You'Re watching the fox business network we're coming into the bottom of the hour. It'S a show of us military power and muscle b-52 bombers, headed to the middle east, alongside the uss lincoln carrier group, to counter iran's threats to u. s. troops. Joining me now is former israeli ambassador to the u. s. he's danny island welcome ambassador. Thank you liz. What'S your take on the now, the b-52 ...
ombers said it over there. Well, i think this is the most effective way to deter iran, they're masters of bluffing manipulation and cheating, but when they encounter force, certainly a superior force and not just the ability, but also the will to use it, they will back off and idon't think they have Any other options, i believe, also that, once the europeans join the sanctions, then they will really have to come up to the negotiation table and to change the the very principles of the jcpoa, which was very faulty and gave iran undue advantages. Can you spell out the iranian threat to the world to u. s.

troops and also iran's human rights abuses? I mean the u. s. is now saying it would not be held by the regime's nuclear blackmail, their reports, the run, is threatening us troops and if they were on threatened to pull out of the deal. What'S your reaction to all of what i just asked about? Yes, well, iran is nomatch and i think to certainly to us a capability by the way, liz. They were no match to israeli capabilities in in syria and they have suffered heavily not only in terms of material loss and and they are terrorists and and soldiers, but also in terms of i would say, reputation and deterrence here in the middle east. They have been rendered almost like a paper tiger, so i don't think that they will there moving further head-on against the us or not even israel. This is why they are using proxies and they have been very, very good at using proxies whether it was the hezbollah or hamas or the palestinian islamic jihad. So i think thisprobably would be there. I would say their way of operation and also maybe using terror squads. As they have been using in latin america or in europe and other places talk to us about the iron dome and israel and the airstrikes over the weekend, we saw reports at least 200 rockets out of the gaza strip were intercept, intercepted hamas is saying no, it Beat the israelis iron dome that they're flooding your zone with rockets and that's how they beat it talk to us about that. Well, is all told the hamas fired the 650 rockets on israel in less than 24 hours. They try to saturate the skies, but again most of those rockets were interceptedby, the iron dome, which have really kept israel having this leverage not having to really use excessive force and penetrating into into gaza.

So this iron force, not only is, is a strategic defense, but it also obviates some ground force operations and doing it more in a cleaner way. And here we have to really thank our best friends in la united states of america, and i think that the technology that we developed together with america is saving a lot of israelis and american troops all over the world. Israeli ambassador to the us, a former israeli ambassador, danny aiello, and thank you so much for coming on. I appreciate it.
