I believe that the statement does make good sence. Imagine a war starts against Syria, consequences is that HEZB, Hamas, Syria would send thousands of missiles in all directions. Israel will retaliate, of course, with N W but it would probably be too late for the death of many thousands Israelis and millions of Arabs. I also believe that the FM is right it is better to move for Peace than WARS.
