As criticism in both Israel and the US of his planned speech to Congress continues to mount, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu framed the debate over Iran in life-and-death terms on Wednesday.It's also the responsibility of world leaders to combat jihadism too, and many of them abandoned it long ago, ditto the responsibility to their own populations.
“I respect the White House and the US president,” he said of the friction triggered by his decision to address Congress, “but on a matter so fateful that it could determine whether we exist or not, my obligation is do everything to prevent such a great danger to the State of Israel.”
Speaking to a Likud gathering in Ma’aleh Adumim, Netanyahu – after addressing the comptroller's report about housing – said the biggest threat to life in Israel and to the state is an Iran armed with nuclear weapons.
“We have many reasons to worry about the agreement that is being formulated now,” he said. “The world powers committed themselves to preventing Iran from getting a nuclear bomb, but from the emerging accord it appears that they have given up on that commitment and have come to accept the idea of Iran – gradually over the years – developing the ability to make the fissile material needed for many nuclear bombs.”
While the world may have come to accept this notion, “we have not,” he said.
Netanyahu said it is his responsibility as Israel’s leader to do everything he could to warn of the dangers and to oppose the deal.
