Ahead of speech, Iran’s Zarif taunts PM as ‘boy who cried wolf’

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is taunting Netanyahu ahead of his televised speech in which the Israeli leader said he would reveal “significant” developments regarding the Iran nuclear deal.

“The boy who can’t stop crying wolf is at it again. Undeterred by cartoon fiasco at UNGA,” Zarif says in a tweet. “You can only fool some of the people so many times.”

The tweet accompanied a picture of Netanyahu’s speech to the UN General Assembly in 2012 in which he presented a visual aid of a cartoon bomb to illustrate how far Iran’s nuclear program had progressed.
