Even as world powers’ talks with Iran continued on Thursday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made clear a “bad” agreement would not obligate Israel and promised that Iran would not get nuclear weapons.
“The Iranians deny our past and repeat their commitment to wipe the State of Israel off the map. This reminds us of the dark regimes of the past that plotted against us first and then against all of humanity,” he said to a gathering of local Jewish leaders.
Netanyahu said that the “true” Iran was not the one of propaganda films produced by Foreign Minister Javad Zarif smiling and speaking about a peaceful future, but rather that of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei calling Jews “rabid dogs.” Khamenei, at a rally in Iran on Wednesday, called Israel an “illegitimate regime” led by “untouchable rabid dogs.”
