Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu slammed international negotiators in Vienna this morning (Sunday, July 12) at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem, warning the current nuclear deal being discussed with Iran “endangers world peace.”
The prime minister noted with obvious exasperation that negotiators have now reached the point that they have crossed even their own red lines in their desperation to reach a deal in their nuclear talks with Iran.
All this, while Iran’s top leader is vowing to “wage war” on the United States – which is leading the talks – and which is encouraging Iranians in rallies where they chant “Death to America, Death to Israel.”
“I want to address events in Tehran,” Netanyahu said in Hebrew. (English-language transcript follows)
“Iran’s leader [Ayatollah Ali] Khamenei is quoted as saying that they need to prepare to wage war on the U.S., without any connection to whether or not there will be a deal.
“Iranian President Hassan Rouhani headed the parade of hate in Tehran, a parade in which American and Israeli flags were burned, and the crowds chanted ‘Death to America,’ ‘Death to Israel.’
“Meanwhile in Vienna, the parade of concessions to Iran continues, concessions even on issues that were underlined as red lines in the Lausanne agreement – which is a bad deal in itself.
“It advances Ira’s path to nuclear bombs and gives Iran’s occupying terror machine hundreds of billions of dollars.
“Thus, this deal endangers world peace,” Netanyahu concluded bluntly.
