Netanyahu warns of turmoil in next 4 years

Feb. 16, 2015 9:36 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 17, 2015 10:08 A.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Monday that the term of the incoming top Israeli commander would be tougher than that of his predecessor.

"I promise you Gadi (Eisenkot)… you will not have a single day of grace. The Middle East is disintegrating. States are collapsing. An empire is charging into this vacuum – Iran," Netanyahu said.

"It aspires to acquire nuclear weapons. It is trying to encircle us with four murderous arms. Three, for now – one in Lebanon, one in Gaza and a new one – on the Golan. It vows openly to destroy the State of Israel in one way or another. Joining it are the forces of extremist Islam who are breaking through every crack in the Middle East and bringing their murderous acts to the entire world."

He added, according to the Israeli daily Haaretz, that "The next four years will be no less difficult. To my assessment, they will be even tougher. We will require every tool, every person, because there's no mercy for the weak in the Middle East. Only the strong ones survive. The IDF is strong in spirit, and certainly in might."

Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot assumed the position of the 21st chief of staff on Monday, Haaretz said.
