PM: Israel, US have ‘grand mission’ over Iranian threat
In interview with Fox News Netanyahu describes his meeting with President Trump as a “historical moment,” and “a meeting of the minds and hearts” • The nuclear deal has only made Iran more aggressive, dangerous to the U.S., Israel and the world, he says.
Netanyahu, who met with President Donald Trump at the White House on Wednesday, described the meeting as a “historical moment,” as well as “a meeting of the minds and a meeting of the hearts.”
“I feel we have now, as the president says, an even stronger alliance. A new day, he called it. Maybe a new age,” Netanyahu said.
Commenting on the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran Netanyahu said, “The deal essentially said this, it said no bomb today, 100 bombs tomorrow, in 10 years. Now the assumption was, people [would say] ‘Well, okay, we’re kicking the can down the road.’ But this nuclear can of a single bomb then becomes the capacity to make dozens and dozens of bombs. And Iran doesn’t change its attitude.
“Since the signing of the deal, Iran has become more aggressive, more deadly, sponsoring more terrorism … with more money, a lot more money,” the prime minister said. “They’ve killed Americans all over the place. They’ve sponsored terrorism against Americans all over the place. Now they’re going to build ICBMs [intercontinental ballistic missiles] that can reach the United States and have multiple warheads to do that? That’s horrible.”
A nuclear Iran, he stressed, “is dangerous for America, dangerous for Israel, dangerous for the Arabs. Everybody now understands it and there’s an American president who understands it and we’re talking about what to do about this common threat.”
