Sen. Menendez follows Netanyahu, calls to defend Israel

New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez follows Netanyahu, calling for efforts to be “redoubled” in protecting Israel against regional threats.

He rattles off a laundry list of challenges, including Syria breaking apart, terror in Turkey.

“The region is in turmoil …. the integrity of national borders in question,” he says.

He says Iran is emboldened by the nuke deal and is launching missiles that threaten Israel.

“We signed the JPOA and surprise surprise, Iran is already testing the agreement … testing missiles,” he says, bashing the nuke deal and using the wonky term for it.

“We can never allow Iran to threaten Israel or the region with a nuclear weapon,” he says to applause.
