In TV interview, foreign minister vows that the Jewish state ‘will protect itself against the Iranian threat’
ed note–And once again ladies and Gentile-men, prima facie/proof-positive of ‘how they do it’, and it matters not whether it is a ‘right-winger’ such as Netanyahu saying this or a ‘leftie’ such as Lapid featured in the interview, as the ‘differences’ between the 2 are as diverse and diametrically-opposed to each other as 2 sides of a shark’s mouth–left and right–each side possessing razor-sharp teeth that have an identical twin just opposite them and which work in tandem in hunting, killing and devouring the shark’s prey.
First and foremost in decoding/understanding Lapid’s statement is that this is not a case of empty threats, and despite the fact that Iran is the only nation mentioned, in reality those ‘capabilities many cannot even imagine’ is a non-specific/generalized warning directed against the ENTIRE WORLD, no different than that infamous event where Nutty Netty was speaking at the UN General Assembly and threatened to blow up the entire planet, country by country, if the rest of the Gentile nations didn’t ‘get with the program’ that the Jewish state was demanding of them.
Now, doubtless that ‘the nations’–as the followers of Judaism disparagingly refer to the 7 billion Gentiles making up 99% of the world’s population–will pay little mind whatsoever to the hissing sound of the viper that is about to strike and kill. Doubtless as well that the microscopic fraction of those aforementioned 7 billion Gentiles who DO manage to pay more than the typical nanosecond’s worth of interest/attention will assume that Lapid’s statement concerning those ‘capabilities many cannot even imagine’ is something appearing in an episode of Star Wars, Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica involving hi-tech missiles, lasers, phasers, etc, etc, etc, when in fact it is more than likely something as simple as this–
Please note that Lapid deliberately referenced this fact at the very end of the interview, where he specifically named ‘France, Germany, the United States and the developed nations’ and the havoc that Covid is wreaking on those countries viz their economies and social infrastructure to how well Israel is handling all of it.

Foreign Minister Yair Lapid talked up Israel’s military capabilities amid talks between world powers and Iran on restoring the 2015 accord curbing Tehran’s nuclear program.
In an interview aired Friday to mark 10 years since he entered politics, Lapid was asked if Israel has the ability to strike uranium enrichment facilities and/or weapons sites in Iran.
‘Israel has capabilities, some of which the world, and even some experts in the field, cannot even imagine. And Israel will protect itself against the Iranian threat,’ he told Channel 12 news.
He also indicated Israel could attack Iran if necessary without informing the Biden administration, which is looking to rejoin the nuclear deal. Israel vocally opposed the accord, which is formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
‘Israel will do whatever it needs to do to protect its security. And we don’t need anybody’s permission for that. That’s been the case since the first day we established this state,’ he said.
Lapid also commented on the negotiations being held in Vienna to revive the nuclear deal, from which former president Donald Trump withdrew in 2018. Iran has since ramped up its nuclear activities in violation of the pact.
The foreign minister said there had not yet been a ‘capitulation’ to Iran during the talks, and stressed: ‘Israel is not against a good deal, it is only against the wrong deal.’
He added that Israel has shown information to world powers ‘that proves the Iranians are lying’ about their nuclear activities.
During the interview, Lapid also defended the government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, amid accusations of zigzagging in its response to the emergence of the Omicron variant.
‘When I compare us to what is happening in France, Germany, the United States, the developed nations, Israel is handing COVID significantly better than the world average,’ he said.
‘Sometimes you have to respond quickly to changing conditions,’ he said of the various policy shifts and restriction changes.
‘We’ve not had a single lockdown, we’ve kept the economy open,’ he said, referring to the coalition government that took office in June.
Israel’s top diplomat also noted there are currently fewer than 100 serious cases.
