Global anti-Semitism is inflamed by Jewish survival, existence and success -- it sets itself on fire with or without us; it does not depend upon what we do or don't do. Therefore, we should do what is in our best interests - if it is to persuade the world to sanction Iran out of its murderous intentions or if it is to act independently, the purpose of the establishment of Israel was to (1) provide a safe haven where Jews could practice self-determination and (2) to protect Jews militarily, politically, economically, etc. from those who would do us harm. Netanyahu speaks from that place; it is not babble, it is clear and sound as a bell.
