Iran, the leading patron of terrorism in the world, blackmails the world powers for further concessions. Iran is the biggest threat to world peace. The concessions agreement Iran is about to receive from the world powers paves its way to acquiring nuclear weapons.
(Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Adviser)
Following is an excerpt from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks yesterday (Tuesday, 7 July 2015), at the state memorial ceremony for Theodor (Binyamin Zeev) Herzl, on Mt. Herzl in Jerusalem:
The fire in the Middle East is threatening to rage out of control. On the one side is the radical Shiite camp led by Iran, and on the other side is the Sunni warhead in the form of ISIS, conducting ruthless terrorism with horrifying fanaticism and waging all-encompassing wars between themselves. However, at the same time, they are united in their hatred of the West and their desire to trample the achievements of freedom and progress.
Iran, the leading patron of terrorism in the world, blackmails the world powers for further concessions. Iran is the biggest threat to world peace. The concessions agreement Iran is about to receive from the world powers paves its way to acquiring nuclear weapons and for the rapid proliferation of those weapons with the missiles it continues to develop, and of course will allow it continue to spread terrorism, through its network that covers more than 30 countries to date.
How is possible to trust a country that violates the decisions of the international community time and again? How is Iran to be given hundreds of billions of dollars without imposing conditions that this money will not fuel the wheels of the terrorism machine and its proliferation? Iran’s aggression is much more dangerous than that of ISIS, which is dangerous enough by itself. And this aggression will reach every corner of the world because Iran’s ultimate goal is to take over the world.
Today one of the greatest movie directors in Iran, Mohsen Makhmalbaf, was quoted – he is a very courageous man, an internationally renowned artist – he does not hesitate to criticize the regime and the tyrants in his country. This is a man who was tortured by the regime and is often threatened by it, He says, "Khamenei is worse than Hitler. If he could, he would have destroyed the world."
This is what he says. About Rouhani, the smiling face of the Ayatollah regime, he says, "Rouhani is powerless; he is only the spokesperson of the Supreme Leader." These words reinforce what we have known for a long time, and that is why Iran must be stopped before it is too late.
Israel does not stand still. We prepare for any scenario, determined to protect ourselves from the danger, and at the same time we continue to build and develop the country.
