Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman says Israel “will not be a second Czechoslovakia.”
When push comes to shove, many world leaders would sacrifice Israel to appease Islamist radicals and buy quiet “without batting an eyelash,” Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Wednesday at The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference.
The Foreign Minister said that all the promises and expressions of commitment to Israel’s security from various leaders around the world reminds him of 1938 Czechoslovakia when the country, with international guarantees, were pressured to sacrifice national interests. The Nazis then quickly overran the country. Israel, he said, “will not be a second Czechoslovakia.”
Liberman said that while the obsession of the international community with the Palestinian issue was “difficult to understand, he added it has to do with “annoyance” at seeing one successful democratic nation in the region thriving economically despite the global fiscal crisis.
