Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu marked his government's three-year anniversary on Tuesday, touting its handling of the Iranian nuclear threat, but admitting that the threat was not neutralized and Israel must continue to urge the international community to put increasing pressure on the Islamic Republic.

Netanyahu stated that his government had effectively dealt with unprecedented problems, such as the Iranian threat, "the Islamic revolution sweeping the area," and the kind of world economic upheaval seen "once in a hundred years."In addition to the Iranian threat, the prime minister said that the biggest threats against Israel were rockets and missiles, the cyber threat, and borders.

The prime minister appeared to take a swipe at his potential challengers for the leadership of the country, stating that "he that cannot act on the world stage, cannot lead the State of Israel."
