Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is coming under fire for appearing to call for war with Iran.
Speaking at an international conference on the Mideast in Poland, Netanyahu says in Hebrew “I am going to a meeting with 60 foreign ministers and envoys of countries from around the world against Iran. What is important about this meeting – and this meeting is not in secret, because there are many of those – is that this is an open meeting with representatives of leading Arab countries, that are sitting down together with Israel in order to advance the common interest of war with Iran.”
Netanyahu uses the Hebrew word “milchama,” which can also mean combating Iran in this context.
While some of Netanyahu’s spokespeople correct the quote to read “combating Iran,” his official Twitter account has kept it as “war.”
