Netanyahu: We Will Strike Those Who Threaten To Attack Israel [View all]

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a press conference on Tuesday to mark three years since his coalition took office. "We will attack those who threaten to attack us," he said, referring not only to the Iranian threat but to the threats of rockets from the Gaza Strip.

In its first three years, the government "has brought about a series of reforms and important structural changes that helped the economy grow, helped reduce social disparities and helped Israel through the severe economic crisis of 2008 and 2009," he added.

On Iran, Netanyahu said that Israel should seek support from the international community for applying more pressure on Iran. "One who is not able to operate in the global arena cannot lead Israel," he said, "and we have proved this ability."

The prime minister's office had planned Tuesday's press conference for a long time, in order to present the governments achievements since it was formed in 2009. Netanyahu's office even prepared a special animated video to for the occasion.
