-
Defense minister's comments come amid growing public calls for Israel not to hit Iran; US intel chief to visit for further talks on Tehran.

  • ISrael wont do shit, FACT! Its all a smoke screen to divert attention away from the continued theft of Palestinian land. Even your own politicians have said it, One Iranian rocket to hit Tel Aviv and Israel is finished!

      Playing the victim while secretly stealing land never gets old for the Israelis...

      LOL its only been expanding since 1948.

      When we talk of stealing, we are refering only to the lands occupied by the war Israel started in 1967.

      Israel steals by building "Jewish only" villages in this occupied territory on land it does not own, a war crime.

      Shrinking? You're obviously "one" of them.
