We did not look for wars. They were forced upon us. But when we were attacked, we did not have the right to lose a single time. And when we won we returned to seeking peace. Today, I suggest to those who seek war not to make the same mistake again. Do not disrespect our ability ... we are prepared to physically defend our land and morally defend our heritage.

UPDATE:Although the above is reprinted from May 20, 2011, Netanyahu will be in Washington today to speak again with Obama. The topic this time is the red line for Iran's nuclear bomb ambitions. For Israel, there is no delusion about Iran's intent, and no margin of error.
