Israel to Arab states: let’s form coalition against Iran
Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman called on Arab states to make peace with Israel in order to create a coalition against Iran.
Writing on his Facebook page, Liberman referred to late Egyptian President Anwar Sadat’s visit to Jerusalem 40 years ago, which eventually led to a peace deal. He described Sadat as “a brave leader, who stood against the tide and paved the way for other Arab leaders to recognize the importance of strategic ties with Israel.”
"I call on leaders in the region to follow the path of President Sadat, come to Jerusalem and open a new chapter, not just in terms of Israel’s relations with the Arab world, but for the whole region," Liberman wrote.
Sadat was the first Arab leader to embark on an official visit to Israel. He was later assassinated for making peace with the Jewish state.
