During a heated Likud faction meeting Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it clear that Israel will soon have to remove the illegal West Bank outposts as demanded by the US – and then focus its attention on the Iranian nuclear threat.
"These are unusual times, and the threat is heading towards us. The most dangerous thing for a living organism is not recognizing the danger. My job is to secure the State of Israel's future. This takes precedence over everything else," Netanyahu said.
The PM added "during the election campaign I also said that we are a law abiding country, and we will have to deal with the illegal outposts – hopefully by way of dialogue," the PM told the faction meeting.
Not only because it's wrong but because it will begin to undercut his political base of a coalition.
