Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said on Thursday that the Iranian regime would ultimately be forced to choose between survival and developing a nuclear weapon.
Speaking during an event at the home of the German ambassador to Israel, Yaalon said, "Without a shadow of a doubt, the biggest challenge that the free world is currently facing is the Iranian nuclear threat. Iran is the greatest threat, not just to the Middle East but to the entire Western world. The extremist regime in Iran is negatively involved in all the conflicts in the Middle East. The regime in Iran trains, arms and finances terrorist organizations, especially Hezbollah. It sends its destructive arms across Europe, America, Africa and the Far East. It is determined to develop nuclear weapons that will endanger the existence of the Middle East and the entire world.”
