Gantz: I Stand With Netanyahu Against Iran
Speaking in a side auditorium at the Munich Security Conference, the former army chief said that while he and Netanyahu are political rivals and disagree on many things, “When Israel’s security is under threat, there is no daylight between us. On this critical issue there is no right or left. There is no coalition or opposition.”
Gantz said he stands “shoulder-to-shoulder” with the prime minister in the fight against Iran’s aggression and that he is certain Netanyahu “will do the same when I will be the prime minister of Israel.”
Regarding the situation on Israel’s northern border, Gantz said that the “absurd situation” Lebanon could lead to a war which Israel does not seek, and that it is Europe’s duty to prevent this. Those who seek peace, security and stability, he said, must recognize Hezbollah as the terrorist organization that it is.
Gantz, however, said that under his leadership, “Israel will always reach its hand out to anyone who seeks peace with us.”
On a positive note, the former army chief said that “pragmatic Arabs and Israelis are closer than ever before” and that “many in the Arab world have realized that Israel is not part of the problem but part of the solution.”
Earlier Sunday, Iran’s foreign minister accused Israel of looking for war and warned that its behaviour and that of the United States was increasing the chances of a clash in the region.
“The risk (of war) is great. The risk will be even greater if you continue to turn a blind eye to severe violations of international law. Israeli behavior is putting international law on the shelf, U.S. behavior is putting international law on the shelf,” Zarif said.
