Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the Knesset on Monday, officially asking to advance elections to January 22 and making the case that he was the only person who could lead the country going forward.

Netanyahu compared the situation when he took over as prime minister in 2009  to the situation the country finds itself in today. He described himself as a leader that had "brought security back to Israel's citizens," sayng that when he took over in 2009, "thousands of missiles were being fired on the South."

He added that two years earlier, missiles were being fired from Lebanon on the North, saying that the previous government displayed "negligence" toward Israel's security.

The prime minister attacked his rivals, saying that "anyone who underestimates the threat that a nuclear Iran poses to Israel is not worthy to be prime minister even one day."
