Ayalon Calls for "Legal Iron Dome" to Protect Israel

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon told a conference of senior jurists, “just as the Israel Defense Forces are at this minute protecting the citizens of Israel who are under a barrage or rocket fire and Palestinian terror, so we ask you to deploy an international legal Iron Dome over Israel’s right to self-defense, and allow the IDF to win.” He made the statements at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs conference in Paris, France on Wednesday. The conference, entitled ‘Legal Challenges and Opportunities in Israel’s Policy and Advocacy Conference,’ was also held last year in London, England.
Ayalon added, “Your legal protection of Israel’s right to self-defense means the preservation of the right of the West, of morality and of the ethical, enlightened world to fight the evil forces of terrorism," according to a press release from tthe Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
