Netanyahu says nuclear deal has fueled Iran’s ‘war machine’

Turning to the Iran nuclear deal, Netanyahu says the accord handed “billions of dollars to the leading sponsor of terrorism in the world.”

Netanyahu asserts the funds didn’t go to Iranian citizens but instead to “Iran’s war machine, which is bent on conquering the entire Middle East.”

Netanyahu says Israel has provided European countries with intel on Iranian terror plots on the continent, referring to foiling of a plot involving an Iranian diplomat and targeting a meeting of an opposition group in Paris.

He also says Iran must also cease using Syria and Lebanon as “forward bases” to attack Israel.

Despite “the danger that Iran poses,” Netanyahu says it has had the benefit of bringing Israel and the Arab states “close as never before,” calling these growing ties a “great hope for the future.”
