“Don’t be like the Jews” who kick men, women and children when they’re on the ground, Turkish President Erdogan tells youths in Istanbul
Former Israeli Gen. Amos Yadlin, currently the executive director of the Institute for National Security Studies, reassured that “Syria, Israel was and remains the only actor enforcing red lines on the Iranians.

Iran’s allegedly “moderate” President Hassan Rouhani has called Israel a “cancerous tumor.” He doubled down by suggesting that Israel was a “fake regime” established by Western countries. This moderate language seems suspiciously similar to the supposedly hard-line Ayatollah Khamenei. It perfectly exemplifies the fine line between moderates and hard-liners in Iran.
