ASTANA, Kazakhstan – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu conveyed a message to Iran on Wednesday, warning the Islamic Republic’s leaders: “Don’t threaten us, we are not a rabbit, we are a tiger. If you threaten us you endanger yourself.”

Netanyahu spoke after being asked during his visit to Kazakhstan by President Nursultan Nazarbayev if he wanted to send a message to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who is scheduled to visit Kazakhstan next week.

Netanyahu added that if Iran changes its policy and attitude toward Israel, “we will change ours.”

When asked by his host if he sincerely believed that Iran means what it says, that it wants to destroy Israel, he answered, “Yes, I do believe it.”
