With North Korea really pushing its limits right now, making threats to not just the USA, South Korea, and Europe. Now North Korea has branched out and threatened our biggest ally in the middle-east, Israel.
The Jerusalem post write in a recent paper that Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor had insulted North Korea (not that that’s hard – just see how upset they are by a few little tweets), and now Israel is receiving threats from the communist dictator-led nation.
The defense minister apparently made these comments in response to a question about how Israel felt about the United States’ new tension with the Asian country.
The Jerusalem Post reports: Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman hurt the “dignity of the supreme leadership” of North Korea, state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Saturday. The comment was in reaction to Israeli remarks on how the Jewish State is affected by North Korean tension with the United States.
… “The reckless remarks of the Israeli defense minister are sordid and wicked behavior and grave challenge to the DPRK [North Korea],” the North Korean statement read.
The statement also claimed that Israel, while working with the US, was the Middle East’s only illegal owner of nuclear weapons… The statement threatened Israel and anyone who “dares hurt the dignity of its supreme leadership,” with “merciless, thousand-fold punishment.”
