Danny Ayalon: Netanyahu's Address 'Speech of Our Generation'

By    |   Wednesday, 04 Mar 2015 11:39 AM

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s spirited address to the U.S. Congress on Tuesday imploring America not to approve the current deal with Iran over nuclear capability was "the speech of his life, maybe the speech of our generation," former Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister and Ambassador to the U.S. Danny Ayalon said Wednesday during an appearance on "America’s Forum."

"The most impressive to me was the historic analogy," Ayalon told Newsmax TV. "Just as in 1945, the allies did not submit concessions to Nazi Germany, or Japan, they demanded and received complete surrender because you cannot really negotiate with evil. This is the best for Iran."

Recognizing that the speech remains politically divisive both in the U.S. and Israel, Ayalon said he thinks it will ultimately prove to benefit Netanyahu and Israel.

"It will resonate very well among Israelis," he said, maintaining that Israel wants to work with the United States and other allies "but sometimes you have to call a spade a spade."

"I fully agree that it would have been better to do everything in private communication, but if that doesn't work, it was quite legitimate for the prime minister to do what he did," Ayalon said, adding that he hopes the attention going forward will focus "on the threat of Iran and not on the relationship between [President Barack] Obama and Netanyahu."

You cannot argue with facts, he said, and the Obama administration must now tell the world why "they treat Iran with kid gloves."

"Iran is no match for P5+1. Why do they have to walk on egg shells and not make demands to Iran — because Iran doesn't have any other alternatives. The assumption that they would walk away from the negotiations is the wrong assumption. If they do, the economy will collapse and political chaos will ensue. "
