excerpts from:  Address by President Shimon Peres to the European Parliament

Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs website, 12 March 2013


[emphasis added]



The greatest danger to peace in the world is the present Iranian Regime. It became a dictatorship cloaked in a religious mantle. It developed an imperial appetite.

Nobody threatens Iran. Iran threatens others. It endangers the independence of Arab countries. It menaces the mere existence of Israel.

It smuggles arms into many countries in order to undermine their stability.

They deny the Holocaust. They call for another Holocaust.

They are aiming to build a nuclear weapon and they deny it. A nuclear bomb in the hands of an irresponsible regime is an imminent danger to the world. […]

In addition to the nuclear bomb, Iran is constructing long-range missiles equipped with nuclear warheads. It can reach the far corners of the world, including Europe. […]

Iran supports terrorism throughout the world. Its main proxy, Hezbollah, carries out terror attacks and threatens the stability of the entire region. […]

Today, Hezbollah, supported by Iran, is destroying Lebanon. Hezbollah is a terror organization. Not a political movement. They collect missiles. They are trigger-happy. They hide missiles in peaceful towns and villages. By doing so, they turn them into a war target.

Hezbollah divided Lebanon politically, religiously and ethnically. It turned the land of the cedar tree into a scorched and barren land.

Hezbollah is a state within a state. A private army apart from the national army. It sends soldiers to support the massacre of a bloody dictator in Syria. With no authorization of the government of which it is a member.

Recently, 20 terror attempts by Hezbollah were counted all over the world, in India, Thailand, Georgia, South Africa, the U.S.A., Egypt and Greece, among others.

Last month, the government of Bulgaria, a member of this European Union, reported that it had identified that the terror attack in Burgas, was carried out by Hezbollah. Five Israeli tourists and one Bulgarian citizen lost their lives. […]

Distinguished Members of the [European] Parliament,

Your voice is highly respected. We appeal to you – call terror – terror. Save Lebanon from terrorist madness. Save the Syrian people from Iran’s proxies. Save your citizens and ours from Hezbollah.

The international community must designate Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. […]

[The free world] cannot stand by when a massacre is carried out by the Syrian president against his own people and his own children. It breaks all our hearts.

Assad secretly built a nuclear installation and an arsenal of chemical weapons.

While the nuclear installation was destroyed in time (*), the chemical arms remain in his hands to this very day. This terrible danger threatens the Syrian people, the entire region and even Europe.

A solution must be found to prevent the chemical weapons from falling into the wrong hands.

The best solution to put an end to the Syrian tragedy might be achieved by empowering the Arab League, of which Syria is a member, to intervene.

The intervention of Western forces would be perceived as a foreign interference.

The Arab League can and should form a provisional government in Syria to stop the massacre, to prevent Syria from falling to pieces. The United Nations should support an Arab force in blue helmets.




(*)  Mr Peres refers to the September 2007 Israeli Air Force bombing raid on Syria through Turkey’s airspace.
