Netanyahu to Iranian people: ‘You are our friends’

“Many supporters of the nuclear deal naively believed that it would moderate Iran. It would make it a responsible member, so they said, of the international community,” says Netanyahu.

“Well as you know, I strongly disagreed. I warned that when the sanctions on Iran would be removed, Iran would behave like a hungry tiger unleashed, not joining the community of nations, but devouring nations, one after the other. And that’s precisely what Iran is doing today.”

Netanyahu says he has a “simple message” for Aytaolla Khameini, Iran’s dictator.

“The light of Israel will never be extinguished,” he says in Hebrew.

He also has a message to the Iranian people, he says.

“You are our friends,” he says in Persian.
