PM: Rocket Launchers will Pay the Price


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met, Sunday afternoon, with Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle of Germany. Referring to weekend rocket attacks in remarks at the start of the meeting, Netanyahu noted, "You come on a day when our security is again tested; when terrorists from Gaza are firing at Israel's cities. I'm absolutely committeed to making clear to these terrorists that they can't do this with impunity. They have paid a price in the past for these crimes and they'll pay a price again."

Westerwelle responded, "We condemn every kind of terrorist attacks against Israel. We stand together with Israel, which means, of course, that we share also the concern about the Iranian nuclear program. For us any kind of nuclear option, weapons in the hands of the Iranian government is not acceptable to us, nuclear arms in the hands of the Iranian government is not an option and we will not accept this."
