Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday called for Likud faction members to refrain from speaking out against the removal of illegal outposts in the West Bank, so as not to harm the fight against the Iranian threat. "We're not [living] in ordinary times," he told MKs. "The danger is gaining on us. The most dangerous threat to a living organism is not to identify danger. My role, first and foremost, is to secure the future of the State of Israel. This comes before anything else." Netanyahu also emphasized the importance of strong Israel-US relations, and reiterated his call for unity within the government.
