Israel Wants Shift in Focus to Iran
8 Apr 09 | PTV
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman says Israel should shift its focus from the Palestinian issue to “the biggest problem”, Iran.
Defending the Israeli government’s opposition to the peace process, Lieberman said Israel is working “with determination” on the issue and has made an attempt to change the subject by bringing up the “Iran issue”.
“The biggest problem isn’t the Palestinians, but the Iranians,” Lieberman said.
“From their ballistic missiles, nonconventional weapons and nuclear program, to their involvement in Lebanon and Gaza, Iran poses a much graver threat to Israel than the Palestinians do, and the focus should be moved from the Palestinians over to Iran,” added the Israeli minister.
The push by Lieberman to shift focus to Iran came after US Vice President Joe Biden warned Israel on Tuesday against any military action on Iran. >>>
