Rivlin: Israel ‘Strong and Resilient’ in Face of Iran Threat

Iran will continue to intensify its fight against the Jewish state, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin warned on Monday.

Speaking at an Institute for National Security Studies conference in Tel Aviv, Rivlin stated, “I would choose two words to describe Israel’s strategic position in the near future: escalation and complexity. Escalation and intensification on one hand, complications and growing complexity on the other.”

The escalation, according to Rivlin, will come from Iran. “There are those who think that Iran’s regional plans have been halted or have been altered by Israeli action,” he said. “There are those who see escalation in the level of conflict and, in any case, Iran — I believe — will respond more forcefully to Israeli policy in the north, both in Syria and in Lebanon.”

“The Iranian challenge is not to our north but in the sphere of international diplomacy,” Rivlin explained, before noting, “I feel that the Europeans are getting closer to Israel’s view of the situation regarding the dangers emanating from the Iranian regime.”
