THE ONLY EXISTENTIAL THREAT IS INTERNAL:

Ex-Mossad chief Tamir Pardo: Netanyahu broke policy with Iran, US (YONAH JEREMY BOB,  JUNE 9, 2021, Jerusalem Post)

Former Mossad director Tamir Pardo on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has broken the country's strategy for dealing with Iran with the support of the US.

Speaking at the Meir Dagan conference at Netanya Academic College, Pardo said it was a massive strategic error for Netanyahu to be in open conflict with the Obama and Biden administrations over Iran.

The former Mossad chief asked how Netanyahu could dare to say Jerusalem will completely ignore Washington, when it is America which provides both the aircraft and the weapons which the Jewish state uses and needs to defend itself.

Pardo said, "we must do everything to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon," but that it was a mistake for Netanyahu to call it an existential threat as if, should the Islamic Republic someday get such a weapon, all of the Jews would need to flee from the Middle East.

The particular problem is that Bibi/Donald make no bones about Israel/America being an existential threat to Iran, but then expect it to acquiesce.
