Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Tuesday that while hoping international efforts to thwart Iran's nuclear aspirations succeed, Israel must act as if it can depend on nobody to protect it from the Iranian threat but itself.

"We must aspire to a situation in which the righteous work will be done by others, but act as if, 'if not me, who'" Ya'alon said in an interview with Army Radio, making use of a Hebrew adage touting self-reliance.

Ya'alon's comments came after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the Iranian threat on Monday, during his speech at the opening meeting of the Knesset winter session.

"“Iran is continuing in its attempts to arm itself with nuclear weapons,” he said. “A nuclear Iran will threaten the Middle East, the world and Israel.”
