Netanyahu: In fighting Iran, we serve security and peace beyond Mideast

In fighting Iran, Israel “serves the cause of security and peace beyond the Middle East,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday, in his address to the the International Homeland Security Forum in Jerusalem.

“We ask for the support of your governments,” he added, appealing to the 20 Ministers at the conference hosted by Israel’s Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan.

“After the Iran deal, it took the money and started expanding its empire, trying to put military in Syria, trying to attack Israel – we are of course resisting it,” Netanyahu said, comparing the threat of the Islamic State and that of another branch of militant Shia Islam, led by Iran, which he said is trying to create an empire. The latter, he said, is a “much bigger” threat.

Iran is trying to colonize Syria, as part of its first goal of defeating Israel, Netanyahu said. “It wants to use 80,000 Shia militants in Syria. Syria is 90% Sunni – their goal is to convert the Sunnis. This is the recipe for another civil war… by preventing that we are also helping the security of other countries of the world,” he asserted.

Netanyahu also outlined how Israel is fighting the threat of the Islamic State, saying that Israel has stopped dozens upon dozens of attacks.

The Islamic State group is trying to start a state in Sinai he said, adding that “we are preventing a mass migration and an ISIS state in Sinai…we don’t want another ISIS state.”
