"Iran is an ever-increasing threat not only to Israel, but to the stability of the region, to pragmatic Arab states and to the hegemony of the sane and realistic West," said chairman of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee MK Tzahi Hanegbi (Kadima) Saturday afternoon following reports that Iran will give Syria $1 billion in military aid. "Syria's convergence to Iran demonstrates Assad's hasty and hazardous nature. In contrast to his father, Hafez, Bashar is taking exaggerated risks and is placing the very existence of his regime in jeopardy," said Hanegbi.
