stop the nuclear program of Iran.  They have to be coupled with a robust, credible military threat.  If they are not, there’s no chance to stop it.”

    More right-wing hawk talk from a country that should have learned their lessons the hard way. But instead treat the Palestinians the same way they were treated just before the "Final Plan". If They had their way, they would have enacted their own plan long ago, if it were not for the US and world watching them.

    "…should have learned their lessons the hard way"?? Cool story, bro. Thanks for the anti-semitic clap trap, people can now safely ignore your bull**** thanks to that line.
